STYLE ICON: CLAIRE BOUCHER

Claire Boucher of Grimes has been on my style radar for quite a while now. With her fringe cut slightly too short and her ever-changing hair colour, her striking features and quirky style are how I imagine Tavi Gevinson to look in five years time.

Born in Vancouver in 1988, Claire, (better known as Grimes), started experimenting with music whilst at university, and since releasing her first album in 2010, her Japanese inspired electronic sound and alternative appearance have gained lots of hype in both the music and fashion worlds. Isn't it interesting how "anti-fashion" statements become fashionable?   

I personally love her grungy look. Her part-shaven hair suggests a polite "fuck-you" to modern society's vision of beauty, it reminds me of the look skinhead girls adopted in the 1960's. Cool-ness aside though, she really is very beautiful and most certainly a style icon of today. What do you think of her look?

  1. I definitely admire her boldness with her fashion and hair choices, the green rinse is so amazing. I also like how she lets one piece of clothing speak for itself rather than overloading on colour! xx

  4. I'm so obsessed with Grimes, she is perfect in every single way I can't explain. I was so close to going to see her live, so angry that I missed out! Her style and 'look' is perfection too. I see what you mean about the Tavi thing- Miss Gevinson is like, one of my favourite people ever, so I'd be super happy if she morphed into a sort of a Grimes-esque being with her own personal ~flava~ mixed in. Great post and choice of pictures!
