Girls Aloud - Love Machine

Check out this great Brit-pop video (first found via Beautiful Atrocities):

Instead of a Sci Fi babes poll, let's have us a "Girls Aloud" poll. Watch the video and vote Green (my favorite), Blue, Pink, Yellow, or White.

Placing one vote for the white halter rouche panel-back dress. Wait; we *are* talking about fashion, are we not?

All of those great dresses are available for purchase online from gorgeouscouture.com.
Who knew that Mr. Grok was such a style maven?

I can't believe that I just watched that...

For shame! For shame!

(But I've got to say, Yellow.)

And CHECK OUT that bartender's juggling moves...!

Beth - just ask Mrs. Grok sometime about my shopping [for her] acumen. I may not be a maven, but I know both what I like and what looks good on her. And you knew about that gorgeouscouture site pretty quickly. What gives with that?

Don, It's got a catchy beat and melody, doesn't it? [Yellow was a *close* second to green, btw]. Congrats on graduating and on your pending nuptials.

Love to read those silly fashion rags. But sadly dealing with Valentino taste on a Wal-Mart budget. The Girls Aloud video is brilliant advertising for those smokin' gowns. Wealthy teenager watches the Girls Aloud video on VH1, tells daddy "Buy me that dress for prom!" And daddy says "Anything you want, pumpkin." Ka-ching, another sale. Don't need to remind you that most of the dresses will be sold to gals who probably are delusional. Frau Grok, on the other hand, is one of the select few who could actually wear couture a la Audrey Hepburn. Yes, it is an unjust universe.

Frau Grok and I are taking a cruise in September, and I half-jokingly told her I was going to get her one of those gorgeouscouture dresses for evening wear. She demurred, stating that she's "too old." Now I'm going to make sure she reads your comment so that she knows an unbiased observer [you] concurs with me that she could pull it off.

I don't like manufactured pop groups but I must confess to enjoying Girls Aloud. They're all just so vacous and vain but I can't help but like them, kind of like cotton candy.

Sorry. About ten seconds was all I could stand.

Aw c'mon, Hucbald. It wasn't that bad... you could hit mute and still enjoy the video. Or just cleanse your palate with the Medeski Martin and Wood video above.
