personal sense of style

ASTROLOGY: who are you attracted to?

Most people think attraction has to do with sun sign. Everyone’s heard: “If you’re an Aquarius, date a Gemini or a Libra!” This is due to the fact that mainstream astrology does not consider other factors besides your sun sign, and most people believe this. But actually, this is not true, because most of the time sun-sun compatibility has little importance - no more than giving a general vibe that the relationship would give off. Instead, we should really focus on connecting energies between two charts. Read my post here about how compatibility really works.

Here are some common connections that indicate attraction between two people. It says that they must be in the “same sign”, but note that if the two placements are conjunct the bond is even more powerful.

SUN/MOON - 1st person’s sun in the same sign as the 2nd person’s moon:

  • both people feel like they’ve found their other half
  • the moon person looks up to the sun person
  • the sun person helps the moon person shine
  • there is an ease with each other that is very natural
  • both people “make sense” to each other
  • both have a similar attitude towards life

SUN/ASCENDANT - 1st person’s sun in the same sign as the 2nd person’s ascendant:

  • the two people are very similar
  • there are many common interests
  • they both view life in a similar way
  • the sun person likes the energy that the ascendant person naturally gives off
  • the ascendant person feels like they can be themselves with the sun person
  • self-expression is easy and harmonious together

MOON/MOON - having the same moon sign: 

  • this is a powerful, soulmate-like relationship
  • both people feel a sense of security
  • the other person feels “familiar” somehow
  • sharing feelings is easy and natural
  • both are very sensitive to each other’s feelings and needs
  • there is an intense emotional bond, sometimes overwhelmingly powerful
  • one can read the other like a book

MOON/ASCENDANT - 1st person’s moon in the same sign as the 2nd person’s ascendant:

  • both people feel understood by each other
  • the moon person feels at ease expressing their feelings
  • the ascendant person feels understood by the moon person
  • there is a natural emotional connection
  • both are aware of and receptive to the other’s feelings

ASCENDANT/ASCENDANT - having the same ascendant sign:

  • both people feel very comfortable with each other
  • both people sense a similarity in the way that they project themselves to the world
  • both have many shared values and similar attitudes
  • both are attracted to the other’s self-expression

SUN/VENUS - 1st person’s sun in the same sign as the 2nd person’s venus: 

  • the sun person is the venus person’s “type”
  • the sun person feeds off of the venus person’s love
  • both people give and receive much affection
  • the venus person values everything the sun person represents
  • the sun person appreciates the venus person’s expression

MOON/VENUS - 1st person’s moon in the same sign as the 2nd person’s venus:

  • the venus person makes the moon person feel comfortable
  • both care a lot for each other
  • both share a lot of values when it comes to a relationship

ASCENDANT/VENUS - 1st person’s ascendant in the same sign as the 2nd person’s venus:

  • the ascendant person embodies what the venus person finds attractive
  • the ascendant person appreciates the love the venus person gives
  • both are sensitives to each other’s needs and want to please each other

VENUS/VENUS - having the same venus sign:

  • both people are magnetically drawn to each other
  • there is an appreciation for each other’s personal style/aesthetic
  • both sense a similarity in each other’s romantic expression
  • both naturally understand each other’s romantic needs and satisfy them

VENUS/MARS - 1st person’s venus in the same sign as the 2nd person’s mars:

  • there is a sense of romantic chemistry
  • the venus person is attracted to how the mars person asserts him/herself
  • the mars person is attracted to the venus person’s charm and style

These are not the only indicators of attraction (there are many more involving asteroids or other points), but they are the most common ones involving personal planets. And also, having any of these connections does not guarantee a relationship will work out - they just give an indication of a strong connection between two people. There are both good AND bad sides to each of these connections, but here I’m showing the more positive side (meaning the reasons WHY you would feel the attraction in the first place). Having too many of these could potentially make a relationship overwhelming, while having only one might not be enough to keep a relationship going. It’s all about balance. :)

What I think of the MOON signs:

