Leggo my Legos…

5 Apr

As a child I loved playing with my legos.  I would sit and build up houses, trees and just about anything my mind could conjure up…. Who would have ever known that the building blocks I loved as a kid would become Fashion. Kanye West was the first to introduce the whole lego concept when he adjourned the heart shaped lego pin made by Dee and Ricky on the cover of his heart break/808 album and in his debut in Vibe Magazine.

Then Will-i-am took the whole lego phenomena to another level  wearing a basketball cap and necklace made of Lego blocks. French fashion designer JC de Castelbajac took Lego’s to the high-end sending models strutting down the catwalk with lego made accessories.

And then there was Fergie.. Fergie in my opinion has always been kind of  a wild child, and being the first lady of Black Eye Peas she was sure to not be out done by label mate Mr. Will-i-am. Fergie performed at the Annual Kids Choice Awards in a dress and accessories made of Legos. I have to admit the dress was quite cute and all the detail that went into that garment is remarkable. The dress was custom-made by LA based Designer Micheal Schmidt. It was colorful, fun and fitting the theme of the night which was the “Kids Choice Awards”.  Fergie showed that deep down inside she is just a kid herself.

It just goes to show how fashion and innovation work hand in hand… But what I really want to know is who rocked the Lego the best??? My vote is definitely on Fergie. Sorry Yeezy….
