Transcript of Fashion

Alexander McQueen
women use fashion to express themselves
I want a red dress.
I want it flimsy and cheap,
I want it too tight, I want to wear it
until someone tears it off me.
I want it sleeveless and backless,
this dress, so no one has to guess
what’s underneath. I want to walk down
the street past Thrifty’s and the hardware store
with all those keys glittering in the window,
past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old
donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers
slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly,
hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders.
I want to walk like I’m the only
woman on earth and I can have my pick.
I want that red dress bad.
I want it to confirm
your worst fears about me,
to show you how little I care about you
or anything except what
I want. When I find it, I’ll pull that garment
from its hanger like I’m choosing a body
to carry me into this world, through
the birth-cries and the love-cries too,
and I’ll wear it like bones, like skin,
it’ll be the goddamned
dress they bury me in.

Desire: she wants men to come to her begging to be with her.
More desire
Wants to hid the negatives about her (love is blindness)
Mask of beauty
This dress is made for her and will live with her.
"They're such beautiful shirts, she sobbed, her muffled in the folds. It makes me sad because I've never seen such beautiful shirts." -Daisy (Fitzgerald 98)
Fashion By: Lady Gaga

I need, some new stilettos
Can't walk, down the street in those
You are, who you wear it's true
A girl's just as hot as the shoes she choose
Summertime Sadness By: Lana Del Rey

I got my
dress on tonight
Dancing in the
in the
pale moonlight
Done my
hair up
big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive
