Sorry, no etymologies found.
This outfit is a tribute to Nico, the always beautifully put together and chic fictional character on the late Lipstick Jungle.
In fact that's Wilders 'dream; the outfit is actually called International Freedom Alliance and was launched last July - to "defend freedom" and "stop Islam".
As you can see, Miley really turned it out for her G-A-Y fans … the outfit is actually kinda hot and she is really owning this non-kiss kiss that she keeps doing in live performances.
The Fates are aligned in the form of the title outfit, led by a no-nonsense operative named Richardson, played by John Slattery in a crafty, deadpan take.
This outfit is a-goin 'to turn back, and we'll all sleep at Pete's place to-night.
OK — the outfit is fine, but choice for the place and hour not so much: makes her look as if she were going to (or coming from) some other event.
