We are absolutely thrilled to be in the music video for Van She's latest album called "Idea of Happiness". One of our favorite songs from the album -- "Jamaica" -- is the background song for our video.
Van She is an Australian Electro-pop group founded a decade ago in 2002. They just appeared in New York earlier this month and are currently on tour promoting their new album.

Ari Seth Cohen of Advanced Style and videographer Lina Plioplyte collaborated on our video as the first of a series for the band on the idea of happiness. It is now on Youtube and we hope it goes viral! We love this picture (below) that Jean snapped of Lina and Ari that evening. They had both just gotten back from a whirlwind trip to LA and were totally jet-lagged. The light was just magical and the weather was incredibly comfortable after the heat wave had broken and the temperature and humidity dropped dramatically. It was like all the planets had aligned and the universe was tilted in our favor.
On August 4th, Ari posted an Advanced Style blog entry with photos of us which he so aptly titled "Graphic Fashion". He was very cagey and didn't let the cat out of the bag about the true nature of the shoot. On October 12th, he announced the video's release in a second Advanced Style posting titled "Van She x Advanced Style X Idiosyncratic Fashionistas".
The photos we took in front of the John Chamberlin sculptures outside the Seagram's Building in August make much more sense now that the video has been released. We posted about our outing at the Seagram's building in our own mid-August posting called "When Blogs Collide".
And there you probably thought we didn't have any musical talent!
Who knows what mischief we'll get into next? Stick around, kiddies! Who said blondes have more fun?
