Need to Meet: The Duke Spirit Video
Get to know Leila Moss, the lead singer of the emerging British rock band, who also happened to be Alexander McQueen's muse.
Hello. My name is Leila. I'm from the Deep Spirit and you're watching marieclaire.com. We are by piece, rock and roll band like in the true sense of the word, like heavy, [unknown] roll, absolutely roll in the hips. I guess for many people, they associate us with being like pretty ferocious, also kind of guitar band. But then there's quite-- shifts in dynamics and there's moments where we're quite tender.

In my own separate tour bus with a touring masseur and yoga instructor with whom, that's what I've been doing in between shows, keeping it suave. Radiant will be messy which is one word if I wrote it down. It might be hyphened. Nicki Minaj, and when she does something, you know, we should bring out the-- bring out the worst in each other. I feel for you by Chaka Khan. I feel for you. No I'd like to see the beginning that Chaka Khan, I wanna [unknown].
