Fashion a la SGN?

Fashion a la SGN?

I don't imagine that fashion commentary is likely ever to be much a feature of this site, but this week's Grammy Awards offered an opportunity too good to pass up.


According to her website, Sasha Gradiva - also known by her stage name SASHA, is a Russian-born, New York-residing recording artist, songwriter and actress. Her music is a blend of pop dance with strong electro flavor."

I quit paying attention shortly after Woodstock, so that doesn't mean much to me, but SASHA got my attention and much of the rest of the known world by wearing a pink chiffon gown accented by armor plate and a variety of guns.

Given the security surrounding a celebrity orgy of self-congratulation like the Grammies, I think we can rest assured the arms in question were plastic models, but they made a statement of some sort.

What really interested me was the commentary about the outfit. It wasn't too long ago that there would have been a lot of tut-tutting about promoting the gun culture. But what I heard about the well-armed frock referred to the Terminator films, not politics. That I call an improvement.
