    Unearthly beautiful, charmingly irreverent, lyrically blessed, oh, and and dating rock royalty—all are ways of describing model-turned-musician Charlotte Kemp Muhl. While she's not often in one city (let alone country) for any discernible length of time, we had the distinct pleasure to nab some one-on-one time with the fresh faced ingenue, with an afternoon browse-fest—the lovely New York lady took us to her top three spots for buying the unique (mainly vintage) clothes and accessories that have made her a true style star; Not many people can mix Victorian with a necklace made from raccoon penis-bone, now can they? As we handled taxidermy eye balls at the Evolution Store and sifted through 200-year-old dresses at Exquisite Costume, the 23 year old girl, who now spends less time behind the camera and more time singing with boyfriend Sean Lennon in their band, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, talked sex, fashion, and he future. Some of her musings included her love of vintage shoes, an obsession that's kinda hard to sate with her "giant feet," or, on spying a velvet, military coat, acknowledging that Lennon would be fearful to give too great a nod to the "whole Sergeant Pepper thing." Peep the amazing, sexy and sensual photos by Altamira NYC's Craig Arend, as we galavanted around SoHo, bags (slowly accumulating) in hand—and dont forgot to read the complete interview with the stunning songstress...she starts talking dirty before you know it.
