Haute Couture

A Poem by Samantha ~virginpoet

about the dark side of fashion and what the woman waring the dress MIGHT be like or might be going through

The night of the red carpet
Flashing lights and bright darkness
The crowd has gathered closely
like million man marches

The limo pulls up slowly
Glossy as far as folks see
The supermodel steps out
so polished like a trophy

Her dress is custom-fitted
Gaultier and expensive
Knitted with full precision
Accented like it’s British
Bodyguards are on stand-by
Explosive scene like landmines

The fans scream in amazement
at how she wears the brand lines
Chanel-type of demeanor
Versace-minded dreamer

She skipped her meals earlier
Merely to appear leaner
Low self-esteem high tension
Secrets she cared to mention
What’s the need for food when she
can live off of attention

She’s worshiped like a goddess
Rocks that Dior the hottest
Got various walk styles
None are humble or modest

Louis Vuitton vanity
Matched with cash insanity
Lived only for the glamor
and lost her humanity

Madison Avenue b***h
Tragic Rodeo Drive witch
She flew to Champs Élysées
on a Givenchy broomstick
She’s f*****g with a surgeon
He said she looks too urban
And that operation hurt
the first time like a virgin

Three bottles of Moscato
drove her drunken bravado
Her constant mantra was the
"You Only Live Once” motto

The faux faith of the masses
So bougie and high-fashioned
For the sake of appearance
she burned her soul to ashes

This is NOT about Christina Aguilera

Its more about the dress, Which I love! I used this pic cause she wore it best not to mention the paleness of her complexion which gives it a slightly unhealthy look

A stunning and unique poem!!!

I like the velocity and attacking strength of those lines, they sound almost condemning, but then again, the character of the poem is an empty shell, sold her hopes and fears for becoming something more that ultimately she cannot handle...I think you captured all the dull and hollow of the fast-laned life in a brilliant manner.

First of all Moscato is awesome! Now, the subject matter is shallow at best, but that is not all together a bad thing. Shallow is selling right now (don't ask me why). Written impeccably (except the lack of punctuation - but thats your style and you already know how I feel on it). All in all a great job.

haha, I did not relate Christina Aguilera to this poem at all. I liked the ending a lot and the whole, sell your soul for fame and riches, feel to it.

Versace minded dreamer... I am so unbelievably in love with your poem. AMAZING piece- such powerful imagery and biting language.

The good life can lead us to dangerous water. I like the complete tale. From starving yourself to drinking till you don't care. The story is the life of many.
"For the sake of appearance
she burned her soul to ashes"
Thank you for the outstanding poem.
