When it comes to avant-garde fashion on the red carpet, FKA Twigs is leading the way.
At last night’s 2022 NME Awards in London, the “Tears in the Club” singer appeared in a creation by Liza Keane, a London-based sustainable designer who works with recycled, deadstock, and surplus materials. Twigs wore a minidress that originally debuted as part of the Central Saint Martins MA class of 2022 London Fashion Week show last month.
The dress featured a silver-and-blue skeletal print overlaid on a skin-clinging chest piece, as well as a sculptural open-back detail, tattered raw hems, and the word beast embroidered in all caps on the collar. Accessorized with a pair of strappy black heels and silver face jewels, the look was worthy of both the red carpet and dystopic sci-fi films (quick, someone get Denis Villeneuve on the phone).

At the awards ceremony, Twigs, who released her latest album, Caprisongs, this past January, was crowned the winner of the Godlike Genius award. She became the youngest-ever person and the first Black female artist to receive the accolade, which has been previously bestowed upon the likes of Courtney Love, Dave Grohl, and The Cure.
“I don’t know a godlike genius but it’s a godlike strength to carry on throughout difficult times, the personal experiences, through world experience, the hardest thing to do is to keep going,” she said during her acceptance speech, per NME. “I’m just so grateful that there’s a space for me here. Thank you for the support, be safe and let’s just be kind to each other.”
