In Alexa's newest photoshoot, she tried her hand at being Goldust for a day. The adventure turned out quite well, and she threw a few fun curveballs in the mix for us. First, we got several snaps from a behind-the-scenes vantage point, showing how her make-up was done. It's an appropriate add considering how intricate Goldust's face art is. It has the added bonus of letting us see her pre-shoot outfit, which is nearly worth a 'shoot of its own and totally makes this into a two-for-one review :) #Bonus. I love this cropped jacket with the lace sleeves - it melds an urban biker vibe with delicate femininity. Alexa set it against an all-black pairing of a cami and jeans, and then brought in a big dollop of glam with her crystal-accented belt and massive-stone necklace. the way the hematite and clear stone connect the black and white shades of the clothing is spot on. I would likely lean toward finishing this look with suede OTK boots. Now, on the 24 karat side of things, girlfriend nailed Goldy's feather-edged lamé robe and gold satin gloves. The long, blonde hair she is already naturally endowed with. So, basically, it comes down to a pose-n-expressions thing and she rocks those as well, giving us a rendering of the Dustman's trademark scowl, a blown kiss and a moment or two of hauteur. While current Superstars dressing up as past Superstars isn't my very favorite type of set , since it tends to restrict the fashion choices ;), I'm won over by the BTS outfit which helps address that concern. And I think Alexa did a fantastic job recreating the Goldust character! (Aside: with her penchant for golden everything, it occurs to me that this would have been a great persona for Mandy to reprise #RandomThoughtDuJour.
