Florence Welch inspired by stylist

Florence Welch's stylist says the dramatic tiered Alexander McQueen dress the singer wore to the 2012 Met Ball is her top look.

The Florence and the Machine singer is instantly recognisable with her flame-coloured locks and ethereal sense of style. She works closely with Aldene Johnson to ensure she always stay ahead in the fashion stakes. Both women have a great instinct for choosing the right clothes, so they are happy to collaborate.

"After four years of working with Florence, I can't even begin to describe how much we have influenced each other," Aldene told British magazine Grazia. "I'll bring a selection of my favourite pieces to Florence to fit, and from there we'll decide what works best. The dramatic tiered tulle Alexander McQueen look for the Met Ball 2012 is top of the list."

Aldene went on to reveal who has influenced her wardrobe. She singled out a famous fashion editor and an iconic Hollywood star as her style inspirations.

"My favourites are Diana Vreeland and Diane Keaton," she shared. "I'm draw to the '70s, and elements peek through in my style. I love a classic retro colour palette of black, creams and brown. I'm also drawn to the '20s and '30s. My look is a mix of these, with a flare of androgyny."

Florence is renowned for her onstage style, and Aldene has some top tips for anyone attending a music festival this year.

"A hat adds style to your outfit and is practical come rain or shine," she advised.
