Brooke Candy’s Majorly Glittery, Draggy, Stripper-y ‘Opulence’ <3

Steven Klein is at it again, this time using his newfound music video skills to back not Madonna, but Brooke Candy, the former stripper-turned-rapper. It was Brooke Candy’s appearance in Grimes’ Genesis video that first caught Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti’s eye, her knee-length braids moving him to bring Candy into his fold, styling her now for her Opulence music video. In the video are an impressive 25 looks — wigs, Delfina Delettrez jewels, Givenchy couture-inspired full-face glitter, Alexis Bittar masks, and bejeweled Diesel pieces galore. Brooke Candy and Diesel feted the video release Sunday night in the basement of the Tribeca Grand, flanked on all sides by gays in drag, their deer-in-headlights plus ones, and Amanda Lepore.
