Iceland’s Fashionable Princess

This story is going to sound weird from the get go.  And I am okay with that.  When you consider the central figure it seems fitting.

So,  the other day I was in Whole Foods and I was talking to the butcher about Iceland (I told you this was going to get weird…) and he made a comment about how they’ve had a hard time recovering from their  economic crisis,  especially considering their biggest export is Björk.  I laughed.  The butcher laughed.  Lukus laughed.  We all laughed.  (To be clear,  we were not laughing at Iceland’s economic difficulties,  but at the thought of Björk being a major export)

Later that evening,  while perusing my normal internet haunts,  I stumbled onto an article on Björk’s just released new album,  Biophilia.

That’s when I realized it was a sign.  It was a sign that I needed to share some of the most memorable fashion moments from the always-eccentric Björk.

Wait—are you telling me you are only familiar with the notorious swan dress??

But there is so much more to Björk that makes her a fashion icon!  After all,  it wasn’t for just anyone that Alexander McQueen designed a jeweled facial mask.  So yes,  I meant it when I called her a fashion icon.

You with me?

Okay,  then sit back and enjoy the sweet stylings of Iceland’s pop princess…

What do you think of  Björk’s wild wardrobe?

  1. Haha, after years of having complete strangers come up to me and tell me that I looked like Bjork {and cringing to the depth of my soul} I have made peace with it. She has nice skin, that much I will say :)

  2. I didn’t know. Oh how I love the Bjork. Wow. She’s amazing. My fave. The purple flowerhead. Gorg.

  3. I don’t like these ;(

  4. Adore her… I’m actually a long time Björk fan, so thanks for sharing these images.

  5. These are really way out there.

  6. Got to say, I never get where she’s coming from, but I admire her guts to try just about anything. I do love the purple headdress thing: looks like it’s straight out of four-year-old girl’s fantasy.

  7. I do love her music and let just say….that girl has a very high self-esteem and no matter how wild she goes she always draws attention….good or bad.

  8. she is strange sometimes but I just love her. I think shes gorgeous!
