Dig this! I was watching The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last night, marvelling at the amazing, over the top designs, and the fierce walks on these ladies, not to mention Heidi Klum who had a baby five weeks before the show. I watch mainly to see the outlandish seven foot tall wings, and we didn't get quite enough of those this year. However, then these came down the runway, and I said, "Holy crow, that's steampunk!" Gears, cogs, clock hands, Roman numerals from a clock face--it's definitely steampunk. My favorite look of the evening.
Steampunk has hit mainstream. Well, with a push-up corset bra and butterflies, but still pretty steamy, huh?
