    Sixteen, 17, 18, 193…Unfortunately, we wouldn't be lying if we told you that's the number of times we've hit replay on Oh Land's "Sun Of A Gun." The runaway hit from the stunning Danish singer (real name Nanna Øland Fabricius), is as infectious as her inspired fashion—part Bjork, part David Bowie, with an earthy elegance achieved with the help of designers like Balmain, Sonia Rykiel, and M Missoni—which has made her, willingly or not, a teen style icon along the lines of Kate Bosworth or Alexa Chung. Née the daughter of an opera singer mother and an organist father, the songstress was originally poised to be a ballerina before a slipped disc and spinal fracture eventually led her to cross the pond (Brooklyn to be exact). Ever since switching continents, Oh Land has enjoyed considerable success—Sony's Epic Records released the electro-pop artist's eponymous album in the U.S. more than a month ago; Her videos have since racked up almost 10 million plays on YouTube, perhaps abetted by musical turns on Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman. And in a move typical of the Copenhagen-bred crooner, she recently took up a 4-night residency at the Charles Bank Gallery—letting the L.E.S. P.B.R.-pounders in on her singular voice. Despite her hectic schedule, the Nordic beauty invited us to her art performance for some shots (no, not Akvavit) and conversation. We got the skinny on her style influences, the Big Apple experience, and her mini-playlist—plus some signature style snaps. We think it's time to scratch out "next" from The Next Big Thing.

Get The Most Out Of Your Face Primer

Primers, like Tinder users, tend to be hit-or-miss. To find the partner (er, primer) of your dreams, you’ve gotta do some background work. Before clicking "add to cart," consider what kind will benefit your skin type and exactly how you’d like it to enhance your complexion. Because, if you find the one (or perhaps a read
