I'd love to print screen my inbox for you all one day. I receive an astounding number of emails with anything Eiffel Tower or Paris related from readers and, rather obviously, it tends to make my day. Lately, however, my inbox was inundated with messages telling me I bear a noticeable similarity to singer and actress Paloma Faith.
Paloma, former Burlesque performer (also magician’s assistant and Agent Provocateur salesgirl amongst a dozen other jobs) is recently being considered as 'the next big thing' of the music industry. I have to admit that I became acquainted with the lady when everyone started noting our resemblance, but I feel like I'm so obsessed with her at this point it's almost unhealthy.
I love her music and boy do I love her style! Paloma confesses that her style has a serious theatrical aspect to it. She also speaks of a sense of melancholy, saying that everything needs a bit of melancholy to be beautiful. She's one for the eerie and mysterious things in life.
Like yours truly, Paloma has been through quite a few fashion phases: there was a time when she was into hippie-inspired clothing then suddenly switched to African style numbers. Her fashion sense, which she believes to be more 'acceptable' now that she became popular, used to get her into trouble with her school headmistress back in her teenage years. I feel you, Paloma.
Inspired by the queens of tragedy – Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland et les autres filles - these are a few of my favourite Paloma Faith looks. Miss Faith is an avid vintage lover, mixing pieces from different decades instead of sticking to one. That, dear readers, is something I like.
