This is “Elements Of Vogue” (David DePino’s 1989 Original Mix) – Johnny Dynell feat. David Ian Xtravaganza as interpreted for broadcast by a school of vogeurs including Legendary London Legend, Roy and Britain’s early champion of the form, Les Child. (That’s her shutting down the category in a platinum hair hat.) Front and center and stealing thunder we see the lovely and sorely missed, Fidel Field. A fragile creature we knew too briefly. May she runway in peace. All this madness is circa 1990-ish. Don’t be jealous of their beauty, darling, be jealous of their talent!
Now, in the words of your Master of Ceremonies, David Ian Extravaganza, “I’ll now depart by saying, ‘I love you all for loving me.'”
“TO DO LIST: Withdraw $40,000.00 for orchid bill – Don’t forget to send Thank-You Kaftan to Dan – Try, really try to invent something entirely new by midnight tonight. “
Gian Franco Rodriguez is all Victor Hugo. This performance is 100% approved by BillyBeyond.com. ☑️
Krysta Rodriguez as Liza is a tour de force, singing in her own voice and dancing as Liza you will be convinced, amazed and most of sucessfully entertained by her magnificent display of talent. To put it “simply,” Ewan McGregor is Halston. He lives. You’ll die.
Amazing with a “Z.”
Rebecca Dayan plays Elsa. There’s only two Peretti’s. Elsa, and Rebecca as Elsa. She’s so gorgeous that she’s hard to see and hear at the same time. Anticipate rewinding. This level of beauty deserves multiple replays. Encore de Dayan!
“Yes, I’m still holding for Dan…hello?… ( muzak sound cue ) Halston… Halston…calling for Daniel Minahan…”
Rory Culkin plays Halston’s bestie, the late Joel Schumacher. Good hair, right? May I just throw out a beauty note here please? The make-up is timely perfection. You can all relax.
I wouldn’t say David “played” Joe Eula. It’s better to say he embodied him. It’s more than a portrayal and it’s spooky-good. (David Pittu is Joe Eula, famed fashion illustrator and Halston’s creative director.)
Gee, I wonder who choreographed all the runway scenes?
That’d be me. There will be turning, running, smiling finales avec complex pivots as well as several split-doubles and yes, the rumours on the runways are true. We do split a triple in episode four. Models, prepare for your masterclass.
Halston, the limited series premieres on Netflix on May 14.
These images were released on what would’ve been Halston’s 89th birthday (he died of AIDS complications at 57 years old, in1990. RIP.)
