Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, a VMA-nominated artist, performed at the V Festival in London over the weekend wearing a sheer dress with a black bodice and gold embroidered panels on the hips and turtleneck by Chanel. The dress was modified from its original form when it appeared on the label’s pre-fall 2010 runway last December, namely the sheer stomach was covered up and the turquoise accents were taken away. And not only did she ditch the turquoise, she also ditched shoes. Bare feet? How anti-conformist! We like the version that Florence wore a lot better than the runway version, don’t you?
