The 2021 Victoires de la Musique (the French equivalent to the Grammys) took place on Friday (February 12) at La Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt in France.
Yseult: Before her performance, the singer picked up the Female Revelation of the Year Award, which sounds like a Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award.
Yseult wore a custom Mugler beige segmented jacket over a custom Mugler nude illusion bodysuit and sheer slingbacks by Casey Cadwallader.
I love the bold unapologetic nature of the look.
Admittedly, I don’t know much about Yseult, but I can tell she’s a force to be reckoned with as she has confidence oozing from every pore.
If this look is giving a mild case of déjà vu, that’s because Chris Lee has worn this same blazer in white, and Dua Lipa wore the illusion bodysuit during her ‘Studio 2054’ concert, but hers was embellished with crystals.
Yseult removed the jacket and switch up her hair for her performance.
Vanessa Paradis: The singer-actress stayed true to form wearing a look from the Chanel Fall 2020 Haute Couture collection.
As beautiful as this classic blazer and skirt-pants hybrid trousers are, I would’ve loved to have seen the rocker inside Vanessa come out to play at this event.
Perhaps it didn’t suit the mood of the song she was performing.
Marie-Pierra Kakoma: The Congolese-Belgian singer known professionally as Lous and the Yakuza, was nominated in the Best New Artist category.
She wore a custom Louis Vuitton red high neck gown which is the kind of dress that is destined to stand out owing to the magnificence of its utter simplicity, making a statement in the subtlest of ways.
While I am always drawn to drama, I can also much appreciate this relaxed silhouette which offers an effortless fluidity that lets the ruby-red colour palette shine.
The look is even more magical with the African headdress.
Lou Doillon: One of the most moving moments of the night was the touching tribute Lou addressed her to her mother Jane Birkin, leaving the singer and the rest of the crowd on the verge of tears.
Standing out in one of the most colourful suits we have seen this year, I look at the cut of this Gucci Pre-Fall 2021 suit, and it’s clear to see how the statement silhouettes of the 1970s have inspired Alessandro Michele.
The jacket boasts exaggerated wide lapels for an unashamedly retro feel which is amped up especially when worn with the matching flared trousers.
