Florence and the Machine: Girl with one eye

08Jul09

My new fashion/music obsession has to be Florence Welsh, from Florence and the Machine. She has a truly amazing voice and, having been lucky enough to already see her, captivating stage presence- it’s impossible to take your eyes off her when she performs. She also has a wardrobe to die for and is regarded as a muse to PPQ, while Topshop specially customized her outfits for her eagerly awaited Glastonbury performance-something which they have never done before. Her edgy and strong sense of style, self-described  as ‘half gothic bat/crow winged fantasy, half golden ’70’s Stevie Nicks white witch’ mixing vintage with coveted designer pieces has been much copied since she burst onto the scene and she has been pictured sporting lace, gothic and crop top trends which are huge for this season. Scrolling through youtube I came across this live video for a beautiful song, Girl with one Eye which is just mesmerizing and appears on her debut album, Lungs, which came out on Monday 6th July. Her haunting cover of Cold War Kids: Hospital Beds is well worth checking out too.
