Style shrinks: Our experts analyse Paloma Faith's bombshell look at Brighton Pride

 

The sunglasses

Rebecca Gonsalves: Modernist, monochrome and feline fine – these put other sunglasses in the shade.

Hugh Montgomery: If 'The Far Side' did femme fatales…

The shoes

Rebecca: Considering her past transgressions, a modest stacked platform is not the deadliest of sins – this is a stage-worthy ensemble after all.

Hugh: Remember when she wore platforms to run with the Olympic torch last year, in fact? A truly towering pop figure.

The outfit

Rebecca: Figure-hugging but not bandage-binding, a loose Lurex-y top and high-waisted pencil skirt allows Faith to bust a few moves on stage.

Hugh: Again, nice but atypically uneccentric. Yours, With Concern.

The hair

Rebecca: A relatively low-maintenance turn from the singer, whose look is usually more Carmen Miranda than Marilyn Monroe.

Hugh: Paloma does Marilyn OK, but this is minor-league when it comes to Pride fancy dress – we'd have gone for 'Turn Back Time'/body stocking-era Cher.
