Florence Welch, hair crush and presumed part-time fairy, covers the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK in a dreamy Valentino couture gown.
The shoot was lensed by Camilla Akrans and styled by Sissy Vian, who doesn’t stray far from the look Welch has made her signature as of late – think frilly, feminine dresses in creams, peaches, and whites.
We weren’t expecting anything groundbreaking from the interview after reading editor Vassi Chamberlain‘s blog post, which we will save you the trouble of reading by summing up in three short sentences: “I met Florence Welch. She was nice. I liked her.” Yawn.
The actual piece promises slightly more blog-worthy fare, however. In the spirit of the Jubilee, Florence reveals:
“I am definitely growing into my Britishness. The more I grow up, the more British I become. I had the best day ever [during last year’s Royal Wedding] – I dressed up and put on a crown and watched it with my mother and sister. We were shouting at the television, ‘Kiss her, kiss her again!’”
And of the Queen:
‘I feel she’d know the answer to all sorts of questions.’ For example? ‘Oh, you know, the best words to use at Scrabble.’
Scrabble with Queen Liz? A dream we never knew we had!

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
