I do love a little bit of Paloma! Here she is at the launch of the Indesit Party Launderette, and below, in the front row of the Ashish show (dailymail.co.uk):

Paloma gives an interview to the You supplement in the Mail on Sunday (dailymail.co.uk):

Quote:
My body and I: Paloma Faith

The 24-year-old singer-songwriter lives in Camden, North London.

What is your daily beauty routine?

I have very sensitive skin and easily come out in rashes, so I try to keep it very simple: I use Dove soap on my face, then a cleanser and face cream from the Body Shop’s Aloe range. Then I moisturise all over with Kiehl’s Creme de Corps. I also love Kiehl’s haircare products and have used its Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo for years as it doesn’t make my hair colour fade.

Your make-up bag staples?

The Body Shop’s Moisture Foundation, then for everything else I’m devoted to Mac – I use its eyeliners, lipsticks, mascaras and false eyelashes, and love all the bright funky colours. For nail varnish, I’m a fan of OPI.

Desert-island beauty essential?

Lucas Papaw salve – I always have a tube with me.

What makes you feel glamorous?

Sexy lingerie from Agent Provocateur – I love its Seam & Heel Hold Ups.

Where do you love to shop?

Vintage shops, such as Blackout II, Beyond Retro, Rokit and The Girl Can’t Help It in London – the clothes are so beautifully made, nothing compares to them. I tend to buy basics from high-street chains such as Zara, H&M and New Look and then jazz them
up with vintage pieces.

Who are your favourite designers?

Ashish – I adore all the sequins – and Louis Vuitton as its stuff is so classic. When it
comes to shoes, I either go to eveninglady.co.uk or Nitelife for its amazing platformed stilettos – they’re my signature look.

What beauty treatments do you go for?

I feel really guilty if I have facials or massages, but I do treat myself to trips to WAH Nails in Dalston, East London, where they do amazing nail art.

Who takes care of your hair?

Nicola Clark at John Frieda has coloured my hair for years. When I need a cut I usually head to Kissable on Soho’s Brewer Street. I like Japanese hairdressers as they know how to cut my super-thick hair.

What would I find in your fridge?

Parma ham, chorizo, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes – nice bits and pieces that you can pick at.

What would be your last meal on earth?

I do this amazing chicken in the oven with jerk seasoning, wine, garlic and parsley, which I serve with home-made chips and chickpeas. For pudding, I’d have the ice cream from Gelato Mio in Holland Park.

How do you relax?

I’m obsessed with the cinema – I’ve been known to go two or three times a week. Film is definitely my favourite art form. I also love to bake cakes – I’m very domestic!

How do you stay in shape?

I feel like a hamster if I exercise in a gym, so I try to work out outside. I’ve got a fantastic personal trainer called Hayley who keeps me on my toes – she has me running and boxing, and doing lots of stomach-toning exercises.

Paloma talks about her looks (guardian.co.uk):

Quote:
What I see in the mirror

I think the mirror can be a dangerous place and my advice is, screw having a fat mirror. I always buy a thin mirror – the narrowest and tallest I can find. Ignorance is bliss. I never look at my whole reflection, either. When I trained as a dancer, we spent the three-year course looking at ourselves in the mirror and it makes you very self-critical, which is bad for you. So now I look from the neck down to see if my outfit looks right, or at my eyes when I'm doing my eye liner.

My best features are my lips – they are full and I'm always trying to make them even bigger with lip liner. My hair is nice because it's thick. I'm proud of my eyebrows – everyone writes on YouTube how big they are and they are like caterpillars. I am so pleased my mum never let me pluck them as a teenager.

I'm not happy with my height – I'm 5ft 4in – which is why I wear stilettos. I'd never have surgery. My mum had cancer and had to have her breast operated on, and I don't know why people do that out of choice when they haven't even got an illness. It's horrible. People argue, "Oh it's because I felt so bad about myself." The thing is, we all have those feelings. I have days when I'm like, "Oh my God, I'm flat-chested and I've a massive bum – I'm like a pear." But I think we need to get perspective and realise that what makes us beautiful on a physical level is probably an irregularity. You get what you're given and I don't think being conventionally beautiful is a good thing to aim for.

The trailer for Chalet Girl featured her song "Upside Down." After reading the articles here and listening to that song (which is very addicting), I'm off to find her other stuff.

I like her unique style and take on the music industry. She seems very independent minded!
