Whether she's performing for the A-list at Silencio or wandering down a nondescript alleyway, Chrysta Bell knows how to turn heads. It's no surprise that this bombshell chanteuse moonlights as the longtime muse of filmmaker and visual artist David Lynch, who produced her 2011 solo debut, This Train.
Introducing Bell at a recent party, Lynch said, "Sometimes people dream, or sometimes people walk down the street and wonder: What is that shape? What is that sound?" Inquiring minds want to know. So, on a recent afternoon, we followed the Texas-raised, Oakland-based songstress to Temescal Alley, where she modeled four summer looks, and talked style icons, music inspirations, and secret beauty elixirs (ladies, it involves her breasts). Captivated? Let the bell ring!
