Florence Welch of ‘Florence and the Machine’ performed barefoot at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, on Wednesday evening.

Frida Giannini’s muse wore a look from the Gucci Fall 2012 collection, which we’ve seen her wear once before.

On this occasion her glamorous black-and-burgundy gown with knife-pleated ruffles and an asymmetrical neckline had a feather-and-floral print.

As always the gown is as dramatic as her performance.

Florence Welch and her band Florence + the Machine kick-start their ‘Ceremonials’ tour this evening in Boston, US, which will see them visit North America, then Europe.

For the second year in a row, Gucci will provide their number one girl with stunning gowns to wear on stage from the Fall/Winter collection designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini.

Giannini said, “Seeing Florence evolve as an artist since her last tour has been truly inspiring, and I was delighted to work with her on this new wardrobe. For her on-stage style, we wanted to create a romantic yet modern aesthetic for Florence to interpret with her dark glamour and dramatic sensuality. I am looking forward to the show as Florence always puts an enchanting energy into every performance.”

Welch added, “I was immediately drawn to the drama of the collection when I first saw it on the runway. I am so grateful to Frida and feel very fortunate to be collaborating with Gucci once again.”

Florence Welch assured us once again of her love of prints while out and about in London yesterday.

The singer chose a pair of pleated trousers and an Oshibana print silk blouse from the Gucci Pre-Fall 2012 collection for her excursion.

I love how the soft colours match her skin tone, while the floral pansy print enhances the ethereal quality she is known for.

A beautiful pair of tan sandals and a bamboo top handle bag – also by Gucci – finish off the look.

What do you think of her ensemble?

Florence Welch attended the 2012 Venice Film Festival premiere for ‘Women’s Tales’ at Sala Darsena in Venice, Italy this evening.

My first reaction to her Miu Miu Fall 2012 look was total horror, but when I let it marinade for a few minutes, I found myself liking it.

Loud contrasting prints aren’t anything we haven’t seen before from Florence Welch, and considering she appears to live in kaftans and floaty gowns, I guess she needed to switch things up.

While this look doesn’t live up to the stunning gowns we’ve seen so far at this festival, I can’t see anyone else pulling off this look with such finesse.

Can you?

Miu Miu accessories including black pumps with a contrasting heel and a purple quilted clutch completed her look.

Love or loathe?

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine was in her element as she performed on day three of Leeds Festival at Bramham Park on Sunday in Leeds, England.

There is no denying that Florence’s dresses are as instrumental to her performances as her powerhouse voice.

On this occasion she opted for a dark gothic-like gown by Asian-British designer Marina Qureshi.

The Fall 2012 sheer cobweb-like long-sleeve black gown with feather accents on the skirt was worn with a black bodysuit.

Considering it was raining during the festival, I’m sure this helped to keep her warm.

Grey nail polish and wavy red locks completed her look.

Florence Welch, lead singer of Florence and the Machine, performed live at Grant Park in Chicago, as part of Day Three of Lollapalooza 2012 this past weekend.

The British singer premiered her band’s latest single ‘Breath of Life’ from the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ movie soundtrack while wearing a lovely long-sleeved tweed-print cuff beaded kaftan from Qatar-based fashion brand, Toujouri.

This beautiful red-and-black floral-patterned design from Toujouri’s Fall 2012 collection flowed fabulously on the singer’s lengthy frame.

The rest of her ensemble is kept rather simple, letting the kaftan gown stand out on its own.

I find that the colours and style aren’t quite summer-in-the-park; but other than that I think the singer pulls off the Toujouri design well as a very modern, artsy look.
