Hey Guys!

So while of course it’s fun to analyze the styles of ever fashionable Rihanna, Beyonce, and Zoe, sometimes we’ve gotta give props to the few lovely up and comers who have their own swag, but might not be splashed on the front of every blog and magazine.

This year, The Fashion Bomb has taken the liberty of naming our own Undercover Fashion Chic Queen of 2009:


Shingai Shoniwa.

The UK born lead singer and bassist for indie rock band the Noisettes has been blazing red carpets in London and beyond in a flurry of mind blowing ensembles. Let’s take a look:


The half Zimbabwean beauty makes a splash in high hemmed frocks and layered skirts, with silhouettes that highlight her small waist and long legs.



Boldly confident and daring, she embraces everything from ruffles to bright colors, and can even make fashion faux pas’ like exposed bras and glorified hot pants look haute.


A confirmed fashionista, Shingai works the snuff out of everything from Vivienne Westwood to John Pierre Braganza, all the while accenting her look-at-me outfits with neon nails and a flattering bouffant hairstyle.


And even rocked a variation of a David Koma dress Beyoncé wore earlier in the year, but added her own flourish with a bright red bolero and multicolored purse.


What do you think of this year’s undercover fashionista?

  1. That girls look is the business!!! Why wasn’t she nominated for Fashionista of the Year? She definitely is in the running! I love all her mini dresses!

  2. She is hot fire! I’m really digging her style! I like the fact that she has a different body type but she knows how to dress herself. She has so much style & swag! I love it.

  3. OMG—I LOVE this chick! I love how cute she is (love her natural hair especially—sadly I’m still a victim of the creamy crack) and how funky her style is. She is super lovely! I gotta pick up her band’s CD.

    Tolula Adeyemi is another fab British chick. One of my UK twitter friends is her stylist (her site is mariankihogo.com).

  4. Ahhh! There are no words to describe how FABULOUS she is! I love ALL the looks! She definitely should’ve been nominated for Fashionista of the Year… a style of her own. Not to mention, her complexion is GORGEOUS! Hope to see more of her in the future.
