When I look at celebrities, I hate to see that people follow the trends of the unhealthy ones such as Victoria Beckham and Paris Hilton. Leading to anorexia and drug habits. But then I am happy to see people like David Bowie, Bjork and Lady Gaga in the public eye. People with a difference, people that dont follow a strick norm!!!
I find Lady Gaga incredible and a big inspiration, she's beautiful and not afraid to be different. Plus she does it because - that's who she is! She doesn't care about the media spotlight (okay she does because she has a huge obsession with fame) but she wears the clothing because fashion, and uniqueness is what interests her. She's showing children that are going through what i may have gone through and what she went through, that's its actually okay to let out you inner freak... Because - There's one in many people, and we should be afraid to let it out. Why should we be afraid? Because people will bully us... Well fuck that? Where the hell will they get in life... Nowhere - Have some bloody creativity!!
I wish there was someone eccentric to look up to when I went through that stage. She may be crazy - but i think shes a fantastic role model, granted i wouldn't wear a lot of the things she does. But she doesn't necessarily do it to be provocative. She wears items from designers like: Versace, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. But she also creates her own. She does it for an artistic affect. And its beautiful, and creative. Art is subjective after all, so not everyone gets it. And as I've mentioned him, I must say, the death of Alexander McQueen came as a great shock to me. He was a man not afraid to dare to be different. And his creations were amazing!!! With all his dramatic designs, its not a surprise that he won the British Designer of the Year award. Luckily we still have people like Vivienne Westwood, Tarina Tarantino and Betsey Johnson... Who i LOVE!!!
So, why conform? Whats the point? Don't fear things that are peculiar, strange or different, Embrace it and just accept it. Because, your not the same as everyone else... Think about it more and you with realise, you have differences too!
