roisin murphy on gob-dropping clothes

-------

In the crowd for the Salvatore Ferragamo Evolving Legend 1928-2008 party at Milan’s Triennale Design Museum yesterday, we spotted Róisín Murphy, shimmering in a gold lamé dress by Romanian designer Rozalb de Mura. The singer turned out to be more of a fashionista than we expected. Besides the edgy dress, she had done her very own “whoosh” hairdo and had clear ideas on her fashion likes and dislikes. “I like the big names like Gucci, Versace, Dolce,” Murphy told us. “As they are the most successful brands about, you always know you’re getting the best tailoring and quality around. But honestly, I prefer auteur designers like Martin Margiela. His strong silhouettes make the gobs drop on my fans [ed.'s translation for non-Brits: make fans' jaws drop], and yet they’re loose and easy to wear. Even though I also like Vivienne Westwood, it’s not easy singing in one of her corsets!”
