The set designers pulled out all the stops for Joey on this one, didn't they?! I remain amazed that until I started following Planet Fabulon/Chateau Thombeau I had never even heard of her - Miss Heatherton's success stubbornly remained across the big pond - but I'm glad I have... Jx
Miss Heatherton is an overlooked and under-rated icon, to be sure.
I was transfixed with her outfit: seems to be Pilgrim-like sleeves with a touch of Modgliani at the collar, multiple necklaces (thank you Coco) and 70's disco shoes with mirrors. I shall ponder this more while napping on my Serta!
The ankh really ties it all together.
It's a lot of look, as Tim Gunn would say.
Good lord, Thom. The off-kilter phrasing (what hasn't been done to this song?), Joey's leggy bilingual angst, the high concept sets with lifts and girders and quelle surprise mirror finish. Yeah, this is a short cross country drive through the forest of signs. Thank you for posting. And JH and her co-conspirators.
She took at least as many liberties with this song as Heather Parisi did in the previous post!
What a sincerely fabulous set! But am I the only person who's wondering how she forgot to put her skirt on before filming?
She's such a trouper! Even though her skirt fell off, "The show must go on!"
I was more stunned by the shoes with two different colored rosettes on the toes! (This offended my obsessive need for Ross Hunter-esque coordination.) However, she truly could sing and sell a number. Great!
I, too, found the mismatched rosettes a tad distracting. But I give the gal credit for even walking in those shoes!
Takes one to know one!!
I just saw a picture of Joey's show biz Dad, Ray Henderson, and let's just say the sex appeal didn't fall far from the tree!BrianB
