How do I look?: Alice Glass, Singer, age 20
Saturday 09 August 2008
My look is more grandmother's leftovers than heroin chic. Besides, I don't talk about drugs. This skirt was my grandma's. It's kind of too big on me. She didn't leave me any of her cool clothes from the Forties, just her cheap polyester stuff.
I bought this jacket at By the Pound in Toronto. It's one of those places where you look through a heap of stuff and sometimes you score. Everything's priced based on its weight. This was about $8 (about £4). People would look better if they didn't spend money on clothes. If they took what they found and just made the most of it, that'd be good.
I'm feminine: I'm wearing a skirt, I own a bra. I think that whole big blonde look has been taken over by transsexuals now. I'm a natural blonde, but that blonde hair, big tits idea of what men want, it's now really unfeminine.
I've had my hair like this since I was 13. Before that, it was much shorter. I had a Chelsea, which is bangs [a fringe] and then the rest is shaved off.
My tights are always ripped. I don't think it's possible to be on tour and own a pair of tights that aren't ripped. If I threw them out, I would just be buying a new pair of tights every day.
My top is from a sports store in Dalston. It's a sweater for little boys; I bought loads of them. Usually I wouldn't go shopping in London. I've been to a couple of vintage stores here and they're pretty pricey. Toronto is probably the best place for vintage clothes.
I must have come out of the womb wearing Converse.I just wear them until they rip and become sandals. I like the white ones when they get that awesome brown shade. I can't take anything valuable on tour; kids jump on stage and steal my stuff.
My make-up routine involves putting a bunch of black stuff on my eyes. I've worn lipstick before, but I'm not big into it. I don't really care or think about how I look. I wouldn't wear something I didn't like, but I've never had a real job so no one's ever told me how to dress.