Aries: A lot of mental activity, thinking too much about what interests them. They could be intellectuals. They may appear calm on the outside, but a tornado is going on inside them. Optimistic, very competitive and impatient. They live for the moment, forgetting all else. That’s the reason they change their mind so easily about everything. Very curious, but opinionated. The Aries moon at it’s worst may blame things on others, unable to take responsibility. However, they don’t hold grudges and are usually kind and easygoing, wanting to do the right thing because they aim to live up to this ideal image they have of themselves, whatever that ideal is. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: not everyone is out to get you, enjoy yourself, RELAX!! and don’t let your need to be the best, even when you are, poison yourself and your relationships. Celebrities with this moon: Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Sarkozy, Bill Gates, Rihanna.

Taurus
: Charming, very charming. Has a great sense of humor and loves companionship. They will tell you stories, they will make you feel warm. They may not take criticism well, but who does? They do not like to be rushed into things, they like stability and comfort even when being adventurous. They may enjoy shopping too much. Ruled by Venus, they are romantic and affectionate in love, sometimes possessive, and they chose love over friendship. Depending on the Sun and Venus, this moon can be extremely jealous. But wishing to keep balance they will hide it under a passive aggressive attitude which can cause more wrong than right. They look for the best in people and usually will find themselves giving too much, but their desire to maintain balance will help them stay on track. They look more reasonable than they are. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: keep shining, but don’t be so proud. Not everything is like you see it. Sometimes it’s OK to fuck up and admit it. Celebrities with this moon: Christina Aguilera, Cameron Diaz, Mother Teresa, Chris Brown, Jim Morrison.

Gemini: Absent minded? You bet! However they compensate that through their wit and curiosity. They are versatile and easy going. Even on the least easy going suns a Lunar Gemini will ease up the chart. They mean well, I do believe this, mostly because they are not interested in what other people are doing. They do not get caught up in gossip and do their own thing. They can be irritable and moody, but not usually. They are lazy even though they want to have a hand on everything! They have so much they want to do, but their minds go faster than their power of will. They are nervous thought, and if they have a problem they may not know how to act upon it and feel paralyzed. Gemini moons are fun and very chill. At their worst, Lunar Geminis can be very cold and indifferent. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: you are capable of anything if you work! You are not alone… And look around more, be warmer. Celebrities with this moon sign: Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Alyssa Milano, Jennifer Lawrence.

Cancer: are cancers tired of hearing they are emotional? Yes, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Cancer, as a moon sign, is powerful because the moon is the realm of emotions. Being emotional doesn’t mean weak, on the contrary, a Cancer moon has to be strong to be able to feel as they do. And Cancer moons are indeed strong. They are tender and sweet, and a roller coaster of emotional outbursts. They are in touch with their feelings, so much so, sometimes they get too caught up in them, becoming self-absorbed as if their own emotions are the only emotions that matter. What’s the problem with this? That if they are feeling pain they tend to forget the good things in their life and instead of trying to get better, the get lost in self-pity. They have a good memory and a soft heart, even when you least expect it. They do not do well with criticism, they do not take jokes lightly. They love, they love a lot, even through their mood swings. And find it hard to let go. Do not take this moon sign for granted, they are loyal AF. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: you need to act more and build the future instead of clinging to the past. Celebrities with this moon sign: Taylor Swift, Kurt Cobain, Keanu Reeves, Shakira.

Leo: This moon is outgoing and bright. Yes they need attention, yes they love flattery, yes they can be overly dramatic and yes, as the Leo they are, they do think highly of themselves. And that’s part of the reason they are so successful, they are confident and know they are more than capable of handling anything. They truly are more than capable. They are proud, but have qualities to back it up, and you can’t hate them because they are loving. All that they have for an Ego they have for a heart. They need a lot of love and even though they know they are great, they want to hear it. If you want to cheer them up, genuinely tell them the good qualities you see in them or let them win at a game they love. This is a nice moon to hang around with, a romantic moon, a quick to anger moon, and a moon that won’t try to hurt you, unless you stand in their way. They can be dramatic and get this, they hate drama. They love the whole “nobody loves me” and slamming doors, but oh boy! they‘ll think you are crazy if you act like them. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: yes, we love you, but do not act so dramatic! Celebrities with this moon sign: Julia Roberts, Mahatma Gandh, Monica Bellucci, Tom Cruise.

