One of our favorite NYC rappers, Leaf, recently spoke to Vogue about her awesome and untouchable style.

In a trend report article for the fashion giant, Leaf credits “mermaid”-esque style to ethereal music personalities like David Bowie and Sade. For Leaf, the iridescent and pearlescent glow that’s taken over Tumblr looks and YouTube makeup tutorials is “all about an inner glow that is both mesmerizing and femininely divine,” she says. “Whatever your attitude is that day, reflect it in your nails and hair, and the rest will follow.”

Check out Leaf‘s “Lie to Me” below, and take a few notes on making your own style a splash while you’re at it.
