Alien wore Viktor & Rolf

alien

Grazia doesn’t usually allocate a lot of head space to stories of alien sightings. But after reading about this particular close encounter this morning, we couldn’t stop thinking about it…

Winchester councillor Adrian Hicks claims to have encountered an extra-terrestrial life form during a Saturday afternoon stroll down the city’s busy high street. So far, so bonkers. But unlike all those other lazy aliens in their dull dull dull green ensembles (or District 9’s icky ‘Prawns’), Adrian’s alien displayed a completely awesome sense of style, in an outfit that seemed rather familiar….

Is it just us, or does the artist’s impression (because, y’know, nobody ever has a camera to hand these days…) remind you of a certain fabulous show from Paris Fashion Week on Saturday? Those gorgeous tutus, worn quirkily around the shoulders? The catwalky winged eye make-up...

Somehow it feels right that aliens from another planet would feel naturally drawn to Viktor & Rolf’s other-worldly designs (what’s next? martians in Margiela?).

It seems when it comes to appreciating exquisite cutting and thought-provoking silhouettes, we are not alone.