Virgo: yes, this whole post was about my perception on the moon signs, but I must warn you I am especially biased about this one… I’ve met so many Virgo moons! Many people I love have Virgo Moons! (I am a Virgo rising myself) And I love them, but we crush. All Virgo moons I have come in contact with were and are… way too… critical. They don’t seem to know you have feelings. They will say nasty comments about your personality, hobbies, clothes… but will get angry at the slightest thing you say to them, and they will over-think it for ages. For even though they are hard on others, they are hard on themselves as well. They do not realize their own defects. However, once they do, they will try to correct them. They also say the good stuff… but not so often. They are sharp and they love a good debate. These people are smart and may involve themselves in jobs that allow them to help humanity. They are not mean or petty, just critical and defensive because they want to make things perfect and be perfect (perfect from their point of view). If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be… yes, you guessed! Watch your words, they cut. No, you are not always right and you don’t need to be. And not because you don’t like something does it mean it’s wrong. Celebrities with this moon sign: Madonna, Dalai Lama, Nicki Minaj, Sean Connery.

Libra: Another very charming moon sign, but unlike their sun sign, the Libra moon person is more secretive. They love love. They are very romantic, it can break their heart. They want to be liked and do not enjoy arguing and outbursts of emotion. They can be superficial and vain, but they are also sweet and peace oriented. They are dreamy, calm, they want to open up, they have a lot in their minds, more so then what they are willing to share. They can be extravagant - for some reason - and quiet. They have a dark side: they can get caught up in their negative emotions but never share it with the world. They might be artsy, bohemian, and proudly so, and they all have a personal sense of style. Whatever they are inside- hippie, hipster, painter, lawyer - they will dress to show it. You can tell a lot about these people from their clothes. They might not be terribly steady in love, sometimes they fall for too many people at once. If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be: there is more than what meets the eye, there’s more than looking for others approval. Celebrities with this moon sign: Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber, Kate Winslet, Jude Law.

Scorpio: This moon is sensual and dark, this moon wants passion, this moon is romantic and is not afraid of commitment! This moon wants loyalty and is loyal. They are dramatic, very dramatic, like a Leo moon, but without the bright disposition. They are egocentric and at the same time, giving. They hold grudges, but if they love you, you won’t need any reassurance because they will be there showing you. They are hot headed and domineering, they like to feel in control. They are jealous and fear betrayal. They will not put up with your bullshit for too long. They have a strong will and they will get where they want to in life. Do not mess with them. They will not take revenge, but they will not forgive you. They feel a lot, and also expect a lot from others. If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be: chill, chill, chill. Not everything is about you, trust a little more, lighten up! You will be glad you did. Celebrities with this moon sign: Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry.

Sagittarius: This moon is curious, careless, optimistic and has a childlike manner to it. They look chill to others. They talk quickly, and are a bit impatient. They are naive, afraid of commitment and dislike restrictions. They need space and personal freedom to be happy. They are carefree and may not always be in tune with others emotions, sometimes they are oblivious to how others feel. They will be there if you open up, but may not be the most empathetic of ears. If things get tough, they will run away. They like to do research and could do well in this area, thanks to their curiosity. They want to explore the world and meet new people, they like talking and can get irritated easily. If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be: Sometimes grounding yourself is needed, sometimes you see more by looking within than by avoiding quietness. It is OK to sit with oneself, don’t avoid things out of fear of working through the rough parts. Celebrities with this moon sign: Albert Einstein, Nicole Kidman, Sharon Stone, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Capricorn: this moon is closed up. This moon needs to feel productive and they measure their worth through their ability to get somewhere in life. They want money and material things and YET they will cultivate a spiritual side. This moon worries about everything. A woman (or a person with feminine energy) with this moon is loyal and stable, a man (or person with masculine energy) with this moon sign, however, finds it hard to be with one woman because they do not know how to be vulnerable. They have will power and emotional strength, they will give you everything you need if you ask - you’d have to ask as they do not know what people need. This moon cares about their style as well, like the Libra moon, this moon dresses up for the job they want, as they say. They like shopping. They can also be alone for long periods of time, they do not mind being in their room all day. Something most people do not expect of this moon sign is their high sexual drive! They can be very kinky and like to sleep around. This moon is cautious, and doesn’t take risks. They like to know the outcome and will think of all the possibilities before rushing into things. If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be: oh, you, it’s ok to be vulnerable. If you never open up, you will miss your life. Take risks, maybe not always, but do not let love pass you by because of fear. Celebrities with this moon sign: Amy Winehouse, Adolf Hitler, Johnny Depp, Napoleon.

