Odd Style Inspiration

No one is more surprised than me that I'm totally digging Britney Spears' video for 'Circus'. I've never had any strong feelings about Britney, besides feeling sorry for her when she went apeshit and shaved her head. She seems to be back on track (and likely heavily medicated) now and trying to do the comeback thing.

The aesthetic of the video is of course circus-inspired but it's also just pretty. There's a lot of nudes and washed-out creams accented with black. The diamonds are lovely though the product-placement is hokey. I love the curly, 1920s loose bob she sports for about half of the video. I'm totally going to do that more often! Basically, I'm baffled but amused by this style inspiration.

Also, watching it on mute is hilarious. So many gratuitous hair-flips and weird hand motions!
