VMAs 2015: Video of the Year Cakes
Lindsay Nathanson

While most Sundays promise weeklong feelings of impending dread, resentment and introspection, this weekend will likely break that mold with MTV’s Video Music Awards.

So, how does one celebrate such a glorious, and soon-to-be legendary event that will most likely be immortalized in GIF form? With cake, of course.

Lindsay Nathanson of dessert destination Sprinkles for Breakfast created custom cakes exclusively for PEOPLE, inspired by the VMA Video of the Year nominees. Nathanson, who baked a slew of Taylor Swift-themed cakes in July, took on the deliciously important task of transforming a key lyric from each music video nominee into cake-form. Yep, the baker took standout lyrics from Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” (pictured above), Beyoncé’s “7/11,” Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” and Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”

“Music is such a wonderful source of inspiration,” Nathanson tells PEOPLE. “I wanted to make sure the cakes captured each song’s individual personality.”

And she did just that with each of her sugary confections — just peek at her “Uptown Funk”-inspired cake, which served as an ode to peanut butter brand, Skippy’s with its lyrics. Genius.

Scroll through to see the rest of the cakes, matched with the lyrics that inspired each design.

Beyoncé — “7/11”
“Man it feel like rollin’ dice, man it feel like rollin’ dice
Seven eleven, seven eleven, seven twice, man seven twice”

“Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright …
I keep my head up high
I cross my heart and hope to die”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
