One of fashion’s favorite musical muses, Florence Welch, has earned herself the January 2012 cover for UK Vogue. The redhead was captured by none other than Mario Testino in a 70′s-inspired shoot, and was highly praised on the cover as “The Florence phenomenon.” The songstress, who’s wearing a voluminous, pleated Chloe gown, looks more lovely and elegant than how we usually see her. I especially love the contrast between the light blue on the cover and Florence’s vibrant hair.
Inside the mag, she wears all sorts of floaty gowns and flower garland-type headbands, which again may surprise as the pictures are very ethereal. However, looking different is not always a bad thing. Florence proves this with her gentle beauty. She talks about what it was like to win Karl Lagerfeld over and also introduces her family, who all work with her award-winning Machine: from managing her schedule to driving the tour bus.
Florence Welch has done other events in fashion and also has been recognized for her fashion credentials, and it’s not a surprise that she landed the cover (UK Vogue). Welch has performed on the catwalk for Chanel and was named the “perfect Gucci girl” by Frida Giannini. ”I was thinking of a strong and somewhat mysterious muse. Florence is that kind of woman,” Giannini said. Florence even calls on the likes of Givenchy, Balmain and Alexander McQueen for her red carpet style.
No matter what she is wearing or where she is performing, Florence Welch is a very talented gal, whether it’s in fashion or in her music, and this is just the beginning of her success. Good for you, Florence!Tags: chloe, Florence and the Machines, Florence Welch, Frida Giannini, Gucci girl, karl lagerfeld, vogue, vogue Uk, Vogue UK January 2012
