Hello, world. We have a little present for you, and her name is Grimes. If you haven't already heard of the soft-spoken Canadian singer (whose real name is Claire Boucher), she's quickly making her mark in the music and fashion scene thanks to opening for big names like Lykke Li and releasing one stylish and catchy impossible-not-to-share-with-everyone-you-know music video after another. (See: "Vanessa" and "Crystal Ball.") She's just released her third electro-synth album, Visions, in February, and The New York Times caught up with her not only to talk music, but—GASP—style. We were pleasantly surprised by her humble approach to the fashion world, and we want to share EVERYTHING we learned with y'all. So let's go!
