Style Icon: Grimes

Posted by Drake General Store, 2 years, 7 months ago

She's our cool Canadian sweetheart. Claire Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes, has not only rocketed to the mainstream radar with her music, but her personal style is stealing its own spotlight. Grimes is a chameleon, her look is always evolving and she makes a box of Crayolas look monochromatic.
