This may be a bit of a redundant theme over the past 24 hours, but I just had to put my 2 cents in about the release of Lady Gaga’s new video “Alejandro.” She’s been doing outrageous for a while, but this is a step in a completely different direction of crazy and I have to love it for a number of reasons. The glitter has been replaced by latex, the colors substituted for harsh dark and light contrasts, and a blatant fetishistic theme clearly shows that we just might be coming out of the conservative slump we have been in for the past decade.
It’s things like this that give me hope that Danielle Nicole Metals will be able to thrive in the changing social climate without having to compromise aesthetic and thematic tendencies. The gap between fetish and fashion is quickly closing, and I’m so glad that I am able to get myself going at a time like this.
And speaking of my crazy work….
I’ve received 2 more lovely images from the shoot last week that can now be found on my website!
