Natasha Khan, An Appreciation


I somehow lost the plot and didn’t get tickets to the sold-out Bat for Lashes show at Bowery Ballroom this Thursday. While I’m blue about missing the performance, I have a feeling that we’ll all be seeing lots more of Natasha Khan in the near future—she’s always seemed a shoe-in for fashion favoritism to me. For one, the Anglo-Pakistani songbird is drop-dead gorgeous. Then there’s the fact that she combines Björk’s penchant for face paint, braids, and headgear with Stevie Nicks’ knack for wearing caftans. Anna Sui, who knows a thing or two about music, was listening to Bat for Lashes before her Fall show, and Kanye is a fan of her influential “What’s a Girl to Do?” video. And is it just us or don’t the dancers in her latest video, “Daniel,” look like they walked off of Junya Watanabe’s Fall 2008 runway?
