Can you believe it? This is the second-last week of The Voice: the third season is not over yet, and I already miss Christina’s weekly appearances on tv. I’m excited to see what will come next in her career, but I’ll surely feel the void. But now it’s time to put sadness aside and to see what she wore yesterday, when the final four artists (two from Team Cee-Lo and two from Team Blake) performed live.
Now THIS is a look to die for! As my Twitter friend Jessica noticed, she looked like a modern Alex DeLarge, the charismatic protagonist of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971), who notoriously wore a bowler hat as part of his trademark outfit. In the movie the bowler hat, symbol of the most conservative part of British society, appeared among the symbols of a cultural revolution, ruled by senseless violence and lack of any morals. I think Christina is a fan of the movie by Kubrick: you may remember she dressed up as Alex at her birthday party in 2008. I love everything about this look, especially her make-up (her signature red lips are back!). Her heart-themed fan by Dengra Designs created a nice contrast with the black and white outfit.
The whole look is based on the contrast of black and white: her Stella & Jamie sleeveless dress, for example, feature a black and white striped front panel and a houndstooth panel on the back.
The same embellishment – diamond pavé – can be found in another ring (round, this time) she wore. Her bowler hat is made of 100% wool felt: it’s the Laurel derby hat by New York Hat Co.
Unfortunately her shoes were not visible, but she wore Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
What do you think of this outfit? The dress seems a bit confused (mixing and matching different patterns is always a risk), but I really loved the rest of the outfit. Now I’m looking forward to seeing what she has in store for tonight’s show.
