She’s just a cool, hippy chic girl living in Brighton – which seems to suit her. She declined to go to stageContinue reading

I love Pink’s look in the video U + Ur Hand. I think she looks amazing and iconic. Pink might not have the most beautiful face in the world but that has nothing to do with her style power. Pink’s always has such a strong look and you always remember her. She’s done this fromContinue reading
