Today's fashion as seen in music videos will become the historical fashion documents of the future. People will study these videos to gain a sense not only of our fashion directions but who we are right now as a culture. As we look on and sing along for entertainment lets also explore the messages within the fashion styling.
Love the Way You Lie - Eminem ft. Rihanna - Not only is this a passionate video about the other side of love but all throughout the video we are reminded about how we label fashion to coincide with our love passions. Eminem wears a sleeveless t-shirt/Undershirt ironically called a wife beater and Rihanna sports a pair of leather fingerless gloves used for wrestling and boxing. This is the true elements of styling in a music video. This fashion completes and complements the videos message.
International Love - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown - Globe trotting Pitbull and Chris Brown run through this video in front of many green screens transitioning between continents. All the while wearing what look like Gucci or Prada aviators. These glasses suggest a luxury lifestyle of travel and mystery. Excellent fashion styling.
Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez - This young singer takes us through the entire video looking like she is straight out of the 1980's Very Donna Summer and very techno hippies. The amount of costume changes is hard to keep up with but she does the genre of musical fashion style justice. She touches on the B-52's and Belinda Carlyle as well as Max Headroom.
