One of the best ways to fuse fashion and music together is on the stage. From Madonna to Rihanna, there’s nothing better than seeing an awesome singer rock a killer outfit. But even if you’ll never be a famous musician or costume designer, you’ve got a chance to play one.
If you submit a design today, you have a chance to dress Florence of Florence and the Machine for their upcoming Terminal 5 concert in New York. Florence will pick the winner, who will get transportation to New York, two nights’ accommodation at the Soho House, $500 cash and a ticket to see Florence and the Machine perform not to mention a signed copy of Lungs and a chance to hang with the band backstage. You have the rest of the day to submit a design, and voting starts tomorrow. In the meantime, we’ve pulled some of our favorite lady singers’ crazy outfits of the past to give you some inspiration.
