Absolutely loving 'I'm So Beautiful' by Divine this morning. I've never really bothered with it before but I think I'm going to track down the 12" single over the weekend. What a tune.
I'm So Beautiful is the best Divine single! The chorus is massive.
I like to think Kylie was "inspired" for the Hand On Your Heart video by this...
Well Kylie was Kylie in 1989 so they did her version of that cool vibe dd. She wasn't ready yet.I do get what you mean by that, more so on other shoots, but if that’s what they were going for here I think they failed quite badly. Yazz and others were clearly always cool, these dresses with their matching colour shoes were just not it. She didn’t look even like a rip-off clubber, unless it was a club for 50’s housewives.
That wasn’t the styling Shazza was referring to, but I agree it was a miss.If only it had been! I’m almost willing to bet Hand On Your Heart was the video which the lovely stylist meant a couple of episodes back in the podcast. @SmashHitter She was talking about the styling of ”one recent video” having not been as good as what it should’ve been, and thus getting the chance to style a future video herself – which just happened to be Wouldn’t Change A Thing.
She was super nice and polite and didn’t want to shade anyone, bless her, but I recall how strange Kylie’s styling on Hand On Your Heart felt back in the day! Those heart dresses (aprons?) in different colours were a far cry from looking trendy or even youthful, not even when worn by an actual 20 (or so) year old, and the peculiar hair style straight from World War 2 era didn’t exactly help matters. The look might be considered cute now, sure, but those days it felt like a disaster. It really wasn’t what it should’ve been, she looked just… naff.

I distinguish between SAW, SW and SA (and then post-SAW PWL, like Steps is a whole other thing).Do the members of this thread consider a song to be a S/A/W song if “only” two of them are listed in the credits? I’ve been trying to build the ultimate playlist and want to respect whatever is canon.
Agreed...if she'd have teamed up the dress with Red or Dead style shoes/trainers, a bomber jacket and a better hairstyle she actually would've looked quite cool at the time!i thought the dresses were a cute rip off of what Yazz and acts like Bobby Brown were rocking? Clubby, Vivienne Westwood style.
