How did La Roux go down at Viktor & Rolf?

Yesterday saw us getting completely over excited about super-cool singer and burgeoning style icon Elly Jackson of La Roux’s starring role at the Viktor & Rolf menswear show in Paris. And if the fashion blogs are to be believed she didn’t disappoint.

Styled to look like the design duo themselves with that signature quiff tamed and wearing a killer custom-made mens suit, she belted her way through slowed down acoustic versions of her hits at the intimate catwalk presentation. The designers were absolutely thrilled with their new muse, saying, “... She dresses in a masculine way, and she deliberately undermines expectations by doing so, which is why we thought it would be cool to dress her in our men’s clothes.”

And the feeling seemed entirely mutual, give or take the odd minor footwear disagreement (!) designer Viktor Horsting added, “We asked her to wear high heels under her suit, but she refused.

Brill skills Elly!
