Need To Meet: Melanie Fiona Video
The singer not only shows us what’s in her bag, but also shares her celebrity crush, style icon and why understated confidence is the ultimate accessory.
Hey. What's up? I'm Melanie and you're watching Marieclaire.com. 'Cause I'm slowly dying 'cause I need you bad. But you're gone and never coming back. I'm an excellent jump roper. I can jump rope like nobody's [unknown], like a Double Dutch like champion. I'm pretty good. I always had a crush on Will Smith. It's because I look like actually a [unknown] 'cause I used to get a lot grownup too. He made me laugh as a kid and like I guess now just become as like beautiful [unknown]. I think Gwen Stefanie is a style icon. If I take it back, I love Diana Ross. I think Diana Ross is like one of the most amazing style icons. How versatile and how elegant and how stellar she just looks all the time in everything and how innovative. Bohemian couture maybe. I hope that exists. I hope that we said that before, so that's kind of how I feel, mixing a little bit of old and new. I want to be able to teleport. I live on the road all the time that I would love to just be able to just be like wake up. Hello. Wake up, Paris. Wake up at mom's kitchen. Midnight train to Georgia by Gladys Knight. He's leaving on that midnight train to Georgia, leaving on the midnight train. The bag I have today is a Louis Vuitton bag. Monogrammed is not in your face because I always feel that confidence is always better understated. I have a lot of brand new stuff in my bag. Nail polish, I can go get a manicure when I'm finished because of chipping today. Lots of good mascara, none of mine, all from other people. I always have a pair of sunglasses in my bag. These are actually my favorite sunglasses right now. They're Dior. And they're kinda like a purple burgundy, cute and I love them. Mascara, always. A nail file, this is keep. I'm always the girl that you can rely on when you're just like, man I need a safety pin. I need a nail polish. I need tweezers. I need a needle and thread. You can find it in this. I have band aids in here. I have miniature [unknown]. I've got glitters, individually sanitized wrapped Q-Tips, whatever you need. I got this iPod which is new and really cool and dirty. Last, but not least, one of my favorite things ever given to me by one of my biggest fans on the day of my album release was this Mark Jacobs heart compact mirror. I love hearts. I have a heart tattooed on my wrist. That's what's in my bag. And you can have any medical emergencies, you can call me. I can fix you up.
