I really do love Florence and the Machine. I've been listening to their new album, Ceremonials, non stop since I received it as a birthday present last Friday, and it's already one of my favourites. Florence herself has also become something of a fashion icon, recently performing at the Chanel SS12 show and wearing beautiful couture pieces by Givenchy and Elie Saab on the red carpet. Confirming that she's now firmly established herself as a style star, Florence graces the cover of the January 2012 issue of Vogue UK, captured on camera by Mario Testino:

The editorial, entitled Siren Song, has yet to appear online, but I can't wait to see it when it does. I'm also really intrigued by the 'multi-tasking handbag' mentioned on the cover, so might have to pick up a copy of the magazine just out of curiosity!

What do you think of Florence's Vogue cover?

08.12.2011- Siren Song

Less than a fortnight after emerging from a giant seashell to sing at the Chanel SS12 presentation, Florence Welch is gracing the cover of every magazine from NME to Interview as she promotes her new album, Ceremonials, which is released next month. Since the release of her debut album, Lungs in 2009, Florence has not only become one of the most recognisable voices on the radio, but has also worked with a succession of designers including Givenchy, Valentino and Gucci to cement her status as a style icon:

From floor sweeping couture gowns for red carpet appearances and performances, to a laid back street style which incorporates lots of quirky little touches, Florence's signature looks are always beautifully co-ordinated. Embellishment, lace and metallics are all key players here, as are vintage accessories and statement jewellery. I love Florence's look predominantly because she's such a style chameleon- from ethereal dresses created by the best design houses in the world to a simple plaid shirt accessorised with a ribbon neck tie, she takes a fun, fearless approach to fashion which works so well and compliments her music beautifully.

What do you think of Florence Welch's style? Are you a fan?

16.10.2011- Sunday Style Spotlight #6: Florence Welch

Florence and the Machine's latest single Cosmic Love, is one of my favourite tracks from the album Lungs and I'm so happy it's the final single to be taken from the record. The video has just been posted on florenceandthemachine.net, and it is epic! Have a watch and see:



A-MA-ZING.

Also, for those of you who couldn't get tickets or live outside of the UK, this Friday (14th May), Florence's gig from London's Hammersmith Apollo will be streamed live from 9pm GMT, go to the website for more details.

Finally, Florence has created a window display for Selfridges, for a project called Sounds Of The Mind, which is a celebration of the power of lyrics. Other artists participating include Hot Chip, Dizzee Rascal and Marina and the Diamonds. Here is Florence's window, based on Cosmic Love:


I can't wait to get myself to Selfridges to have a look at all of the other windows.

11.05.2010- Always in this twilight...

Hello! I can only apologise for the lack of updates recently, assessments and rehearsals galore at university have completely taken over my life, but today was the last day of term so I'm free now until January! Last week I had a lovely birthday with my gorgeous best friends and family and enjoyed a trip to London Zoo, central London for some shopping and copious amounts of cake. Will hopefully post some photos up here in a little while or over the weekend. At the moment I'm just taking time to enjoy not having to worry about deadlines, line learning or reading for class and am so much looking forward to Christmas, catching up with my beautiful friends who are returning home for the holidays and seeing Matthew Bourne's production of Swan Lake at Sadler's Wells in a little over a week. Currently listening to Florence and the Machine on repeat, Lungs has got to be one of the best albums of the year, I just adore it.

More updates to come soon, promise!
