There's nothing like the loose and free performance of style and sexuality as it is practiced by the most committed members of Mexico City's new fashion-scenester-glitterati set. Above, Denise Marchebout, EGR, Juanpe Freyre, and Zemmoa, at the David LaChapelle opening party Thursday night at the Antiguo Colegio San Ildefonso, the 16th Century fresco-adorned museum in downtown Mexico City.
And below, after the jump, because every so often a flagrant celebrity-fan shot is more than justified ...
... it's yours truly with LaChapelle's eternal muse, Amanda Lepore, the one and only.
Lepore is in D.F. for the opening of LaChapelle's "Delirios de Razon," an exhibit at San Ildefonso of some of his most iconic images and recent photographic "murals."
My one-on-one interview with the photographer, forthcoming in a Mexico City fashion and design magazine, tackles the epic question: "What is so alluring about the transsexual, as an icon?"
