We are living in a time where dance is de rigueur whether it be a watching Strictly come Dancing winner Harry Judd the Drummer from rock band McFly Waltz, Rumba or Jive - or going to dance lessons yourself! demand here has sky rocketed apparently.
Ratings for 'Strictly' were an astonishing 14,000.000! surpassing the X Factor by miles....The whole family across generations has been sucked into the Strictly come Dancing bug....The BBC must be thrilled.....It was reported in the press that Kate Moss is a huge fan of Strictly and held a final nights party at her house to watch it on the telly. I suspect she would love to have a go....It would be a good move for her as she won't want to model for ever and a career deviation onto main stream TV would give her image an approachability it lacks at the moment. Watch this space....
Dancing makes one feel good as well as get fit - 'Zumba' created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990s, is also a barometer of the dance craze trend we are experiencing here in the UK.
Fashion has picked up on this - Prada as usual was ahead of the game and released a fabulous Josephine Baker inspired dance brand film for S/S2010, I posted a review at the time - click here to see it again.http://schelay.blogspot.com/2011/06/prada-summer-windows-milan-josephine.htmlI
Interesting that we have seen Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Ralph lauren, Philosophy and Marchesa picking up on the 1920s flapper trend Prada launched last S/S2010
Carey Mulligan beat Scarlett Johansen to get the role of Daisy Buchanan in the remake of F Scott Fitzgerald's classic book The Great Gatsby about the decadent lifestyle of America's idle rich before the 1930s wall street crash and subsequent great depression.... can't wait to see it.....
I love this Lanvin film above - the models look great if not a little out of sequence - I would give them an 8 /10 if I were marking! and 10/10 for looking cool.
