Dusty Springfield - The Look of Love


Apparently that look involves a massive wig.

  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the voice is superb and she's a goddess, but all too often it looks way too much as if her wardrobe, hair, and makeup were devised by vengeful drag queens. In the dark.

    1. While I know she was "officially" bisexual, I'm more inclined to believe she was a lesbian with occasional heterosexual tendencies. I say that because I think -- in clothes and hair -- she was a drag queen in that the "lovelorn Dusty Springfield" was a character rather than a staged version of her own self. (But that voice on that song is, to me, one of the highlights of the entire 1960s, inclusive of moon walks and civil rights.)

    2. This is very much a drag act, down to the lip-syncing. Now we see what inspired Lady Bunny's look of love!

      Between this and the previous clip (featuring Julie London's wig and mega-lashes) we've got the most fabulous episode of RuPaul's Drag Race ever!

  2. This has always been one of my favorite songs. I don't "get" wigs, they are so hot and this one would be very heavy, I think!

    1. Love this song! And it reminds me of that crazy scene in the original "Casino Royale".

  3. In the future, safety gays will push giant photos of me around while I walk around my house in two wigs and a ribbon bustier.
