Here at the interns we give our ears and proper workout so we thought we would give our eyes a chance to prove their worth. Here are the best threads worn this week by people in the music biz.
Solange hosting Kiehl’s Pioneers By Nature Party in London
Get out. Where is the praised hands emoji on the keyboard when you need it?? Looking pretty as a peach (on the top), pairing a full length bronzed pleated skirt and yellowy green metallic shoes isn’t something most people would even think of assembling. But (I’m sure) without even second guessing it, Solange does. Fashion statement indeed.
This old-school debonair newcomer is becoming known just as much for his approach to fashion as he is for his music. Admitting he dresses nearly exclusively in vintage, his sound and flair is a throwback to a soulful era. Sharp indeed, there’s still a smoothness and a relaxed attitude evoked in Bridges' sense of style. I dig his vibe.
Whilst a lot of people will be hating on this, I don’t mind it. Charli XCX can be pretty ballsy with her fashion but this cute overly girly is still something different for her. Attending the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb 10th Anniversary party she choose to wear a head to toe look from their Spring 2015 Couture Collection. Very few, however, can pull off a look straight from the runway. If she had personalised this with different shoes it could been a lot more impressive. Also she totally should have kept it off the shoulder as they did on the runway.
Tori Amos at Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Anniversary Party
The art meets fashion, avant garde designer duo Viktor & Rolf are all about the theatrics. So they appropriately choose long time collaborator, Tori Amos, to be the soundtrack of the night. The simple yet dramatic outfit she wore accessorised with bold and quirky glasses, suited the brands aesthetic as well as the spectacular backdrop of the Parisian La Trianon theatre.
A$AP Rocky featured on GQ’s instagram
As he puts it, “fashion is almost like a religion”. Amen. The kid know how to dress and after numerous features, interviews and appearances on their best dressed list it’s not surprising GQ is a HUGE fan. The recent instagram post showcases A$AP’s experimental and varied style. No doubt with with his extensive fashion knowledge and natural sense of style, he had a lot of input in this outfit choice.
Before she was an actress and everyone’s choice for “who I’d turn for”, Ruby Rose was a DJ and recording artist. DJing at Pacha nightclub in New York, her silver vest and shorts combo went perfectly with her colourful tattoos covering her body. Even though she looks amazing in full length dress, I don’t think anyone rocks the masculine tomboy style better than her.
Lauryn Hill Performing at Tory Burch’s Party in Paris
Apparently it was the biggest party of the year and the main contributor was Lauryn Hill’s performance. The Moroccan themed garden party held in a 17th century mansion’s courtyard was an exquisite setting but it was Lauryn’s appearance that captured everyone’s attention. The “inspiring, brilliant, divine” (as the designer described her) looked just that. Wearing white mini dress, long sleeveless overcoat, and thigh-high gladiator sandals, Hill’s outfit emulated the party’s theme beautifully.
Jay Sharrock, Alex Turner, Miles Kane and Jeff Wootton
If anyone going to make the cut for best-dressed lists, it's English rockers. Seen at the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in London looking a little weird but cool because they couldn’t care less.
Lily Allen at Wireless Festival
She seems happy. This is probably before she got rejected from the VIP area. Looking very trendy in her pink MCM backpack, midriff, sneakers and mirror sunglasses, my eyes were still drawn initially to her chest. I know she’s not wearing a bra...but she should.
