SIGNING ON: Paloma Faith, the British singer-songwriter who’s known for her glam, retro style and soulful sound, has signed with Next Model Management. Faith is no stranger to the fashion industry — she performed at Burberry Prorsum’s fall show in London in February and is a regular in the front row of such runway shows as Vivienne Westwood, Max Mara and Armani Privé. The flame-haired artist is also known for wearing standout ensembles both on and off stage, often inspired by the Forties and Fifties.
Faith released her third album, “A Perfect Contradiction,” last month, and its first single, “Can’t Rely on You,” features Pharrell Williams, who cowrote and produced the track.
