La Roux Loses her Fashion Show Virginity at Viktor & Rolf in Paris

Elly Jackson of La Roux lost her fashion show virginity today at Viktor & Rolf's men's show in Paris—"Apart from [hairstylist] Charlie Le Mindu, I've never been to a fashion show before," she told WWD. "I love suits, I wouldn't feel comfortable in girls' clothes."

"We love her style," Viktor Horsting said. "We love her authenticity. We love the way she plays with gender. So it felt logical. She's right for our men's clothes."

Look for Viktor and Rolf to make a cameo in La Roux's upcoming "In for the Kill" video. "There's a part they'd be perfect for," Jackson said. "Hopefully they'll be into it. If not, we'll have to find look-alikes with glasses."
