Paloma Faith - Paloma Faith's fashion armour

Paloma Faith uses clothes as ''armour''.

The 'Picking Up the Pieces' singer says getting dressed for a show gives her extra ''confidence'' for her performance and she believes fashion is ''empowering''.

She said: ''Fashion should be fun and empowering. It gives me confidence, it's like armour for me.

''I love getting dressed up before a show - psychologically it's really powerful.''

Paloma insists she has no fashion regrets and always ''forgives'' herself when she makes a sartorial mistake.

She said: ''Fashion regrets are bad for the soul. I forgive myself for the odd fashion faux pas.

''Don't put pressure on yourself to fit into certain clothes. Embrace who you are. Everything is a celebration of individuality now . I'm excited by it - it's my time.''

The 32-year-old singer favours vintage stores and looks to Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Monroe for style inspiration.

She said: ''Clothes from the 50s suited my shape better.''
