Star Studded: Rhinestoned Clothing

Posted on

From the oversexed, silver-studded bartenders in Coyote Ugly to Christina Aguilera‘s naughty-but-nice rhinestone-enhanced ensemble in her latest video, ”Come On Over Baby,” shimmery fashions abound. The rage for rhinestones, grommets, and stud appliqu├ęs is yet another nod to ’80s glam and punk, and it’s creating a huge demand for the Bedazzler, a do-it-yourself studder that’s become a top seller on websites like UV115. com. ”Everything can be Bedazzled,” says site cofounder David Alhadeff, who thinks the look isn’t limited to girls. ”It can be done in a masculine way. Look at ‘N Sync. Everything they wear is Bedazzled.” Bringing new meaning to the term stud-muffin.
