Alexander Wang Brings Comeback Mango– Alexander Wang seems to be a big fan of Chris Kattan in his role as Mango. Alexander has brought the character back to life for his 2014 video campaign. The video also features rapper and choreographer Sharaya J, model Behati Prinsloo, real housewives star Sonja Morgan, fashion writer Derek Blasberg and former hockey player Sean Avery.
The plot of the video reads, “Mango returns to New York City from his voluntary exile in the Arctic, believing that he is the star of the new T by Alexander Wang video. Mango soon realizes that Saraya J. is the true star of the video, while he, in fact, is one of her back-up dancers. In true Mango fashion, both characters competitively face off in the dramatic music video finale.”
Alexander Wang, who recently was up for a CFDA award for Womenswear Designer of the Year, was spotted at the event with model Anna Ewers as well as go-go dancer Mango. “I’ve always loved Mango’s character from SNL, and to be able to work with (Chris) was such an honor,” the designer said to Style.com. “Sometimes when fashion becomes too stiff, it’s great to have someone such as Mango come through and inject a new burst of energy. Having fun and a sense of humor is so important to me that when I’m able to incorporate it into my work, I run with it.”
