Paloma Faith in The Girl Can't Help It!

Apparently Paloma Faith caused quite a scene at Charles Finch & Chanel pre-BAFTA dinner last month. Reporting for Harpers Bazaar Frances Wasem wrote how - " it was Paloma Faith who made the most grand entrance of all in a theatrical wide-brim hat and matching dress. You have to love her eccentric, wonderful avant-garde style."

Her hat was from The Girl Can't Help it, here in Alfies. It seemed the hat was an almost dangerous accessory! - the things girls go through for fashion!

"Her hat however was a bit a hindrance in the very overcrowded drawing room - at one point hitting the antiques above the fireplace and almost knocking them over, not to mention the moment I held my breath as her hat almost set light with a light brush of the candles. Entirely unfazed, she dazzled everyone with her bright wide smile and charming manner.
