108 Quirky and Eccentric Stylings of Paloma Faith ...

By Neecey

The stylings of Paloma Faith are stand out in a music scene where making an impression is not easy. Superstars hog the limelight as much for their fashions as their music. Amidst the elegance of Beyoncé, the edginess of Rhianna, the weirdness of Lady Gaga, the tomboyishness of Pink and the uniqueness of Gwen Stefani, the very quirky and oft eccentric stylings of Paloma Faith deserve their special place.

"I don't really feel I am of this time" Words out of the very own mouth of the British singer sum up the stylings of Paloma Faith. Outlandish but distinctive, Paloma's inspiration is the pin ups of the 1940s and 50s.

And to end, I thought I'd share with you the inspiration for the stylings of Paloma Faith in her own words.

"I’m inspired by the queens of tragedy – Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Judy Garland. Then throw a bit of Nick Cave, Etta James and PJ Harvey into the mix, add all my influences from avant garde cinema and you start to come close. My visual style is fancy dress as I never grew out of dressing up boxes! My early performances were David Lynch meets William Blake at the circus. Welcome to my world…."

What's your view on the looks from Paloma Faith - love them or hate them?
