Here's the story, for all you lazy folks:

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

IF you're coming home after five years on the New York schedule - to an exhibition feting your decade of success in the industry, no less - you've got to make an impression… How to really get noticed? How about Prince performing from his seat in the front row? That just about did it for Matthew Williamson this morning. A tent in Eaton Square shook with the tension of a style World Cup as the fashion glitterati hustled for their closer-than-close front row seats; squeals of excitement and cheering from backstage gave us a clue that something mega was about to happen… and then a couple of Motown backing singers (microphone afro and lash-to-brow eye glitter - we're talking the real deal…), took to the stage and we didn't know whether to sit and clap or stand up and dance.

All of a sudden identical twin dancers, in purple silk shifts with silver sashes, appeared to perform pop dressage down the catwalk with Prince himself singing his latest song from his seat in the front row. Until then, knowing as we did that he'd been in town for the Couture Gala last night (wearing white Versace), we assumed he'd just come to support Williamson (and hide his Gala hangover behind those glossy black shades and matching trilby) - but now we hear the whole thing will serve as Prince's new video, no less. From front row to MTV… It was a serious fashion moment, dahlink - and Williamson gave himself a job to live up to the moment with his new collection after such an eye-popping opener.

Loving his bright embroidered dresses and sassy short shorts as we always have, this latest offering was better than ever and, frankly, even Prince couldn't upstage it as we began furiously daydreaming of the high life dressed in these dramatically cutaway beaded swimsuits, skinny neon Ts and sassy trouser suits in stripes of green, grey and cream. A workman dismantling Prince's band's synthesiser was unabashed as the models stepped carefully around him (and the photographers all jeered), but that only served to let us take even more notice of the amazing shoes - let's hope it's still Camilla Skovgaard in charge of Williamson's footwear because these black and white chequered lace-up heels, edged in pink, turquoise, green, coral and yellow, were completely gorgeous (and mesmerising when the models strode out together at the end).

Aztec prints and intricate, glittering, multi-coloured seed pearl embroidery - on cropped jackets with cutaways behind each shoulder, on the necks of bright vests, or in a band above the bottom on backless column dresses - were the most polished we've seen yet from Williamson, while petrol studded T-shirts and waistcoats meant his pretty ladies can be tough in the limelight, too. It's not all about all-out glamour, either - rough cotton turned-up shorts and safari shirts were the perfect tailored backdrop to let all that colour do the talking, while sweet printed wraparound summer dresses, some in lightest chiffon with the print taken from a butterfly wing, made downtime as good looking as can be. Black muslin bled as if on pH paper from white to coral for sexy minis, while Grecian goddesses in cream muslin with gold beading added old world splendour. "You don't have to be beautiful to turn me on," sang Prince (from the speakers this time), as the show came to an end. Yeah, but it helps. No matter if he's heading back to New York next season, with this show Williamson proved that it's London he loves - and London is seriously in love with him. (September 19 2007, AM)

Conflicting reports of what was sung.

Here its U Got the Look.

God knows, the media don't pay quite as much attention as us to these things.

More hopefully here is something about "Chelsea Girls"

That would be a very cool video indeed.

biggrin

ROTFLMAO!!!

"From the front row to MTV" falloff

Yeah, right!!! falloff

Note to Prince...squash this nonsense with Youtube and this video MIGHT get some exposure! Otherwise, it'll collect dust and rot in your vault with the rest of your stuff that MTV wouldn't touch on a threat of total destruction!!

My guess is that if this performance DOES end up in a video, it'll just be little snips and bits of the performance edited in with other stuff...if it's used in a video at all. shrug

If the video appears on Youtube than it would be an official video airing. Just like all of the Universal Music Videos that are on the site now. I do not think the Youtube issue is about not playing videos at all. It is about playing them without permission and with no exchange of fees.

Was Chelsea Rodgers actually there?

The International Herald Tribune seems to think so.

"...take to the mike to sing "Chelsea Roberts." (That was not in honor of London's Chelsea district but to the singer's muse, who paraded in a silver gown.)"

Chealsea Rodgers would be a great choice though i think its a little late...

Hope I'm wrong...

Since Shelby sings the majority of Chelseas lyrics, I now doubt it would be a vid for CR unless of course shes there but just not in the pics or he's singing it instead...

lol

obviously you have never listened to his early work

and have never heard of him being referred to as bohemian or having a bohemian sound (which is what has attracted so many fans)

and please, Prince has been biting off and on the indie music scene recently in his image specifically the way he dresses nod

Ive listen to plenty of princes stuff, and i am a big fan of his early stuff, and im not with you when you say hes dressing like what you would regard indie, maby if he starts sporting converse skinny jeans and a waist coat and shirt ill agree, and he certainly should not make any indie rock

were not talking about independent music and labels, you were talking about indie as in a look and a particular sound, theres plenty of indie rock bands now on major labels, "indie" nowadays is diffrent from "indepentant"
check out the strokes there like the typical indie rock band they play indie music and there style is typical of most indie bands

I just showed the last two pictures to a totally neutral party and asked what they saw and I bullshit you not, they said and I quote, "Looks like Willy Wonka and those Things 1 & 2 from The Cat In The Hat doing a musical. Is this on Broadway or something?"

LOL!! Actually, the cape is the bottom of the lady's dress behind him but still that ensemble is straight out of Elvis's closet!

For real! What the hell has happened to Prince? It's like he's not even trying!

First, the Willy Wonka get up and later he was fashionably channeling Elvis! I swear I think these recycled wardrobe styles are a cry for help!
