Viva Las Vegas 2013

 

It’s 6 shiny weeks until Viva Las Vegas – the world’s biggest rockabilly festival held in, er, Las Vegas, and I was revisiting pictures from the first time I went (2013) for style inspiration.

Viva Las Vegas is actually THE BEST thing I’ve ever been to. And even that is an understatement. It’s a 3 day party in the city of sin, with the most amazing clothes, music, cars, shopping and fun stuff to do. It’s like a hula party on crack – and I ADORE it.

Which is why it’s bizarre that I took some really goddamn awful pictures at the event. Like comedically bad. So I thought I’d share, along with explanations for my photographic decisions, which can mostly be explained by tequila. Prepare to be underwhelmed…..

????????????????????????????????????

Mia Klose is a singer, songwriter, artist and stylist. I’ve known her for years and back in the day we used to tear up the streets of Camden and Soho looking like extras from a Poison video. Actually more Motley Crue… but anyway, Mia is  lovely Swedish lady that has always had her own incredible look and approach to beauty/style. She’s always given zero fucks about trends and done her own thing – and I find that an endlessly admirable quality in a human. And she’s a killer singer too! So here she is, in her own words.

At Download festival last year I decided it would be mega lols to take two Cadbury Fingers – and stick them under my top lip. Hil-arious, I thought – I look like a walrus!Everyone guffawed so evidently my buffoonery must have paid off. The less funny part was being tagged on Instagram in a photo capturing that moment. Firstly, because it was shot from below, so I had about 56 double chins (that’s 112 actual chins) and secondly, because I literally saw the real me captured in one single moment. Basically, a massive goon. See…..

Thermal cutting. Like an excellent journalist, I didn’t really know what this (or thermal scissors) properly were before I plonked down in the stylists chair, though I knew it was a bit of a New York trend last year. Anyway – here’s the lowdown on what to expect….

WTF IS THERMAL CUTTING? 
Well, basically, you have your hair cut with these ‘hot’ scissors – they’re the Jaguar TC ThermoCut System should you give a fuck. When your hair is cut with regular scissors that leaves the cuticle open and can lead to damage and dryness (because moisturise/pollution etc can all get into the shaft.). These thermal scissors – in theory – warm the keratin protein in the hair, which seals the ends of the hair when it’s cut and that should ward off split ends and subsequent breakage. It also traps in moisture apparently! View Post
