Just stop. Stop and watch this brilliant, beautiful video.
This is the video for Kylie Minogue‘s upcoming single, “Get Outta My Way,” due to be released on September 27.
This is the kind of video that I need with me at all times. The kind that I want to pull out of my pocket during an uncomfortable train commute after an awful day of work to remind me that there is still some good in the world. Yes, friends–this is the stuff that iPod Touch dreams are made of.
Visually speaking, “Get Outta My Way” isn’t something we haven’t already seen from Kylie, albeit a sampling of her best moments: From the masterful floor choreography of “Slow,” to the lights and glam of “Wow,” to the damn near identical writhing and posing found with “In Your Eyes,” the formula isn’t exactly new.
Yet this video is as arresting as any of her others, if not much more so. Words fail to describe the beauty and elegance of it all–the fact that Minogue manages to so perfectly and effortlessly flaunt her beauty in the most effortless of ways. There’s drama, but no pretense. The result is sophisticated camp, like a high fashion photographer’s first foray into pop.
I mean, the clothing! That magnificent chained corset? Those spiked shoes? THAT GOLDEN CLAW THING ON HER HAND?! I die, Rachel Zoe style.
What beats this? Honestly? Does anything, really? I don’t think so. This is one of the finest videos Kylie Minogue has ever created, and certainly one of the best of the year.
Simply put, this is divinity captured in video.
Kudos to you, Alexandliane–you’ve done it again.
