FASHION COLLECTION INSPIRED BY
LOS ANGELES TIMES
New York Fashion Week: At JC Obando, Gene Simmons meets the Victorians

By Booth Moore / Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles designer Juan Carlos Obando's cool collection was inspired by the style of glam rock bands KISS and Queen, along with slimline Victorian silhouettes.

The stars of this show were a white glam-rock jacket and straight skirt slit up the side, and a sleeveless white "cage" dress, both with ornate black leather appliques that brought to mind Gene Simmons' famous face paint.

It is their 20th studio album, and is a follow-up to 2009's "Sonic Boom".

KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Dear KISS!

Last week, we had a carnival party at the college (Corvinus University of Budapest) in Budapest, Hungary. My friend and I decided to wear KISS make-up because we really like your music!

We had a great night, and the girls loved us :) Surprisingly we met a girl, who also wore KISS make-up! Here's a montage of the photos from our party.

I hope you come back soon to Hungary and give us another great concert!

Hungary loves you!

TEACHER DRESSES AS GENE TO PROMOTE READING
NEWARK ADVOCATE
NEWARK -- Elvis Presley and Gene Simmons walked the Excel Academy halls this week for the annual Right to Read week, themed "Rock Out and Read."

"They're all quite frightened," high school English teacher Sarah Boulard said, laughing, about her students in reference to her Friday costume -- a black wig, spiked foam shoulder pads and silver leggings, reminiscent of an outfit worn by Simmons, a member of the band Kiss.

The school has had a music theme all week, with different classrooms highlighting different decades in music. For every 10 pages a student read during the week, he or she received a guitar pick to put on a lanyard.

Boulard's class focused on the 1980s all week -- prompting Friday's Kiss outfit and other '80s-themed outfits throughout the week.
