Let’s just all agree that the weekend has officially arrived early, thanks to Cobra Starship and their amazingly addictive dance anthem “#1nite.” Originally released way back in June ’11, the band has outdone themselves- yes, again-with an updated version of the pop jam and a brand new video. Featuring emerging Canadian singer My Name Is Kay on vocals along with Starship frontman Gabe Saporta, the vid just premiered yesterday on MTV. It’s filled with road trips, summer loving, and a major gas station dress up party. Check out the best looks…
The dynamic duo hits the local gas station for a round of dress up (don’t question it), sporting tacky-kitsch clothes like Hawaiian t-shirts, day-glo colored blouses, and a crazy feathered headdress (culturally insensitive collar tug). Gabe’s orange tropical top and printed hat are definitely WAY different from his signature slim suits and vintage jackets, but they’re totally in sych with the whole Hawaiian print trend AND snapback resurgence happening right now. Gotta admit- we’re digging it. Kay’s trying on a traffic-stopping tangerine blouse, which she totally works (or should we say, werks) later in the video. Hello ’80s throwback!
The ’80s-inspired madness continues in Las Vegas when the couple stages in impromptu rooftop dance party. Kay’s rocking a cropped turtleneck, high-waisted shorts, and serious bling. We love how she’s channeling her inner Gwen Stefani with a front hair roll- can we bring back this retro fabulous look, please? P.S. If you want to copy Kay’s reto-glam look yourself, hit up your local American Apparel…. we just did, and they’ve got both the crop top AND the shorts in stock! On the guy front ,Gabe looks a little more like the dude we know and love in a blue and white polka dot button-down, a navy jacket (collared popped, obviously) and skinny white pants.