Aquarius: what a witty moon to have. In my opinion, this position makes a person fast, goofy and brainy. They are detached and bubbly, they look not as smart as they truly are. They like attention, but will not give it to you! They are aloof. They care about facts, though. They call it the Aquarian Age for a reason. They want to know things, but will not argue with you if you do not see things as they do. They like to keep their emotions to themselves and do not like to be serious. So maybe, listening to others talking about their problems is not their strength. They just want to chill! If a sarcastic comment is what you need, go talk to them. They care about history and humanity, they want to make a difference. If I had to give some advice to this moon it would be:: care about people a little more, ok? They might need you as much as you need them. Celebrities with this moon sign: Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, John Lennon, Conan O'brien.

Pisces: Yes this moon sign is the most compassionate and empathetic of all the moon signs. This moon is psychic, and will know how you are feeling even better than you. They can easily feel overwhelmed by the harsh demands of this world and, at their worst they can turn to drugs or other ways to escape reality. However, they are funny, goofy and optimistic, they live in their dream world and seem to be in a far away land. Even though they can be masochistic, and can be a pushover, this moon sign sees everything and everyone with rose colored glasses, including their future. They think everything will be alright even if death is right in front of them, they will think they are dating a kind person even if they find them cheating on them every Saturday. They are indeed innocent, gullible, but what most people do not know about this moon sign is that once they see you for you, there is no way back. They put people they love on pedestals, but if you fall, it will be hard for them to put you up there again. Which is not a bad thing, it is better not be on a pedestal anyway. However, the problem is, when they get betrayed or hurt, they start to think the worst of people. They will not revenge, but maybe they won’t let you back into their life, they are afraid to be vulnerable. It is easier for them to be there for others than to be there for themselves and show the world all the messy they are inside. They feel guilty over everything and even though they care about people a lot, sometimes they have trouble showing it. If I had to give some advice to this moon sign it would be: love yourself more, take care of yourself and do not be a doormat. And stop the self-pity. Celebrities with this moon sign: Michael Jackson, Michelle Obama, Martin Luther King, Elvis Presley.

VANESSA J AS BLUE SARGENT
I’m a lover of books and The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series of all time I AM OBSESSED!
~
I was planning on recreating a scene from the book but then I found out they were making the series into a tv series…I flipped out when I heard this because I am excited and nervous. Mostly because I’m worried that I wouldn’t get a chance to audition for Blue.
Tiny resume: I’ve been performing for 11 years, I’ve been in theatre competitions where I won best in show at district level and straight superiors at state level, and I am in the international theatre thespians society.
I hate talking about myself like that but it is to show that I am experienced in acting!
~
Blue and I both have a different sense of style, and strong personalities. I was hoping that I could get the support from the fandom because it would break my heart if I don’t get a chance to at least audition for a character I love and relate to deeply.

When you and the boo are just lounging and you still look fuckin good

aka Portrait of Two Fly Honeys, Caitlin Farmer (2015)

~Gift for @anaussieintheusa, who requested mah girls March and April~

(My main reference for March was Amber Heard and my main reference for April was Rihanna. Do with that what you will.)

Here’s a silly one. Rank Katie’s roles in terms of hawtness (@rtracker).

