do you want the truth or something beautiful?

in this case, i'll take the beauty.

for those of you who don't know, this is Paloma Faith. she's my newest style icon. LOVE HER. she is  a British actress and singer/songwriter, who's first album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? came out earlier this year. not only is she an absolute doll, with quirky dark carnival style that i love.. 

her album ROCKS. it's freakin' awesome. you might recognize one track "stone cold sober" as used by Rimmel London in a few commercials. and you may recognize her as Sally in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, the devil's girlfriend- and even cooler if you haven't seen it, the devil is played by none other than Tom Waits, another on my very short list of faves.

she's beautiful, talented, smart, and witty. Tim Burton would love this girl.

we all know i adore a redhead.

she rocks retro looks, statement hats, and Westwood shoes. even love the font in on this. and she loves balloons!

and yes. this is a mirror dress. amazing.

Well, I want to discover Paloma Faith now, I'm gonna check it out. You know, I'm a huuuuuge fan of Tom Waits too, for me he's an incredible poet and a great musician, and I don't forget his wife Katlin Brennan, without her, there wouldn't be Tom Waits !

WOoooow Thanks for introducing us to her She does look like a strong and independent woman with a devil may care attitude. I am going to go look up everything about her right now. And how gorgeous and genius is that mirror dress.

Love from Toronto, Canada
