#NATALIAKILLSHERCAREER

The inspiration for Vanity Scare's designs began after discovering the pop artist Natalia Kills. Kills has destroyed her career several times and reinvented herself with a new alias each time. The name Natalia Kills was her third pop star alias, and the name under which she accomplished her most dramatic fall from grace. Kills humiliated a contestant on X Factor New Zealand, whilst she was a judge on the show and was consequently fired. The YouTube video of the incident subsequently went viral spawning the hashtag #Nataliakillshercareer. 

 

This incident became the initial starting point for these designs which explore the excesses of society and the downsides of fame focusing on drugs, plastic surgery and the role of technology within these concepts. 

FAST FOOD CULTURE

But not to worry, just take two of these,
And everything will be fine

FAME CAN BE A NIGHTMARE

We had diamonds and we had pearls,
Champagne life like a daddy's girl,
But the risks you take ain't worth the price you pay...

A SHOT AT HAPPINESS

And I would go to these clothing stores at the weekends,
And try on these beautiful clothes,
Wearing things that I couldn't ever afford,
Practicing for when I was gonna be rich,
You know, bad boyfriend, no money, no life,
And suddenly it hit me, what the fuck am I doing with my life?

SPILL

Drink the kool-aid? Don't drink the kool-aid?

WE ARE WATCHING YOU

We say our lines,
We do the time,
We're just like on the television
