Some exciting new from fashionista.com:
A very pregnant Róisín Murphy will be performing live (with new material!) at the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris on Saturday. We are sure she will not disappoint and cannot wait to see how they outfit her.
"We are attracted and inspired by what we call mega-women: strong women who follow their own path and are uncompromisingly themselves," said the designers. "Róisín Murphy is a source of inspiration for us. We share with her the need for theatricality and performance in our work. Róisín personifies a power of transformation. On-stage she easily morphs into a beautifully fierce character, while off-stage she is the counterpart of her theatrical self: soft-spoken, modest, even quiet."
As for the singer: "I have been known to go to some extremes in my fashion choices but the Viktor & Rolf dress that I wore for my 'Overpowered' promotion had its own sound and lighting rig incorporated which tops them all."
This is a perfect pairing as far as we're concerned. And it sounds like it might be the kind of performance that makes Gaga a little jealous, non?
Roisin also said: "I am a huge fan of Viktor & Rolf, their designs encapsulate futuristic techniques and wry surrealism, the clothes are literally a thrill to wear. I find levels of story and concept in their work and have road tested many of their designs on stage. For my performances I am looking for clothing to amplify the often conflicting emotions in my own work. I want nothing to box me in as a performer, any notions of "chic" must be counterbalanced with humour and wit, intelligence comes with fearlessness and joy comes with the memory of pain. Being human is a complex business and that is exactly what I wish to reflect, even in the way I dress. These ideas are timeless and so are Viktor & Rolf."
After the show, Viktor & Rolf will upload a video of the performance on their official website!
