The stylists are doing a great job for Fifth Harmony.
Touring behind their latest album “24/7,” the red hot girl group seems to have found its fashion mojo.
They recently were featured on the cover of Canada’s “Fashion” magazine. And their videos—and their latest album cover—show the group (Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui) are becoming 2016’s pop fashion icons.
For their current tour, which stopped at the Mohegan Sun Arena on July 30, the group dipped into the all-black rock and roll style guide for their wardrobe. And they were all dressed in some bad ass black.
But they also pulled in some clear pop music style references that embellished the black fabric.
It probably wasn’t a coincidence that the preshow tape included Michael Jackson’s “Black and White.” Fifth Harmony’s wardrobe for the first half of the show had that West Point/military dress uniform look that Jackson made famous during his “Thriller” period. The clothes also had that Janet Jackson “Rhythm Nation 1814” touch as well. There epaulets, large brass buttons, faux doublebreasts, embroidered cuffs, and more.
Later on, after an instrumental break, their wardrobe remained black. But this time, it had a sexy, seductive feel to it, reminiscent of Christina Aguilera in the film “Burlesque.” There were fishnets and mesh, and lots of peek-a-boo.
With hair and makeup on point as well, Fifth Harmony has upped its style game for the “24/7” tour.
