Ke$ha's Tour Costume Sketches By The Blonds: First Look


Ke$ha may have sported a somewhat demure look at the Billboard Awards back in May, clad in a black mini-dress by Givenchy. But this glitter-loving pop star has returned to her roots on tour with Pitbull. The "Die Young" singer joined creative forces with New York label The Blonds to design sexy sparkle-dipped ensembles for the tour. 

There’s no better fashion house to turn to when you’re looking for an explosion of glitter. The Blonds have designed flashy styles for music’s biggest names, including corsets for Jennifer Lopez, a blood red crystal corset for Selena Gomez’s "Come Get It" album cover, and Beyonce’s soon to be iconic stage outfit: a bedazzled bustier complete with crystal nipples.

However, Ke$ha is no stranger to the brand having rocked their fantastically bizarre fashions since back in 2010. This time around her latest outfits pack a fierce new punch. “The looks are all based on the essence of Ke$ha. It's Powerful Rock & Roll Glamour with The Blond's signature twist,” The blonde duo told Billboard. “The first look was inspired by natural crystal Geodes. The second, by the idea of the ultimate warrior, the lion.” 

The last costume may be our favorite yet. “The third piece is a corset dress inspired by the Sacred Heart and all seeing third eye,” The Blonds explained. After breaking down the fashion we were curious as to what Ke$ha song played while the designers created these sparkling styles? “We love them all but "Crazy Kids" is currently playing on repeat in the studio!”
