M is for Music


M usic and fashion have always complemented each other, with the most mainstream artists defining the way we should look and what is considered cool.  Elvis' rebellious spirit emanated from leather jackets.  Boys and girls all wanted a pair of Beatle boots. And of course we can't NOT think of Lady GaGa when we see a model strutting down the runway without trousers.  This month (erm, at least in magazine time...January 2010 right now), we're reminded of the relationship that the two industries share. Vogue enlisted up-and-coming music artists for 'Already Famous', photographed by Steven Meisel.  Their presence within the magazine provided an allegory for freshness and renewed energy that accompanied Sasha Pivovarova's wardrobes, all from established European fashion houses currently helmed by "forward-thinking" designers.  So of course Vogue had to bring in the lively Mika (if you don't believe me, watch the 'We Are Golden' music video. Mika's in his undies for the entire video...just a heads up.  Also listen to his cover of Harry Nilsson's 'Everybody's Talkin' SO good).  I want to feature a few other fabulous music acts that start with the letter M so let's see...M is also for...



Metronomy


MGMT







The Monkees
(for good measure. I'm not a big fan of theirs but I this mash-up is genius! Check out Mark Vidler of Go Home Productions here)

I'm sure I missed some other good M acts...did I miss any of your favorites?
