Imogen Heap’s Twitter dress at the Grammys
by Mark R
The Grammys were one gadget-filled event. When Stephen Colbert gave the award for Song of the Year, he read the nominees off of his iPad. As if we didn’t see enough of that Apple iPad last week.
What really made a techno-splash on the red carpet was UK singer Imogen Heap. Her gown was not designed by a huge and expensive fashion designer, but she claimed that this Twitter dress was her own creation.
Yes, this Twitter dress, or twitdress, is designed so she can keep up on her Twittering. You may think that her necklace looks more like a row of bullets strapped around her neck, but this keeps her updated on Twitter. Her purse is an iPhone or iPod Touch that allows her to see photos that people are sending her online.
Somehow, her dress had an internet connection, but I’m not certain I want to know where that is. As for the parasol, my source just says that it is a fashion accessory.
Considering that Imogen Heap’s fame has been the result of social media, I guess it is no wonder why she had this type of dress on.
I have to admit, I don’t really understand how fashion designers think. I will have to say that Imogen’s Heap’s outfit is “ugly”, but I can’t deny that it is practical.
