Måneskin win Best Dressed at the Vision Music Awards 2021

We asked our readers to vote for the best dressed acts of Eurovision 2021. And Italy’s Måneskin are the latest addition to the fashion hall of fame. The quartet earned a total of 1,585 votes — that’s 29.06% of all votes vast.

With the help of creative visionary and stylist Nick Cerioni, the band consisting of Damiano David, Victoria De Angelis, Thomas Raggi and Ethan Torchio delivered some of the most iconic and memorable outfits of Eurovision 2021. Their style harkens back to the glam rock fashions of the 1970s and 1980s, playing with aspects of gender and androgyny.

“The way we dress is against gender norms, what you should wear and how you should dress and how boys shouldn’t wear makeup”, bassist Victoria told wiwibloggs after the band’s second rehearsal. “So we do it to give a message of freedom to be yourself.”

On stage in the grand final, they served sex on a stick. All four band members wore burgundy studded leather and lace as they brought fiery energy to the Rotterdam stage. Lead singer Damiano and drummer Ethan wore matching overalls and chokers, chests exposed. Meanwhile, guitarist Thomas and bassist Victoria wore flared trousers and blazers with loose ties. These looks eventually helped Måneskin win over the public vote and lift the song contest trophy as the champions of Eurovision 2021.

Måneskin proved themselves worthy of the Best Dressed award once again on the Moroccanoil Turquoise Carpet, the quartet turned out in flared leather trousers, leather waistcoats and aubergine purple velvet blazers, complete with silver trimming.

Damiano explained the daring colour choice was an effort to be controversial: “It’s bad luck in television, and we want to be different”, he told wiwibloggs.

What a joke, those clothes were terrible, especially one guy wearing only trousers. There were at least 15 better options.

What colour is considered “bad luck in television” and why?

Anxhela deserved to win, even though her song is my 25th or something… Also what’s Samantha doing in 7th!?
