Flashback Friday: Culture Club – “Karma Chameleon”
Well folx, it’s been a crazy week, and I’m thrilled I made it to Friday more or less intact. So, to celebrate, I’ve got another offering for you in my ongoing exploration of music videos with historical costume content. You really can’t beat 1980s music videos when it comes to wacky interpretations of historical costume, after all.
So, sit back and let the art wash over you.
Bring on the parasols, the teased hair, and the lack of bustles, I’m here for it!
The gents are all gentlemanly.
I love Boy George, I don’t care what you say. He’s perfect. I have low-key wanted to be him since I was about 6 years old.
OH THE HAIR IS SO PAINFUL. That bodice, though, shows some real potential.
OH THANK GOD THE SHOW GIRLS AND THE MARCHING BAND HAVE ARRIVED. I was really worried the party was going to suck without them.
That blue plaid number is actually really nice. There’s a couple of shots of it throughout the video but I couldn’t get a clear screen grab of her standing up other than this one.
“OH NO, I JUST REALIZED I WORE A 1770s GOWN, NOT 1870s!” <– I have 100% had this nightmare before.
Would loving you be easy if your colors were like my dreams? Tell us in the comments!