Alrighty. This killed me, because personally, I would just choose them all. Can’t I just have them all??? It was almost as difficult as having to decide which character I would date (a high point in my life), so thanks for that! But first I had to consider my criteria for Maximum Hawtness™. It was necessary. I mean we all know Katie is gorgeous and hot af no matter what. So instead I had to consider things beyond Katie’s perfect face.

Sooo personal style, attitude, the way she carries herself, innocence vs. …naughtiness? Sauciness? Can that be a thing? Sure! Oh, and chemistry and interactions with other characters. That’s a big one. Leaving out the usual characters. So here is my list.

1. Kate Foster (But of course!)

Pretty sure a lot of you have seen me freak out about Kate. When it comes to judging hawtness, I am all for the sharp and pointy. When did the question of wanting fries cause anyone to become uncomfortably aroused?? When Kate Foster asked the question, that’s when! Kate is smooth, seductive and she spends pretty much her entire date with Erica looking like she is ready to rip her clothes of with her teeth. …Yeah that’s pretty hot. Bonus points for the lingering touches and the sex hair the morning after. #shooketh

2. Lena Luthor

Originally posted by luthorial

The perfect combination of sharp and pointy and soft and squishy. There is definitely something about her that has drawn so many in. The heart-eyes, the perfect buns, the eyebrows, the lip-bite, the red lipstick… Then there is the fact that she dresses like she’s on her way to view the next big line during fashion week (That Magenta Coat™ tho). Speaking of the lip biting, heart-eyes, and eyebrows, is it me or is Lena more flirty than pretty much all of Katie’s characters combined? Throw all of that on top of the fact that she is an angel and classy af and you can just consider me deceased.

Pssst. If you are for any reason interested in more of Katie being hot and/or my somewhat warranted opinion/endless thirst, keep reading! Ok let’s move on.

Hi This is Tony Padilla.  

You can adjust whatever sound system or format you are listening this to. And by “you” I think I only mean one person.

Don’t worry Clay.

This isn’t like the first set.

I am not trying to be disrespectful.

I think Hannah gave me the courage to do a lot of things.

Mainly, she made me realise I wanna be honest. Honesty matters but so does the truth.

If she could pour her heart out

I wanna as well

these are the 9 reasons why to…well, you will hear it at the end of the tape. Don’t worry. I am not doing anything.

ur art is so cute omg!! howd u form this art style??

(( loads of practice from years and years of drawing but the basic equation is

im self taught and theres not just one inspiration theres many even tho i cant draw past the shoulders but im still learnin ))

Voltron

I think it would be really cool for Team Voltron to go on a diplomatic mission in Altean finery, formal clothing like Coran and Allura’s. It would be really cool to see the different out fits everyone would wear and you could get more of a sense for their personal styles than you when they wear the same god damn outfit everyday.

I wish, I really wish, that people would learn the difference between “sexual” and “provocative.”

Something that is provocative elicits a “sexy” idea without being outright sexual. Tight pants are provocative; ass-less chaps are sexual.

Normally it doesn’t matter if we use these words interchangeably, but when it comes to things like Yurio’s “Welcome to the Madness” skate, it helps to know the difference. I don’t think this is going to stop the antis from getting their bloomers in a bunch, but maybe it’ll help other people realize that there’s nothing wrong with Yurio’s performance, appreciating the aesthetic, or acknowledging the arousing effects it could have on Otabek.

I mean, first of all, when we talk about the issue of sexualizing teenagers in media, it is, more often than not, in the context of sexualizing teenage girls, and this is largely because of the omnipresence of sexualized girls and women in media contributing to the sexualization of girls and women in real life. This is a big part of rape culture, and why we fight so hard for the representation of women in media where they are not sexualized or treated as sex objects. I’m not saying that there isn’t a problem with sexualizing teenage boys (assumptions of hypersexuality in boys and men is a whole other can of worms), but I am saying that a teenage boy faces far fewer unwanted sexual advances due to what he wears or how he acts. Having a teenage boy perform a provocative piece in media does not have the same repercussions as having a teenage girl do the same. (This isn’t to say that you’re not allowed to find it uncomfortable, but you have to recognize that they are your personal feelings, and the piece itself does not actually contribute to a larger problem.)

