!! OMG, watch the video for Scissor Sisters’ “Invisible Light” !!


Scissor Sisters finally got around to doing a video for “Invisible Light”, the best song on their third album Night Work. It’s an homage to surrealist ’60s cinema by filmmakers like Luis Buñuel and Henri-Georges Clouzot and it features a few naked ladies so make sure your boss isn’t looking over your shoulder while you watch it… unless of course your boss is cool like that. It’s directed by Nicolás Méndez, the man responsible for El Guincho’s “Bombay” video.
In a recent interview with X Magazine, frequently shirtless Sister Jake Shears said he regrets not releasing “Invisible Light”, an obvious crowd-pleaser at their recent shows, as Night Work‘s lead single:

I think ‘Fire With Fire’ wasn’t the right single to release first. That’s the heartbreak about it – it’s something I always follow, always going with my instincts… Because, if you put something out when you’re following your instincts and it fails, it’s all on you. ‘Invisible Light’ should have been the first single.

BONUS! After the jump check out a clip from Henri-Georges Clouzot’s unfinished masterpiece Inferno starring Romy Schneider — a clear inspiration for “Invisible Light”.

!! Nick Knight and Björk pay tribute to Alexander McQueen !!


Photographer Nick Knight has directed a film paying homage to the late fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen featuring new music by pop singer Björk. Entitled ‘Too Lee, With Love, Nick’, the kaleidoscopic short appeared on Knight’s SHOWstudio.com website yesterday and stars a cast of all-black models wearing McQueen’s most important designs. In an interview with Style.com ahead of the film’s premiere at the British Fashion Awards last night, the director said:

We felt it was important to have the clothes featured one last time on flesh and blood before the museum takes them away… I worked a lot with McQueen, so, yes, it is an emotional experience. But I hope this film will play proper homage to his career, and the absolute genius he was.

Next summer The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will showcase 100 of the iconoclastic designer’s creations spanning his 20-year career with the exhibit “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”. The show will be on display for the public from May 4 to July 31. McQueen, 40, committed suicide in his London home in February.
