It’s a special day when a girl is offered her pick of designer clothes and the chance to meet her idols from the music and fashion industries, and 18-year-old British singer-songwriter Pixie Lott didn’t have to wait long, with two number-one singles in the U.K. and a gold album in the space of six months, and then a headline gig at the Fendi O’ party in Paris to wrap up fashion week.

A squeaky-clean pop princess and new kid on the block, Lott’s debut album, Turn It Up, is yet to be released in the U.S., but guests including Katy Perry, Sean Lennon and Prince discovered the force of her smoky pipes and signature style. Accessorizing a Fendi gown with her trademark bangles and headband, Lott looked elegant on stage, but still herself. She wore the smoky eye makeup that inspired a tutorial of its own by YouTube guru Lauren Luke, though not the thigh-skimming lengths she usually favors. “I’ll just wear my shorts and dresses with tights or leggings in winter,” she shrugged. Her hits “Mama Do” and “Boys and Girls” finally succeeded in convincing the fashion pack to dance in what little space it had.
