DRESS UP TO GET DOWN!
Mink Schmink - Eartha Kitt
On this evening’s Peppermint Candy we’re very happy to be playing the Queen of Glam herself, the stunning Eartha Kitt. Kitt, of course being the purrrrrfect name for her. No, she’s not the car in Knightrider, but she is a leeeetle bit cat-mad. Not only did she play Catwoman in the Batman TV series, but she was never far from anything feline be it alive or dead. It might have been the abundance of wild cat pheromones that led to Orson Welles calling her the “most exciting woman in the world.” Miaow. In this day and age it’s surprisingly easy to live up to such catty standards. Take PPQ and Anna Sui, for example, who have both recently created fabulous cat hats. And to take it to its logical extreme, you could dress YOUR ACTUAL CAT up in a ridiculous/amazing outfit, a la the slightly bonkers Takako Iwasa who even makes all the costumes herself. Luckily for us, they’re all documented in the incredible book Fashion Cats which you can buy here. We’re totally feline that.
