how perfect does karen o look in this video? im obsessed. a few years back at a yyy concert her and nick walked right past me and i just about freaked out. i was stunned at how tiny she was! shes so amazing. i would kill for a leather jacket with my initials studded like that. so hot!
in hollywoodlife.net heres the article that featured the story behind her zero look:
So what's the story behind O's "Zero" look? In an email message, designer Christian Joy, the woman behind Karen's glorious attire, told us that the dress was made of clear plastic and PVC. "I wanted something a bit tougher and sexier. It also had to complement the jacket," Joy said. "I think that I've tried to create an overall different look for the new record and this look was a jumping off point."
And what of that sleek jacket, which features "KO" emblazoned across its back in studs? The designer said that it required around 3,500 of the metallic accoutrements. "I took a very long time to stud," Joy said. "We created it in my studio and each was put on one at a time."
Joy's Spring 2009 collection, which the designer said she wanted to be "clean and cool," features jumpers, zip-front dresses and, for a couple of pieces, a shrimp motif. "I brought back the shrimp because it's an image that I've played with for quite some time," Joy said. "Karen had a dress at one point around the Fever To Tell record that had a giant stuffed shrimp that hung around her neck."
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs return to the stage next month to play Coachella with The Cure and My Bloody Valentine. No word on whether we can expect any crustacean-inspired get ups.
