This weekend it was the legendary Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, which was celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in style. We couldn’t help noticing that this year there were just as many girls rocking out onstage as there were boys – Taylor Momsen drew crowds performing with her band The Pretty Reckless, head-to-toe in sexy black leather and stockings, while elsewhere at the festival Ellie Goulding sang her heart out with an acoustic guitar and Lykke Li performed looking darkly mysterious in a leather cape-top.
I don’t know about you but I couldn’t be prouder that we have so many exciting, talented and fashion-forward female musicians at the moment. I’m coming over all riot grrl.
Above is a gallery of our favourite female musicians at the moment, who are combining a love of fashion and dressing up with a geniune talent and passion for creating music. Some are new faces, some are old favourites — naturally Florence Welch is there, for doing it Stevie Nicks-style in dramatic floaty gowns and ethereal vintage. Check it out and feel the power.
