Lingerie in "Flashing Lights" Video
Posted on June 03 2008
So Kanye West is in Stumptown tonight, which led me on a wild goose chase to find the video that The Lake and Stars lingerie was supposedly featured in. After spending way too much time on Youtube, I can only assume it must be the final version of "Flashing Lights," directed by the brilliant Spike Jonze and featuring playmate Rita G. It's a pretty great video of a scantily-clad woman exacting her revenge on a (presumably) cheating lover, though there is definitely no Lake and Stars lingerie in it. It's a bit hard to tell since it's so dark, but I think it might be a Made by Niki bra. (We thought about carrying this line but decided against it because of the over-the-top retro vibe that reminds us of granny's underwear drawer.) My guess is that wardrobe tried to squeeze Miss Rita's ample bosom into the No Pressure Bralette, only to find that it was not equipped to handle quite that much flesh, hence the need for a full-coverage, heavy-duty support bra. Curves and all, though, girl has a fierce walk, that's for sure. To quote Jack Lemmon in "Some Like it Hot" regarding Marilyn Monroe's equally jiggly strut... "It's like Jell-O on springs!"
