Yeah, her! Melanie Martinez - I was so rooting for her to win and she got pretty damn close, too - despite the rude diss from Christina Aguilera. But she went on to sign to a label and start producing her own really bad-ass tunes.
I think my favorite of hers is actually Dollhouse - and the video for it just kind of adds to her quirky charm.
I had noticed some "Lolita" elements to her style and personality, but I would never really have called her a Lolita. Until now that is:
Here she is wearing a full set from Angelic Pretty for her live music video. Sure, there's the lack of petti, but she's also hanging out in just socks, so it feels more like a Lolita after a long day out and kicking off all the un-comfy bits of an outfit.
I really do like the mix of pastel-goth inspired hair and wacky eyebrows with something pastel and cute. She rocks it in a way that no one else can.
I plan to keep an eye on her and see if she rocks anything more Lolita-esque attire. You guys will be the first to know!
