Paloma Faith chooses her stage outfits according to whether they give her ''confidence'' as she says her wardrobe is like ''armour''.
Paloma Faith uses clothes as ''armour''.
The 'Picking Up the Pieces' singer says getting dressed for a show gives her extra ''confidence'' for her performance and she believes fashion is ''empowering''.
She said: ''Fashion should be fun and empowering. It gives me confidence, it's like armour for me.
''I love getting dressed up before a show - psychologically it's really powerful.''
Paloma insists she has no fashion regrets and always ''forgives'' herself when she makes a sartorial mistake.
She said: ''Fashion regrets are bad for the soul. I forgive myself for the odd fashion faux pas.
''Don't put pressure on yourself to fit into certain clothes. Embrace who you are. Everything is a celebration of individuality now . I'm excited by it - it's my time.''
The 32-year-old singer favours vintage stores and looks to Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Monroe for style inspiration.
She said: ''Clothes from the 50s suited my shape better.''
