from the guardian...
thought it was an amusing description of her...

It's impossible to be neutral about Björk. Her critics certainly have plenty of ammunition. She eats roast puffin. She has a bonkers fashion sense and speaks in a mix of Nordic and Mockney. Spitting Image made a puppet of her. She had a very public fight at Bangkok airport with a photographer who got too close to her son (images of Björk banging the woman's head on the floor went round the world). Director Lars Von Trier even claimed she tried to eat her dress during filming of Dancer in the Dark .



A true fashion radical, Björk champions designers like Rei Kawakubo and Sophia Kokosalaki (who made the 'curtain' she wore to the 2004 Olympics). She would never wear jeans and a T-shirt, she says, because they are 'a symbol of white American imperialism, like drinking Coca-Cola'. Her most famous fashion faux pas was wearing a swan outfit to the 2000 Oscars (she claims it was a conceptual joke). Does she ever tire of being eccentric? 'It's like music. So long as it's a form of self-expression, I'm quite into it, but not when it becomes about power status. I do try and wear stuff by unknown designers, and I make sure I pay because if nothing else I have money.' Today she is wearing a vintage yellow garment that is very nearly a dress, accessorised with an orange tracksuit top, silver shoes and gold handbag. A dusting of blue eyeshadow highlights her feathery eyebrows and wonderful flat cheekbones. She looks lovely. But she is also endearingly fidgety: scratching like a small child, twisting in her chair and trying to keep her dress this side of modest.

there is more up at the website...

The Bjork Thread
I think she deserves an entire thread to herself

Lets celebrate Bjork! What are your opinions??

Welcome to tFS Venus As a Boy! In fact, we do have a thread about Bjork. We don't have a whole lot, but maybe we could expand from there? I'll merge the two threads so you can keep on adding pictures

My first fellow Irishman... I need to take a moment to reflect. :p

Here are another two (at times controversial) Bjork threads :

http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...ighlight=bjork

Breathe got there first (actually the first link I posted is to a much longer and older thread)

hmmm... on a second thought, I don't think I'll merge it to the larger thread. It seems like the older is a large disscussion about Bjork's music and style without pictures. Perhaps this thread could be more about visuals...
