Our fabulous fashion designer friend Mark recently told us his current favourite song is Tightrope by Janelle Monáe (featuring Big Boi) and at first, we thought it sounded a bit like the kind of thing we might be yelling at the teens to turn down. But when we heard it, we immediately loved everything about it. Not only do we love the sound, it looks amazing and makes us want to rush out and buy a black suit, white shirt, bow tie (although that might be taking it a bit too far!) and black and white brogues. Don't even get us started on the fabulous dancing.
And isn't it great to see a gorgeous girl with some clothes on? I know I am in danger of sounding like someones nan, but the younger generation are in desperate need of some stylish (fully clothed) style icons.
The androgynous look is going to be big for Autumn/Winter 2011/12 and we can't wait.
