Besides the obvious fact that she's gorgeous and has a fantastic head of hair, she also has a great sense of style and an endless slew of jumpsuits! In 2009, Corinne Bailey Rae came to perform at Philadelphia's Theatre of the Living Arts (TLA, as we call it). It was a wonderful performance, it was set so intimate, it felt like you were among friends listening to one sing a lullaby for you. She was kind and fashionable, explaining why she wrote the songs she was about to sing and even made a joke about herself! I remember during the show, she was wearing a sleeveless, chambray jumpsuit with a striped bandeau underneath it. I loved that look so much, I walked into American Apparel a few days later to recreate it!

One of the things I most admire about her style, is that she isn't afraid to keep it classy. Something that i've noticed about other female celebrities, is that after they become more mainstream, they tend to "sex" up their looks because that is what their managers, or public relations person wants them to do for ratings. Not this lady! Corinne is very true to herself and her music reflects that. Like I've mentioned before [on the blog], there are ways to dress sexy without showing off your goods. Confidence exudes sexy, and miss Rae has that down pact, which is why she's a Tastemaker!
