Charli XCX wears some of my very favorite stage costumery in teasy pop music today. She really has nailed all the various outfits to attract the attention of a demographic that may not particularly be suited to her music. Sometimes she's the cheerleader or the naughty schoolgirl or the wayward lady of the evening, or this particular get up she wore while performing in London. Let's just label it heaven for Uncle Bill. A bikini top and a short skirt to match with her flirty show performance. Not quite as raunchy as Miley, not quite as coquettish as Ariana. This is sort of the sweet spot.
The boon in visual wonderments from contemporary pop music certainly can't be overestimated. It's been huge. And when you realize millions of idolizing young women are imitating their heroes, well, I believe this is called the domino of awesomeness effect. Keep up the good work Charli. I'll be watching, from the front row, kind of peering up but pretending not to. Enjoy.
