FYI: Metric front-woman Emily Haines is the perfect synth pop starlet. For starters, she boasts that kind of New Wave-friendly voice that makes one really feel things, in addition to having great grungy hair. A few years ago, no one,gucci 長財布, including the fashion world, could escape Metric’s smash hit “Help I’m Alive.” The Canadian-based band’s latest effort, the aptly titled Synthetica, is a sweeping, whimsical album replete with majorly catchy hooks and gym playlist-friendly bangers. Last week in Miami, the VH1 You Oughta Know band headlined the insanity that was the Scope/VH1 party, alongside a dizzying set from fashion favorite musical duo DJ Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe. ELLE.com caught up with Haines pre-show at the VH1 Lounge, where she filled us in on her cat nap routine and her experience of being, you know, a sought-after emerging style icon.
ELLE: Walk me through your regular beauty regimenaka, why are you so hot?
Emily Haines: Lots of ginger tea and lots of really hot steamy showers, because it’s great for your throat and your skin. I’m a big fan of oxygen treatments for the skin. And honey is a great thing to put on your face.
ELLE: Do you have any pre-show rituals?
EH: I have my own sort of routine. We’ve been playing live for over ten years, and the four of us have fallen into a rhythm of just hanging out before the show. If you’ve been to a Metric show, you know it’s a very high-energy event. I like to be pretty mellow before. It’s more about energy conservationI’m known to be asleep five minutes before a show starts.
ELLE: The fashion world has really embraced you. Who has hooked it up for you the most?
EH: I’ve been working with Margiela, which has been really great. They asked me to be a part of their H&M collab, and they flew me to Paris and I did a shoot with them. In our video for “Breathing Under Water,” you can see a lot of the great Margiela pieces.
ELLE: So, do you consider yourself to be a fashion chick?
EH: You kind of have to be. You have to take control of it and embrace it, or it’s going to control and stifle you. I think rock ‘n’ roll and show biz are great outlets for being able to express yourself in what you wear. Femininity is a complex thing. Over the years, I feel like I’ve really refined my style to express my feminine strength. You don’t have to always be tough, you know?
ELLE: What’s your off-stage look,コーチ 財布 新作 2013?
EH: Off-stage, I’m more inclined to be a tomboy. I can’t really deal with the weekend warriors when it comes to fashion. Living in New York, it’s a bit over the topI guess if that’s your performance, then you can really go for it. I feel fortunate that I have the outlet of the stage to really do it up, and in my personal life I’m just a bit more chill.
ELLE: If you could raid your style icon’s closet, who would it be?
EH: Probably Mick Jagger. Or Iggy! Because all I would have to wear would be a pair of jeans.
ELLE: What’s your favorite fashion-y music video of all time?
EH: It would have to be “Thriller,” right? Michael would be the other closet I’d raid.
