This pageant marked the end for me in the regards of my participation in them, so it was particularly fun for me. As a trainer, I can’t enter them anymore, and while I won’t miss the stress, I will miss the chance to compete. I’m a natually competitive person! I’m a sagittarius 😉
Because the themes were our RL birth year, I had to go with Madonna as my inspiration. I also had a great deal of fun making our announcer Taby talk like an 80’s valley girl! See my creative note and see what I mean 😉
Like, Ok. So like this event is a celebration of the past year and like a tribute to our calendar model’s birth years. Like take a guess as to what year Laylah was born. Your clues include her totally awesome black ra-ra skirt worn over lycra leggings; major piles of necklaces and bracelets; layers of lace, cotton, and mesh; blown out wavy messy hair tied up with a headband and big bow; and totally wicked “boy toy” belt. Like, did you guess it? Awesome!
The 80’s were a time when men and women were bold in their fashion statements and outspoken in their individuality. One of this generation’s fashion icons was none other than Madonna. She revolutionized the layered look and her excessive jewelry was filled with pearls, beads, and crosses. Women, young and old, copied her messy chic styling so in that way Madonna’s style had to be one of the most significant times of 80’s fashion. Fer shur 😉
Laylah grew up with Madonna and admires the woman who wasn’t afraid to be both sexy and intelligent while setting fashion trends. Laylah is wearing a variety of designers for today’s special event. It’s easy to open a box and wear what’s in it, so she decided to have fun and express her individuality by mixing and matching many talented designers.
Taking elements from Madonna’s early 80’s “Lucky Star,” “Borderline,” and “Like a Virgin,” music videos are the result of Laylah’s creative outfit. Her cropped tank top and mesh shirt, worn over a black lacy bra, is adorned with layers and layers of necklaces. Thanks to the “add” option, Laylah was able to create additional attachment points on her avi to allow her to pile on the necklaces and bracelets. The 80’s were excessive and over the top in its use of over accessorizing. There was like totally no such thing as too much.
Her lacy socks and ankle boots balance the short flouncy silhouette of her skirt and her patterned leggings show off long legs. And no 80’s ensemble would be complete without lacy fingerless gloves and neon nail polish. Madonna popularized the beauty mark in the 80’s, so Laylah used a makeup alpha to add a beauty mark over her lip, and she wears the dark bold eyes, with long eyelashes, and brightly accentuated cheeks with a bright red lip to mimic Madonna’s glam makeup style. Adding to her 80’s look, Laylah’s hair is a combination streak of blonde, dirty blonde; dark blonde; sunkissed blonde, and messy, just as Madonna wore hers in the early 80’s.
