Flame-haired singer/songwriter Florence Welch fronts the award-winning band, Florence and the Machine. She's also topped countless best dressed lists thanks to her truly electic style. The South London born musician has always loved fashion. She's spoken in the past about experimenting and having fun with clothes as a child - "playing dress up" while at school so she could escape to "the most outrageous places". Not much has changed, although she now counts Karl Lagerfeld as a close friend, was styled by Gucci for her last tour and has tasted Vogue editor, Anna Wintour's cooking (very nice apparently). Her style inspirations? Fellow female vocalists Stevie Nicks and Francoise Hardy who were both chanelling bohemian chic long before Sienna Miller or Kate Moss. See Florence's floaty-sleeved gowns, lace dresses pared with brogues and ankle socks and that ever-growing hat collection for references. A true British style icon.
