We love discovering a new style icon, expecially if there is talent behind the fashion. We have been keeping an eye on soulful singer Eliza Dolittle over the last few months, we knew we loved her voice (and her name of course) and we knew that she could put a look together, but when she performed a set at the recent Lacoste party in front of some of her closest friends including Daisy Lowe and Henry Holland, we knew that now was the time to find out a little bit more about fashion's new style darling.
Eliza's style is as eclectic as her soul/jazz/funk sound, and she transforms herself so regularly that it is impossible to pindown. "I generally just wear what I want, but I like original style and as soon as I see someone wearing something similar to me I just change it up again!" But she is a patriotic lady and admires the work of British designers, Louise Goldin and Christopher Kane.
Perhaps Eliza's new video is the best example of her individual look. She looks super cute in a prom puff dress, complete with huge purple feathered eyelashes (put in place by Queen of Lashes, Sue Marsh), which she works like only a fashion pro can. Now that our original inquisitive eye has become a tracking beam, Eliza Dolittle has become our 2009 fashion inspiration!
