This dress is a true showstopper. It’s made by my friends [Connie Majoros and Fannie Chan] who run their own New York-based label, Femmes d’Armes. The first time I saw it on the hanger, my jaw dropped! I paired it with super cheap Zara studded heels that I’ve had in my closet for years, some plastic bracelets I got at the Valentino party last year, and a crazy ring from Topshop. I love to mix high and low. For the hair, we wanted to give it a messy boho vibe to balance out the glamorous feel of the dress, so for the first time ever, I tried a braid. At first we added a hair piece, but it made the braid so long and full it felt unnatural, so last minute right before I was due on stage, we whipped it out and threw together a new braid. I love how it turned out!
