FOREVER BLOGGING: California street-fashion brand Forever 21 enlisted local celebrity Bonnie Strange for a special blogger event in Berlin Tuesday night.

The German photographer, model, singer and fashion designer was invited to style six mannequins in Forever 21’s six-month-old store on the city’s busy Tauentzienstrasse.

Strange spent three hours running around Forever 21’s four merchandise-packed floors to find the right pieces for her looks. One featured metallic gold HotPants and a black studded corset paired with thigh-high hose and a studded jacket.

“These looks were inspired by 80s and 90s movies, videos and a little bit of rock,” Strange said, reeling off movie titles including “Pretty Woman” and “Clueless.” While she considers them party outfits, she added the looks are for everyone, regardless of age, as well as for women who dare to don night-time styles during the day. “I used to be a blogger and now I am a German ‘It’ girl, so it made sense for me to be here,” Strange commented. As for the invited bloggers, they received a ginger bread man and a shopping gift card worth 130 euros (around $180 at current exchange) upon entering the store.
