La Roux’s Elly Jackson played a gig at the Viktor & Rolf menswear fashion show today in Paris (men’s fashion week is going on there right now) wearing a men’s tux by the label. “I love suits,” she told WWD. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable in girls’ clothes.”

The designers, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, said that’s why they like Elly — because she plays with gender. And yes, that’s great and all, but we have a different reason. We just like the idea of, a performer who has taken a great interest in PANTS.
