Style Beat: Little Joy
The band is on the brink of rock stardom, and Scott Sternberg provides the wardrobe


Inside the sunny Band of Outsiders studio in Los Angeles, Little Joy singer Binki Shapiro chats with designer Scott Sternberg as he puts the finishing touches on the tuxedo he’s making for her summer tour. She’s long been a fan of Sternberg’s menswear-inspired women’s line, Boy, and, as of late, he’s been grooving nonstop to the bossa nova beat of the band’s self-titled debut CD. “When I first heard Binki, she conjured images of those rad ‘girls in the band,’ like Nico from the Velvet Underground. One of the guys, yet uniquely feminine,” Sternberg says. After performing in heels left her feeling nervous onstage, Shapiro reverted to a jeans, T-shirt, and sneakers uniform. “It’s hard to look nice when you’re in a van with a bunch of sweaty boys,” she says, referring to the rest of Little Joy: Los Hermanos’ Rodrigo Amarante and her boyfriend, Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti. But on the verge of a 17-city tour, Shapiro admits she’s due for an upgrade. “It’s rare that I find something that’s sexy but also makes me feel confident,” she says, admitting that the tuxedo—a brushed flannel pant with a grosgrain stripe, darted tailcoat, and bibbed silk organza blouse—has sparked all sorts of fantasies. “The first time I tried it on, I imagined us all wearing suits onstage with confetti pouring over us after an amazing show!” Dare to dream.

Before discovering Little Joy, Binki first caught my eye in Beck's videos for The Information.

I was supposed to go see her dj at kenmare but it was too crowded because she's blowing up so much so fast. I couldnt get in and i'm a bigshot so imagine how the little people feel? Plus what is she wearing I heard Zadig & Voltaire are sending her free stuff cuz she's their muse or something

I'm so glad she has a thread. I have admired her and her style for so long (i.e., when she started dating Fabrizio and I wondered who the effortlessly beautiful and cool girl was).

A little bit of trivia about Binki: Her real name is Jordana Shapiro, she's from Los Angeles, and she played Brittany Weston, Eliot and Nancy's daughter, on Thirtysomething. Videogum.com has a screencap:
