Glam Rock, welcome back!

If anybody asked me which is the most popular trend right now, I would answer latex, PVC or lamé leggings.

But, where did the trend come from? Magazine editors claim that is inspired by the image of Dominatrix, while I am inclined towards Glam Rock.

An extract about Glitter Rock from Wikipedia:

"Performers distinguished themselves from the denim-clad hippie-hordes with sci-fi/Hollywood glamour/ambisexual-inspired costumes, which were perceived as glamorous by the press".

New York Dolls

Iggy Pop

What do you think about this trend? Do we all want to be glitter kids ?

Don't forget to turn on your loudspeakers, because from now on I'll try to connect each post with a song.

Today's song: Lust for life- Iggy Pop.

I agree with you allure, i also think it's glam rock def. :)
i couldn't wear those, i bet i would look ridiculous, but i actually find them cool and love to see those on rockers.
Did you see the photos of Kate Moss in this year's Glastonbury Festival, she was wearing ones :)
She is into all this rock star chick look right now and i guess they look cool on her!
great post :)