That said, even when we rail against the sexualization of women and girls, we do so because the sexualization is either unnecessary, or it’s the entirety of the character. We absolutely recognize that women and girls have a right to be sexual and wear provocative clothing if they want to, but creators tend to handle it so badly that we implore them to stop altogether (until they can figure out how to do it right).

Yurio’s performance is neither unnecessary nor is it the sole aspect of his character. From his introduction, he’s stated that he wants to do more mature pieces, he’s shown distaste over his “innocent” image, and he’s been genuinely pleased when he’s taken seriously as an adult. He wanted to do “Eros” from the start, and his free skate was built around showcasing his physical maturity as a skater. He desperately wants to shed the “kitten” and “fairy” image - he moved up from Juniors to Seniors as soon as he could (15 is the youngest you can be in seniors, but you can stay in juniors until you turn 19), he’s loud and brash and assertive, and he jumps at any change to prove that he’s not a child anymore. He’s getting to the point where he can take control of his life and his skating, and it’s pretty clear that he wants to stop being infantilized. He’s desexualized, to the point of dehumanizing him (“fairy” and “kitten” and even “ice tiger” remove his humanity; they seek to name him as something “other” and so it’s easier to ignore that he is a growing, maturing young man with his own thoughts and feelings and desires). So it absolutely makes sense that he would take the opportunity to use his exhibition skate as a chance to exhibit himself as a sexually mature adult. He is not “Russian Fairy” or “Kitten” - he is Yuri fucking Plisetski, and he will damn well be provocative if he wants to.

“Welcome to the Madness” isn’t some frivolously pornographic fanservice - it’s an actual effort to show Yurio as he sees himself: as an adult, as a sexual human being, as a person with a dark and radical sense of style. It’s his chance to debut himself without having to worry about jumps or scores or adhering to an aesthetic he no longer enjoys (if he ever enjoyed it at all - I can personally see Otabek’s “eyes of a soldier” observation as a hint that, since he was little, Yurio was determined to do what he needed to do to get where he wanted to be, regardless of how he felt about it). Otabek gets to be a part of this because Otabek has always seen Yurio as he is. Yurio was never “fairy” or “kitten” to him, and for somebody that has had to live with that typing because of his looks and his particular abilities, he greatly appreciates that Otabek looks past all of that and sees the truth of Yurio.

I honestly believe that Yurio would be fucking pissed at everybody trying to shame his performance, trying to desexualize him, trying to shove him into the “innocent” box. Ship or don’t ship Otayuri, but recognize that Otabek is, so far, the only person in Yurio’s life that has explicitly stated that he sees Yurio as a mature adult, and admires him for it. Otabek, an 18-year-old, sees Yurio, a 16-year-old, as his peer, his equal, and this is a hugely supportive and healthy aspect of their relationship - not because Otabek is sexualizing Yurio, but because Otabek is allowing Yurio to take control of his image on his own terms, and is supporting him in that endeavor.

“Welcome to the Madness” is a provocative piece, yes, and it’s meant to be. Because Yurio wants to be able to be provocative. But it’s not sexual. That is, as far as we’ve seen of it, nothing about it is euphemistic of sexual acts. He is showing off his body and his flexibility in a way that is sexy, and that’s the point, and he’s allowed to do that. That’s part of bodily autonomy. If you find it arousing, that’s all on you, because the piece wasn’t meant to be titillating fanservice, it was meant to be showcasing a young man taking charge of himself, his body, and his image as a skater. You don’t get to shame the creators for recognizing that a 16-year-old boy deserves bodily autonomy and the right to dress and skate how he wants.

Is Korean Actress Sulli the Cutest Girl in the World?

