This Foxy Singer Talks Fashion & Failure

Photographed by Georgina Martin.
We're big fans of British songstress Louisa Rose Allen, a.k.a Foxes, whose style and songwriting skills have us captivated. Though her several electro-pop singles (including "Youth," "Beauty Queen," and "Holding Onto Heaven") show off her dynamic vocal chops, we have been praying to the music gods for a full-length release for some time. Finally, our prayers have been answered: Glorious, Foxes' debut album, reveals how her powerhouse vocals have matured over the past few years through anthems, synth-pop tracks, and ballads.
Although her musical talent is spellbinding, we're also smitten by Ms. Allen's colorful and creative outfits. Her penchant for retro style, cute crop tops, and pin-up looks have us looking forward to her next stage ensemble almost as much as her next album.
We caught up with Foxes on a sunny London day; here, she talks vintage shopping, learning from failure, and how she finds her happiness.
