Check Out Kimbra's Thrift-Obsessed Style

It's hard to talk about New Zealand-born pop sensation Kimbra without mentioning the Gotye collaboration that brought her worldwide fame — you know, the one that's still playing in every coffee house and gas station across the world. But Kimbra Lee Johnson is more than "Somebody That I Used To Know," and her solo album, Vows, mixes retro tunes with art-pop sensibilities and displays a bell-clear voice that more than stands on its own.
We caught up with Ms. Johnson in L.A. to talk about her thrift-loving style, where she gets her inspiration, and what she thinks of her multiplatinum hit these days. Along the way, Kimbra dropped some style tips, and we learned what New Zealand bands we've been missing out on.
