When English trapeze artist-turned-singer Neon Hitch stopped by VH1 today to premiere her new “Love U Betta” video on Big Morning Buzz Live, we were soooo happy she’d agreed to pose for Style Seen. This is a girl who seems just as comfortable in green feathers as the rest of us are in sweats. Of course, we were also excited to watch her interview on the show, in which the bubbly pop star discussed her early life on the road in a trailer (or, as she calls it, a caravan), which was the subject of a fascinating BBC doc; what it was like to live with Amy Winehouse for two years, and how she and Ke$ha wrote “Blah Blah Blah” on her bed, drinking whiskey. But yeah, back to those feathers:
They were initially meant to be a Mohawk-style headdress, “but that’s not my style,” Neon explained. So she improvised and sewed it into her jeweled corset.
The corset was actually part of a two-piece outfit, but she mixed it up with a jaguar-printed, hip-hugging skirt from Opening Ceremony.
“I was going for a kind of jungle-y spring vibe today,” Neon said. And she continued that with her nails.
“Everybody who wants dope nails, you have to go to Valley,” she advised. Duly noted, Neon. Now can you explain to us how to “sex” a guy’s brain?
