Music and Fashion: M.I.A.

Another installment in the Music and Fashion series – where I share pictures of bands/singers/artists that happen to look great as well as sound great.

This time I’ve gone for Maya Arulpragasam aka. M.I.A. Her style is a bit like her music, a mix of new ideas drawing on traditional elements from around the world with a lot of attitude. Some of the Nu Rave style elements (like the jumpsuit in the first outfit and the polka dot Grammy awards outfit) can look a bit silly and overly shouty and have you seen her flashy website? I love my colours, as you know, but this is too in your face even for me! Overall, hers is obviously not a style many people could pull off, but I love looking at it! And I adore the blue maternity dress in the third picture – isn’t it amazing? I would wear it now, pregnant or not!

    I'm not usually a hip hop kinda girl, but she is so freaking cool!

    I love her, she dresses for herself and does her own thing. Thought she was so cool rocking the Henry Holland at that awards show, much better than the model.
