White Trash Meets High-Class
Nov 15, 2013
Peggy Noland, the concept designer who supplied Miley Cyrus with her Air Jordans and Rihanna with custom rompers for her tour, is explaining her latest project: an absurd line of T-shirts and dresses featuring various images of Oprah’s head Photoshopped onto nude bodies — while gleefully watching Teen Mom 3 on a couch in her parents’ suburban home in Kansas City, Missouri. An appropriate setup for an artist who calls her aesthetic the place where “white trash meets high class.” Noland, who splits time between L.A. and Kansas City, where she owns her flagship boutique, says she is as much inspired by eccentric, rich French women as she is by R. Kelly — and small-town meth addicts.
