While I'd seen her name and visage bandied about the internet quite a bit, it was this profile of her in the New Yorker which lead me to seek out (and fall in love with!) Paloma Faith's music. And let's talk about her wonderful aesthetic!! Her style is not your run-of-the-mill "vintage" look, but a magnificently campy and theatrical take on retro glamour. It's certainly no surprise that she has a background in theatre and dance as well as music.
I think she also just comes across as such a smart, cool and thoroughly charming human being :) While there are plenty of celebrities whom I adore, there are very few I'd actually want to meet and hang out with, you know? But watching Paloma's interview clips and clever "Paloma on Paloma" series on YouTube, I was struck by how warm and intelligent she seems. What a star!
