Wacky singer Bjork has been a fashion victim since childhood - she started borrowing her grandfather's clothes when she was just eight.

The Icelandic star hit headlines when she wore a bizarre swan outfit to the 2001 Academy Awards, but she confesses it was just one of a long list of fashion faux pas.

She says, "I guess I was a bit of a lost case from the start really, I started really young dressing up in my grandfather's clothes.

"I remember my grandpa had like woolen really thick pants, you know, and I cut off the legs by the knee and then they were long for me.

"I must have been 8 or 9 or something."
