5 Artists who Moonlight as Style Icons below the Mainstream Radar
Annie Clark a.k.a. St. Vincent
St. Vincent is the ultimate heartbreaker in unrequited style love. This is partly because she is painfully gorgeous, with her Snow White-esque hair and complexion and lithe figure, but most especially because designer 3.1 Phillip Lim supplies much of her tour wardrobe (and keeps a special place [in the front row] of his NYFW shows especially for her). Annie Clark always keeps it classy in the style department, making her well-thought-out, feminine but not precious look a useful foil for some of her more heady material (or heavy, if you’ve heard her live covers of Big Black and The Pop Group). Add to her credit a recent collaboration and subsequent tour withDavid Byrne, one of the most stylish eccentric suit aficionados in alterna-rock history, and Annie Clark is ineffaceably the holy grail of indie rock star-meets-style icon.
