Björk (pronounced bee-york) is most commonly known for her quirky songs and crazy music videos, but did anyone know that she was also a fashion model (and icon)? Well, since I am loving Katy Perry and her songs right now, I have been listening to her Celebrity Playlist Podcast on itunes. She lists all of the songs that she is obsessed right now and one of the songs just happened to be “Oh So Quiet” by Björk! Katy explained how Björk has a fabulously crazy style and how her music videos were just out of this world. So, of course, I had to go look Björk up to see what this was all about. I found out so many interesting and really weird things about her, one of them being her fashion sense. I seem to have a strong interest for people who aren’t afraid to wear what they want (even if it does make it on the worst dressed list). For example Betsy Johnson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cher, Heidi Klum, Katy Perry and now Björk!

Right now, I’m all over the “Katy Perry pin-up girl” look. The new look for this spring/summer is all about the onesies and sweetheart necklines. Along with the influx of breezy dresses and jumpers in stores, I’ve been spotting the arrival of a warm-weather essential both anticipated and dreaded: the bathing suit. But despite what’s strutting down the runway in New York, the trend this spring isn’t about the “squint-and-you’ll-miss-it” bikinis, for once. Designers like Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Dolce & Gabbana all flaunted retro, pinup-girl-inspired swimwear: high-waisted bikinis, demure one-pieces, and skirted silhouettes.
Katy Perry isn’t only the latest pop princess to hit the airwaves; she may also be the next fashionista to follow. Twenty-three year old Perry’s single “I Kissed a Girl” seemed to be on every radio station (and now her new song “Thinking of You” is becoming very popular!) and the singer herself will soon be the centerpiece of many a fashion spread. Her vintage style has caught the eye of many established luxury-wear designers from always-fresh Betsey Johnson to the man himself, Karl Lagerfield; the long-time head designer of one fashion’s most luxurious brands, Chanel. Even before her songs were on the Internet, Betsey Johnson was into Perry, dressing her up for New York Fashion Week after seeing her appear in Betsey Johnson dress for a Women’s Wear Daily photo spread. Now, after being on the covers of countless magazines, Katy continues to pose and primp in her signature conglomeration of vintage finds and the latest 1940s-inspired fashions. Although many young people struggle to find their style, Katy has had her look for a while and it looks like it’s holding strong. (P.S. For all of you “Thinking of You” video fans, her amazing shoes are Italian label, Giambattista Valli and they are from a Los Angeles boutique called Diavolina.)
