Kim Petras Is A Fashionable Pop Princess In Her “Faded” Video
Kim Petras is a carefree pop princess in her chic “Faded” video. The breakout star closed out 2017 with the Lil Aaron-assisted ode to fake friends. “They wanna squeeze you when you’re warm. When it’s cold they ain’t around,” Kim cautions over simmering synths. Her advice to avoid being caught in the web? Self-medicating by staying faded every night. The breezy bop was another surefire hit and promised big things to come in 2018.
Now, she is kicking off the new year by delivering a brilliantly hued visual for the track. Released today (January 25), the Nicholas Harwood-directed project features a horde of fashionable looks and some joyful choreography from one of pop’s most promising newcomers. Embracing her ’90s-tinged aesthetic in outfits from Balenciaga, Christian Cowan, Dsquared, Margiela, MarryMe-JimmyPaul and Chromat, Kim showcases some enviable choreography in a trash-filled warehouse. Later she hits the roof, where she is joined by her emerald-haired collaborator.
Serving fierce looks and a playful attitude, the video perfectly matches the track’s vibes. With any luck, “Faded” will eclipse the success of her viral hit “I Don’t Want It At All” and will net Kim another well-deserved hit. She looks every bit the aspiring pop princess in the video, and it seems clear that she has big plans for the remainder of the year. Give the video a spin up top!
