Celebrated rocker Lita Ford teams up with Dee Snider, lead vocalist for bestselling heavy metal band TWISTED SISTER, in a duet for the band's just released video "I'll Be Home for Christmas", available for viewing below. Ford gives the rendition true glam treatment in her smooth, shiny, skintight latex clothing from Syren Couture, the world's leading latex fashion house.
The song is from the band's latest version of "A Twisted Christmas", which was originally released in 2006. The video showcases the Snider/Ford vocal talents in this heavy metal take of a holiday favorite with a quirky twist to the meaning of "home."
The multi-talented Ford started her career at the age of 17 with the famous all-female rock band THE RUNAWAYS playing lead guitar. She is also a singer/songwriter who embarked on her solo career in 1979 and is best known for such hits as "Gotta Let Go" (#1 on mainstream rock charts), "Kiss me Deadly", "Back to the Cave", "Close My Eyes Forever" (a duet with Ozzy Osbourne) and many others.
In the video Ford wears a Chinese-style Susie Wong Dress (Y5748 - $326.00) in shimmering metallic Pearl Blue rubber with silver piping, accessorized with a pewter Calix Collar and Wrist Cuff Set from fetish designer Stockroom.com. She also plays guitar in a full-body, longsleeved Full Catsuit in red rubber, also from Syren (Y8511 - $449.00). Over the red rubber catsuit, Ms. Ford wears a PVC Female Slave Harness from Stockroom.com that's been specially hand-edged in flat studs, along with Stockroom.com's signature Firecracker Wrist and Ankle Cuffs. She tops the whole thing off with a red leather Santa Hat trimmed in soft black wooly sheepskin — the perfect festive fetish accessory, custom-made by Stockroom.com especially for this video.
"I love my latex from Syren — it gives new meaning to the old saying 'it fits like a glove,'" says Ford, who is married to musician Jim Gillette and has two sons. "The Syren clothes are insane. I've loved them forever and my wife looks amazing in them. It's like she's been dipped in paint," adds Gillette.
"How can you not love this video? Lita and Dee are so cool together and Lita's talent, beauty and sheer joy of performing is mesmerizing. It's a great Christmas present to us that she is wearing our styles because we know the video will also become a holiday classic," said Jeffrey Gent, designer for Syren.
