See Paloma Faith’s Custom-Made Cirque Du Soleil Dress

Paloma Faith’s outfit for the opening night of performance company Cirque Du Soleils’s latest show Totem was never going to be anything less than fabulously OTT. The kitsch singer ruled the red carpet in a totem-inspired couture gown by fledgling fashion designer Alex Noble, who also creates costumes for the dramatic shows. While his name may still be under the style radar, after making his catwalk debut at London Fashion Week AW11 Alex has worked with pop heavyweights Lady Gaga and Florence Welch, as well as designing this multicoloured fishtail gown especially for Ms Faith.

If anyone can pull off such a wow-factor frock it’s Paloma Faith, who did it justice with blue velvet elbow-length gloves, Wonder Woman-style double cuffs and Dolce & Gabbana hairslides. Oh, and tribal-inspired face paint! We wouldn’t have expected anything less. GG
