Florence and the Machine

Florence and the Machine

Ever since Florence Welch was touted as the one to watch for 2009 we’ve not been able to keep eyes off the stunning red headed songstress. 

And who can blame us? What with a vocal talent that stops you in your tracks as well as an uber cool style that makes us ache with wardrobe envy (we were especially green when Topshop designed custom made outfits for her Glasto and Blur gigs

Performing as Florence and the Machine, she’s created such a buzz this year that she nabbed a Critic’s Choice award at the Brits before even releasing an album. 

So the arrival of Lungs on Monday was definitely an event worth celebrating, And Florence did so in style at the album launch party on Tuesday night at London's Rivoli Ballroom.

Florence wowed the 600 strong crowd (including Daisy Lowe and Nick Grimshaw) with a stunning performance of eleven songs including the first single off her album, Drumming Song. Dressed in a black chiffon number from Relik spilt up to the torso to reveal black sequin hot pants, Florence showed off her outrageously long legs to the max. Hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it!
