Hollywood infected your brain

I'm starting to become slightly obsessed with Americana. The whole jocks and cheerleaders thing, as well as the flag and stars and stripes patterned clothing. I think it comes from watching music channels a lot recently. The video for Hollywood by Marina and the Diamonds and Lady Gaga's Telephone both have flag themed outfits in them.



The Marina and the Diamonds video is a riot of red white and blue. It's basically Marina having a big party with various American icons (Marilyn Monroe and James Dean among others) and stereotypes, with streamers and banners and yeah, make sure you watch the video.


I've screen captured some of the best outfits. Also I couldn't get a good shot of it, but Marina has amazing stars and stripes nail art in the video. I think if I get my nails done at WAH nails again that's definitely what I'll be getting.



I haven't been able to find any flag-inspired clothing online (other than slightly slutty fancy dress costumes and some weird wedding dresses..) so I'm considering maybe buying a flag and making some kind of clothing out of that. But I'm not sure. I might just stick to the nails. What do you think?

  1. A riot alright! Right on, go Americana...so what if I'm a kiwi? There's only so much black on black with a dash of grey you can wear and the Union Jack with the 4 southern cross stars does not an exciting outfit make.
    Love Gaga, Love Marina...great screen grabs!
