Lovefoxxx: Inca-Lycra queen of the 00s

Rainbows, stripes, gold lamé, animal prints, nu-rave, new wave, thrift leotards stretched over generous curves, all-over face paint, mid-song costume changes, clouds, toilet seats, scrawled thunderbolt letters on arms and legs, yellow nail varnish, stagediving, drawn-on specs, Inca zig zags, black metal, lycra, sexxx appeal, death from above, shopping on the road...



Does anyone now doubt it? Luísa Hanaê Matsushita -- the carnal carnie and one-woman carnival float familiar to millions as Lovefoxxx -- is this decade's key dresser, standing to the wilder, hipper, wider, hippier side of the noughties as Björk Guðmundsdóttir did to the nineties. Quite frankly, nobody does it better because nobody else, this decade, has really been trying. Let it be entered in the annals of style in gold-ink roller biro -- this may not be what we looked like in 2008 (we didn't really dare!), but it's how we'll be remembered and revived.

I'm OK with that.
By the way, is it cool that I use this as an icon, Momus?

Sure, it's not my painting, just a snap I took at Supreme Trading in Billyburg.

I just wonder if a lot of this isn't on the costume side of the costume/fashion divide though....(obvious comment). M.I.A. wears a similar look, but more predictably. Which is a generalization.

Both Bjork and Lovefoxxx are alcoholics

Why do people find drinking fun?
I still remember I found adults drinking some bitter stuff stupid when i was 4, and now i m 18 and people around me always say drinking is fun. fun my ass. they are just too pathetic and thinks that they have to drink to give them license to release their emotions. Drinking is such a worthless social construct.

Anyone shares my view?

Both of them are awesome. And they drink alcohol AT TIMES.

I used to be exactly like you....Hating the taste of alcohol and wondering why people couldn't just release their emotions without it....But then I got drunk. and it was beautiful. i feel sorry for you for missing out!!! ♥ I am 18 also.

While I can certainly appreciate some of the costumes I can't get into this music at all. I wish this girl was a singer for a traditional South American music band. I used to think Dandi Wind had a lot of great costumes. I was really excited to hear her music,thinking it would match the wild clothes and make up. I was pretty disappointed when it revealed itself to be mundane electroclash shit with lyrics about George Bush. I like that gold bodysuit with the face on it. I can't stand it when people have "black metal" as an interest ironically either. Or when people but "Christian Rap" as their music genre on myspace.

Talking to people in bars in the hipster milieu, people actually seriously believe black metal is the last creative frontier in rock. Unfortunately, they're about 12 years too late.

I think she's cute... her style definitely adds to her appeal.

Their music isn't anything I'd listen to regularly, but I can imagine it would fun in a disco. More fun than house, anyway.

Oh, Momus... she's wearing MAKEUP!!!

Seriously, she's cute and kinda looks like my little sister. Don't think I'd want to go to a show, though.

it's much different to wear makeup that actually LOOKS like makeup and is obviously not intended to look natural, than to use makeup to "mimic" how you wish you'd look.
