Brooke Candy and Sia Release Beautiful, Emboldening Video for ‘Living Out Loud’

Today, Brooke Candy drops the music video for her latest project, “Living Out Loud,” featuring the one and only Sia. The video displays Candy, as well as various men and women, dressed confidently in high-necked white lace gowns.

Candy elects to display herself in a softer, more subdued presentation in this video than her prior work – an interesting statement since she still shows off prominent body tattoos and crawls around on the ground in bondage gear like a spider.

The writing of “Living Out Loud” was a collaboration between Sia, Greg Kurstin, Geoffrey Early, and Priscilla Renea. Sia herself does not appear in the video, but, in classic form, dancers with her signature black and white wigs.

For this, we didn’t get half the photos we wanted because our batteries were drained from Shazaming everything good from shows and presentations. It was worth it. From Rihanna to Mø, FKA Twigs to Chris Isaak, Crowe-ther to Sbrtrkt, well you get the idea.

Just for you, with all our love — here is the best sounding 1 hour and 28 minutes of fashion week you’ll hear this season.

A Brooke Candy Crush

Last night was Brooke Candy’s ‘Opulence‘ themed video premiere, sponsored by Diesel. The ‘freaky princess’ looked ravishing as she sat front row at the screening of her Steven Klein-directed short film, styled by Nicola Formichetti. Held in the basement of the Tribeca Grand, fashion legends mingled with the Susane Bartsch crew to create a surreal party spectacle… it was like a live-action video with the stars themselves! The pictures speak on their own behalf.

Brooke Candy’s Majorly Glittery, Draggy, Stripper-y ‘Opulence’ <3

Steven Klein is at it again, this time using his newfound music video skills to back not Madonna, but Brooke Candy, the former stripper-turned-rapper. It was Brooke Candy’s appearance in Grimes’ Genesis video that first caught Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti’s eye, her knee-length braids moving him to bring Candy into his fold, styling her now for her Opulence music video. In the video are an impressive 25 looks — wigs, Delfina Delettrez jewels, Givenchy couture-inspired full-face glitter, Alexis Bittar masks, and bejeweled Diesel pieces galore. Brooke Candy and Diesel feted the video release Sunday night in the basement of the Tribeca Grand, flanked on all sides by gays in drag, their deer-in-headlights plus ones, and Amanda Lepore.

Charli XCX, Brooke Candy and… Honey Boo-Boo?

Misery loves company, and sometimes the best company can be found in watching other people go through the same things you have on TV, but in a shiny, overexaggerated sort of way. So what better imagery to accompany a song about a relationship gone sour than images of heartbroken television and movie characters? English singer Charli XCX and rapper Brooke Candy (who you may remember from Grimes’ "Genesis" video) joined forces for XCX’s dark and sublime single "Cloud Aura" and its video, released today. In the black-and-white clip, singer and rapper wander interspersed with clips of recognizable and visibly distraught pop culture figures, including Lauren Conrad of The Hills, Zooey Deschanel, Dianna Agron and Britney Spears, as well as Sissy Spacek in Carrie and Honey Boo Boo, who doesn’t look particularly heartbroken, unless it’s over Glitzy the Pig. Also, Pikachu makes a brief appearance. 

UK filmmaker Ryan Andrews, who typically operates more in the horror realm, directed the clip. Watch.
