Paloma Faith miiiight not be a household name for those of us stateside quite yet, but fingers crossed that’s about to change really, really soon. The English singer and songwriter is already a HUGE star overseas thanks to her soaring high-pitched vocals, two albums (which are both extremely awesome, we might add) and a penchant for turning her live performances into a fashion explosion of eye-popping dresses, heels, and even headwear. Now that her U.S. debut Fall To Grace has finally hit America and she’s in the midst of a whirlwind global tour, it’s officially time to crown Paloma Faith our newest rising style star. So get ready to wake up and hear the music!

Proving that the stage really IS her personal catwalk, Paloma’s a huge fan of rocking emerging designers like William Wilde and Wendy Benstead alongside mainstays like Dolce & Gabbana. But whether it’s sequins, jewel tones, or a serious mermaid silhouette, Paloma pulls it off with standout charisma. It should go without saying that this lady is an utter beauty chameleon, as well, rocking her auburn hair in retro rolls, a messy beehive, OR topping it off with hats by her fave milliner Piers Atkinson.

Paloma works an equally extravagant style OFF-stage as well, repping studs, shimmer, and tons of glitz on the red carpet, like that crazy-rad bejeweled Dolce & Gabbana frock the singer recently wore to the Brit Awards. Complete with a floral beaded headband and bedazzled pumps, this girl LOVES to shine…and totally owns the look with total and absolute confidence. Case in point: that insanely intricate Nicholas Oakwell couture gown she sported to the EE British Academy Film Awards, which came embellished with thousands of hand-sewn gems. Then there’s the gown she wore to the Brit Awards announcement, a white draped Vivienne Westwood halter that was the perfectly unexpected complement to her loads of badass back tattoos and ostrich feather beret. Yep, Paloma Faith is definitely NOT your average pop star…and you know what? We wouldn’t have it any other way.