Fashion-forward celebrities abound, but few have a look as adorable as Sulli, the model-actress-singer and former member of girl group f(x). Known for her K-Pop beginnings and roles in onscreen comedies such as Fashion King, she’s developed a loyal following as a performer. She’s managed to craft a distinctive sense of personal style in the process, one that avoids many of the obvious trendy trappings that come with being a young celebrity. Though she only just turned 22, you won’t find the usual lineup of athleisure, logo hoodies, and sneakers in Sulli’s wardrobe. Even when she goes casual, she does so with sweet pieces that offer a playful twist on the traditional. Instagramming herself in Breton sweaters worn with vintage Chanel scarves, cropped denim flares paired with kitten heels, and an array of pattern-heavy pieces in vibrant colors, she proves that chic is more about attitude than It items.

On the red carpet, Sulli applies the same rules, preferring florals and frills to edgier fare–even when it means making a few styling changes. Case in point? The quilted leather bodice she wore beneath a sheer Christian Dior gown to a store event for the French house back in February. No matter the occasion, you can count on her to be extra cute even when that means poking fun at herself. She accessorized her bright red trench coat with a layered red velvet cake—what else!—for a series of birthday posts on Instagram this past week. Pouting and posing her way through the celebration, she provided followers with a series of twee updates and fashion fans with another enviable outfit.

This is a PSA for those of you that don’t already know...

I AM ABSOLUTE TRASH FOR DACRE MONTGOMERY and there is plenty of room here in my little dumpster blog for more peeps. Stop by. Let’s chat about how amazing Dacre is. We can discuss about anything about him. 

Like how unreal his eyes are… 

His stunning smile…

His very fashion-forward sense of style…

His fun and inviting personality…

His kind and endearing soul…

or the adorable way he says

(x)

Isn’t his accent the best?!?

Emma used to be a funny character. Now? She has no humor anymore. No humor, no sense of style, no compassion, no independence, no personality, no nothing. All she talks and cares about is Hook. She barely has any scenes with her family (that one she'd willingly give away if it meant to save Hook, a man who abused her, who constantly manipulates and lies to her, and who tried to murder THAT same family), and when she does, those involve nothing but Hook. She's become dull, desperate and pathetic.

Literally everything you said is 100% fact. How useless. How pathetic. How drab. I don’t even know her anymore, there’s no character there.

Remember when she used to have her own life and her own stories? Yeah I barely do too. That was like…what? Four seasons ago? Hmph. 

Brendon Urie's Stylist on the Panic! at the Disco Singer's Colorful Tailormade Style: Exclusive

For Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie, the embrace of “emo” spans at least a decade. But thanks to stylist Anthony Franco, the band is changing its tune, donning a new, colorfully clad style.

The self-taught designer and stylist first cut his teeth in the ‘80s and '90s dressing Janet Jackson, Boyz II Men and Lauryn Hill and outfitting MC Hammer for his “2 Legit 2 Quit” video. “When you come from making clothes for stars, you can’t give it up, which is why I like working with Panic!,” Franco tells Billboard in an exclusive interview.

After being introduced to the Las Vegas-bred group through their Nothing Rhymes With Circus tour director – who Franco worked with while styling Fall Out Boy – it was a match made in sartorial heaven. “I just threw a whole bunch of stuff in my bag from working on films like Waterworld and X-Men, made a bunch of sh–, met the boys, and they were like, 'We love you,’” he recalls. “They were babies, 17 to 20 years old, and I was already in my 30s, but from that point on, I became really close with them and have literally done every single thing with the band and Brendon since.”

How would you describe Brendon’s style?

The thing I love about the band is they’re from Vegas, so they kinda had a Rat Pack vibe with emo elements to them. With all groups, it’s the singer who usually has their individual style, and Brendon will wear anything I ask him to. He trusts me, and that’s a big thing; when an artist does not allow their stylist or creative team to help them create an image, a lot of times it looks like it’s forced. Personally, I can’t think of anyone out there with his sense of style. He loves his shiny fabrics, has stage presence, and to me, he’s always been a one-man show. He does take over, and the fans love it, and it’s great.

He seems to be a big fan of colorful and patterned tuxedo jackets, along with high-collar shirts. Is that your influence? 

