Kacey Musgraves has created a candle inspired by her 2018 song Slow Burn.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the country music star announced that she had teamed with bosses at Los Angeles-based brand Boy Smells on a candle called Slow Burn – with the name taken from the opening track of her Grammy Award-winning album, Golden Hour.

“I brought my song Slow Burn to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment (sic) is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Floaty. Earthy. Grounded,” she wrote alongside an image of the product. “It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favourite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of your favourite wine. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the fading colours of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses.”

According to a description on the Boy Smells website, the Slow Burn candle features notes of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber and smoked papyrus. It comes in a matte gradient glass tumbler with metallic label and is priced at $39 (£30).

And while the Slow Burn candle sold out within hours of going online, it is expected to be restocked shortly.

“This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry,” the 31-year-old added.

Kacey’s entry into the candle market comes after Gwyneth Paltrow hit headlines last month when she released a candle called This Smells Like My Vagina, which included notes of geranium and bergamot, on her Goop website.

Country star Kacey Musgraves is set to take the modelling world by storm after landing a top contract with IMG Models.

The Rainbow hitmaker has been unveiled as the latest addition to the global company’s line-up of beauties.

“NOW REPRESENTING: #KaceyMusgraves,” an IMG Models representative wrote on Twitter.

The singer confirmed the new gig by reposting the tweet on her own account, and commented, “So excited to be joining the @IMGmodels fam (sic)”.

She joins the likes of runway regulars Bella and Gigi Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Karlie Kloss, and Lily Aldridge on IMG’s books.

The news emerges after Kacey stunned on the pink carpet at Monday night’s (06May19) Met Gala in New York City, where she was transformed into a real-life Barbie doll with the help of Moschino designer Jeremy Scott.

Wearing a hot pink leather moto gown with a long matching stole, she carried a pink hairdryer-shaped purse and completed her look with a long, wavy blonde wig. Her appearance was an exact replica of the Moschino Barbie doll Scott had designed for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition.

Kacey clearly had a ball dressing up for fashion’s big night after sharing snaps of her image overhaul on social media.

“LIFE IN PLASTIC WAS FANTASTIC,” she captioned one post, while alongside another, she wrote, “maybe blondes DO have more fun @Moschino x @Barbie – at The Metropolitan Museum of Art”.

However, there was one aspect of the Barbie look she just couldn’t “commit” to – the blue contact lenses.

“I just actually like…really couldn’t see,” she confessed. “Sort of important I guess”.

Jeremy Scott views camp as glamour mixed with ‘over-the-top humour’

Jeremy Scott has opened up about what camp means to him in the wake of the 2019 Met Gala.

Designers took the theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion, and ran with it at this year’s style extravaganza, with celebrities like Katy Perry, Celine Dion and Billy Porter stepping out in spectacular designs.

The concept was taken from Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay of the same name, with an exhibition based around the idea set to open at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Wednesday, curated by officials at the museum’s Costume Institute.

Talking about how camp informs his own designs, Scott told Interview magazine: “Camp to me means over-the-top humour, usually coupled with big doses of glamour. Like everything, the meaning is defined by context. A lot of what is now camp was dead serious at one time, and vice versa.

“I’ve grown up in a very post-post-modern world-references piled on top of references, decades re-emerged and remixed to define the ones we are living in. I grew up genuinely loving things that were bright and glossy, colourful and full of joy-like Barbie. Her late ’80s pink Corvette lifestyle of big blonde hair, totally pink minidresses, and perpetually perfect accessories are now, in this time, rendered ripe for camp.”

For Monday’s event, Moschino head Scott dressed Stella Maxwell, Sarah Paulson, Bella Hadid, Gwen Stefani, Perry, who’s outfit resembled a chandelier, Tracee Ellis Ross, who was decked out with a giant photo frame attached to the front of her dress, and Kacey Musgraves, who came as a real-life Barbie.

The designer ramped things up even more for the after-party looks, with Roar singer Perry slipping into a Moschino burger costume and Stefani swapping her sexy showgirl outfit for an ultra mini skirt with matching tank top bearing the New York Post’s logo.

Kacey Musgraves paid homage to her album Golden Hour with her choice of outfit for the 2019 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on Sunday night (07Apr19).

The singer-songwriter collected the prizes for Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year at the event held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, months after she picked up four Grammy Awards for the record.

Kacey made a splash on the red carpet when she stepped out in a pastel-hued ombre suit featuring dramatic pleated sleeves, with the ensemble originally included in the Christian Cowan x The Powerpuff Girls collection.

“I saw it and immediately was like, ‘This has my name written all over it.’ It even kind of reminds me of the album cover a little bit. A nod to the fan on the album cover, just all the pleats,” she told People, referring to Golden Hour’s cover, in which she is depicted holding a pink fan with a blue sky in the background. “I love a gradient, I love anything ombre… and anything rainbow, clearly.”

Kacey look was put together by stylist Erica Cloud, while she had her flowing brunette locks styled by Giovanni Delgado and her flawless make-up, including a wash of pale pink eyeshadow, completed by make-up artist Moani Lee.

Maren Morris also went with a pastel look, opting for a lilac dress with frill detailing from Christian Siriano, and captioned a snap of herself on Instagram, “LILAC for ACMS. thank you @csiriano for making this dress in this gorgeous colour for me!”

Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman turned heads in a black and silver ensemble from Christopher Kane for the bash, where she supported her husband Keith Urban, and Miranda Lambert dazzled in a neon green number from Alex Perry.

Kelly Clarkson was all smiles in a black lace dress from Alexander McQueen, and Lauren Alaina proved her style credentials in a monochromatic dress by Emil Couture.
