Paloma Faith

I've been a big fan of Paloma Faith for a while now! So bought some tickets for her tour last year, finally went to see her last night at Shepherds Bush Empire and couldn't have anticipated how incredible of a live performer she would be. In fact in the company of her incredible band they did a better job live than any recording has done!!!

Probably the main reason i'm fascinated with her is her crazy fashion sense. She's an ex Magicians assistant...Her first outfit was an amazing purple lycra flamenco style jumpsuit, with frillys all over the shoulders and down the sides. Thats not the half of it, a sequin/jewell emblazoned FRUIT turban. Oh and Glittery emerald green 6 inch heels!

The second outfit was a floor length backless gliterry silver gown, she ran across the stage in doing covers to billie holiday. And then a pink mac with sequin cape to perform etta james's at last and the encore! Unfortunately iphone minus flash equals to poor photography so enjoy these pictures from the Monday night. I'd love to design for someone like Paloma Faith, she's very experimental! providing someone else could sew all the sequins on...

Check out the video for Paloma's newest single 'upside down' Loving the Sonia Rykiel hat!!!! (yellow liquorice allsort looking head piece)
