At first glance the 26 piece compilation has most of the hallmarks of a stand out Halpern collection. This exciting collaboration could be just the push we need from Topshop to move on from our 1990's Friends and Spice Girls hangover.
The VMAs are seeped in controversy and are one of the most high profile awards shows outside of ‘awards season’. Unforgettable events such as Lady Gaga’s 2010 meat dress, Madonna and Britney Spear’s infamous 2003 kiss and and MOST memorable - a drunk Kanye West interrupting a young Taylor Swift’s 2009 speech saying the best video award should have gone to Beyonce instead! This year the VMAs did not disappoint!
It is spreading that Beyonce is using her 'power' to implement her creative choices for September but I am dubious. I think that as we saw with Queen Elizabeth's political fashion choices and as I outlined in my post Fashion For Feminists, the fashion industry is being used as a portal for social change, and Beyonce is the ideal Vogue covergirl for this change.