Yeah, the high-collar thing came about when we were doing the “Hallelujah” video, where it’s a play on clergymen in a confessional. Instead of doing the band in collars – which is a direct reference to priesthood – we implemented that element into the shirts by raising the collar up. I love how Karl Lagerfeld dresses with his collars, so that’s what we go for. It gives an emperor’s look as opposed to looking like a preacher.

What about the colorful and patterned tuxedo jackets?

This started around the '05 Vaudeville eyeliner emo look, but I began noticing that the clothing started to elevate itself with shine and color. I wasn’t so nervous about it since I knew Brendon could pull it off, but it was also something that nobody at the time was doing, and it sort of came across as really Liberace. To avoid looking like a Vegas lounge singer, his fit had to be perfectly tailored and custom-made. I didn’t want to just throw him in clothing that we had to alter but didn’t work for him. As his stylist, I want to make sure that every time he’s out there performing or on the red carpet, he looks different, but it’s still his style.

Is there a pattern or color Brendon wouldn’t wear?

I don’t know if I would ever put him in plaid. I like textures, and leopard works perfectly for him. I think there is not a color now that we haven’t used. That’s why when we did the Grammy red carpet, we went for a clean slate with the white tux with silver thread in it and a fattened collared shirt (exclusive sketch below). Kind of like [Grammy-nominated best rock album] Death of a Bachelor, where a bride wears white. We flew in the shiny fabric from London, and I made the full look (tux, pant and shirt) within a week, because I have his pattern down perfectly. That’s fast for us, but with him, I don’t like to do things with too much of a lead time because we’re so creative we might change our minds. His fans love him, and it’s nice when they get in really close and can spot a new detail within that look.

What influences Brendon’s style the most: comfortability or design interest?

Since he’s an active performer, his pants have a little stretch in them, and his shoes have to be super comfortable. But up top, he will wear anything. I also have to be aware of sweating because he’s performing, so I will never use wool. He’ll start the show looking head-to-toe perfect and will start stripping stuff off, and before you know it, he ends up shirtless. [Laughs] For him, I think it’s really about a full look at the beginning, and then he’ll sort of taper down to get himself into it. For the red carpet, he wants to look perfect from head-to-toe.

When it comes to fashion, what excites Brendon?

He’s interesting because we know it’s the element of dress-up, and he knows that people love him for his music and his clothing. He gets inspired by fashion and is not an off-the-rack kind of guy. Brendon will never follow a designer just because everyone else is following a trend. It’s dress-up, but it’s not a costume nor gimmicky.

Brendon @brendonurie looks so good at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards - he’s wearing a custom Diamond White Tuxedo–We’ve done almost every color in the rainbow – This shining beauty is definitely one of my favorites. #brendonurie #panicatthedisco #grammys

How do you keep it from looking gimmicky?

The good thing is, with well-made clothing; it never looks cheap. And we put a lot into making sure the fit of the fabric and details are expensive, a.k.a. well-thought-out and -executed.

When he’s not performing, what does Brendon gravitate towards?

He’s all casual. Jeans, T-shirt, a hoodie and Adidas sneakers. He is straight-up comfort. 

Even at nighttime?

Oh yeah, he would never dress up to go to dinners and stuff like that. That persona of him is strictly  onstage.

What is your most memorable styling moment with Brendon?

His light-blue jacket with leopard T-shirt from his last tour. A couple, who met at a Panic! concert and eventually got married, sent a photo of their baby dressed up for Halloween in a leopard shirt and blue onesie jacket over it. It was so damn cute, and when fans start re-creating his looks, it’s flattering for us. The most incredible moment was when Brendon met President Obama after performing at the Kennedy Center Honors in a gorgeous bronze tuxedo, which we custom designed. It photographed beautifully, and I felt so proud to see my work on him while meeting the president. 

 

One of my favorite fashion moments - Brendon @brendonurie & Sarah @sarahurie at the Kennedy Center Honors 2013, both look so stunning wearing my designs. #love #friends
