Great Outfits: Florence Welch (Florence + the Machine)

Florence's look here is so British; I like her Mulberry Lily shoulder bag with a leopard charm.

Wearing a Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti Fall 2010 RTW chiffon longsleeve gown that is very much her style. I don't like this Willow Fall 2010 tattoo print mini dress with Willow bandage wedges on Florence Welch. She usually wears drapy romantic looks so this edgy of sorts look doesn't work for me.

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine had several looks at the 2010 Brit Awards.

She started off on the red carpet wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2010 Couture mini dress with Jimmy Choo lace peep toes.

The singer later performed wearing a stunning rise and fall Spring 2010 gown by London based designer Ashley Isham.

She wore a cute Christian Dior Spring 2010 long-sleeved mini dress, paired with the runway shoes and socks combo.

As a winner of the best ‘British Album’ of the year award, Flo posed wearing a black asymmetrical Roksanda Ilincic dress with a draped detail on the hips and lace sleeves.

The flame haired singer opted for a Jasmine Di Milo Fall 2010 mini dress.

On the models dress is making her look like she has droopy boobs as the fish scale like embellished on the skirt weigh the dress down.

This will be the last ever Jasmine di Milo collection as the designer Jasmine Al Fayed, the daughter of former Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed, had decided to close her label so that she can concentrate on other interests away from the fashion industry.

The British singer wore her gold lace Couture dress without a belt and gold accessories.

I love the pose. It’s so danity and elegant.

She really knows how to work a dress.

This look could’ve easily washed her out, but the red lippie and hair prevent that.

When we think of festivals, we think of wellies, denim shorts, floral dresses and of course mud.

Now we can maybe add Chanel to the list.

Florence Welch of ”Florence and the Machine” was one of the many musical acts to perform at V Festival this weekend.

The flame haired singer opted for a chiffon embellished Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 floor-length dress.

This is a very typical look for Florence who often wears fringed or flowy looks like this to add more movement and drama to her performances.

Her Chanel look is modified.

She opted out of the turquoise beaded details, but she also had the middle belly-button exposing sheer panel covered too.

It wouldn’t surprise me if most of the people who purchased this look opted for Florence’s version.

She was wearing an ensemble straight from the Mulberry Spring 2011 runway for her performance.

Her white jacquard blouse and gathered skirt was paired with black ankle boots and ankle whites.

The stylish singer wore head-to-toe YSL Fall 2010.

Her sheer top with a tie detail around the neck was worn with a lace bustier to prevent this look from being a total rip from the runway.

What I love most about this look is her grey and black textured mini skirt. She manages to wear it well without it making her appear wider than she is. Black YSL Palais pumps complete the look.

Flroence Welch describes her look as ‘half gothic bat crow winged fantasy, half golden 70s Stevie Nicks white witch. And a smattering of disco go-go hotpants.’
It takes some figure to get away with that kind of mix ’n’ match wardrobe, yet she hasn’t always been the lissom six-footer she is now. ‘I was a really chubby kid! Really awkward until the age of 16, then I just got tall, levelled out. I was even skinnier than I am now when I was 17.’
Florence says that although she does worry about her weight – ‘I think every girl does. No one’s completely happy with their body’ – her concern is less about getting fat than getting too skinny. Today she’s in a vintage black dress with a sort of built-in white-trimmed cape, and a battered pair of beige suede brogues. 'New designers like Hannah Marshall and Felder Felder are really amazing. So it’s a mix of young, upcoming designers. That’s exciting – you’re making something; they’re making something.' Her style icons are Stevie Nicks, Siouxsie Soiux and Annie Hall.
"I think now the boundaries between popstar and musician are becoming blurred, and I think that's a really good thing because it allows you to experiment with like, a look, or a style of performance, but still retain your musical integrity. You don't have to have one or the other now, you can have both."
