Despite gracing the pages of Vogue and signing to Next Model Management, artist VV Brown is far from an extravagant fashionista. "Going into the second album, I've kind of fallen in love with minimalism. I'm enjoying bold shapes, strong lines, rather than feathers and colors, which is what I was doing two years ago on the first album."
VV's embrace of vintage clothing throughout her career began out of necessity -- easier on the bank account -- and she says that as her style matured she adopted classic items into her wardrobe "because I could find much better things in vintage shops than in mainstream shops."
VV opted for fake vampy nails which happen to perfectly match her outfit.
VV purchased this hooded velvet cape at Urban Outfitters.
VV sported black brogue-ish flats with her maroon look.
And of course, the velvet hood made the cape.
VV's makeup was minimal yet bold with pops of color on the mouth and eyes.
what's in V V 's purse?
"I have my iPad which I just bought. I've been doing a lot of playing around with it and figuring out the new camera- there's an HD camera in there, and I went to the protests yesterday in New York and it was a bit ironic because I was going around with my iPad taking pictures of everything... but it came to use, I got some great pictures down there."
"I also have some starburst sweets... well you know it's nice to have a sweet now and then."
"I have some Tropicana orange juice which I'm completely obsessed with. I love orange juice. I'm bit like Keenan and Kel - I don't know if you ever watched that, "Who loves orange soda? I love orange soda! I dooo!" So it's a bit like that except it's organge juice."
"I tend to travel a lot - we're always in a different country most of the time, so I always seem to have my passport in my bag. It's a London British passport."
"It's my little lomo, to take pictures when I'm about."
Louis Vuitton Purse
"I treated myself to my Louis Vuitton bag when I went to number one in France. When the album hit number one I was like, I am gonna treat myself to a French Louis Vuitton classic blue bag as a sort of token of 'we got to number one!'"
