Roisin Murphy For Crash Magazine Fall Winter 2009

  • Pin it

I loved Moloko. I did! It was a musical ray of light, only in high-tech, light and happy. And I was somewhat saddened to find out they were calling it quits few years ago. Then again it was a happy moment because Roisin Murphy went on her solo path.

There’s something about the Irish. Something turning their blood into something highly artistic. Just look at Roisin (click through to see the gallery) – she as natural as a model as she is a singer/performer. (the story continues right after the jump!)

The last time we talked Crash, it was about and around Karl Lagerfeld and Emma Watson. Now it’s Roisin as photographed by Mark Squires and styled by Avena Gallegher. There’s something so decadently beautiful and distant in these pictures.

I look at the images and think this is what I should feel every time I lay my eyes on pretended art. This is the artsy feeling, not some black marker signs on someone skin and then some violently tagged clothes to wear. Roisin’s music has a high power on me: every time I hear one of her songs, I can barely keep still. These Crash pictures, however, froze me. The magic is in her voice. How do you like Roisin? (also right after the images you can see the Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme ad campaign with James Franco. Why? Because there’s Roisin Murphy’s cover of Slave for Love in the background!) (photos via)

I am so in love with her! She’s talented, has a great voice and an incredible sense of style. Loved her performance at the last V&R show in Paris.. she was so beautiful with that tulle dress, even though we know she was 7 months pregnant.. and maybe it can’t be the greatest moment in a woman’s life to feel glamourous on stage! :)

I really like Rosin Murphy and Moloko was great! She looks fabu in these photos.
I like James Franco too, he seems like a smart, and funny person.
Apparently he has gone to Columbia University in New York to do a degree, and has stopped acting for a bit. Now that I find nifty! :)

Does anyone know who makes the dress with the bold black stripes?

Ha, I have not forgot this one! I also was a huge Moloko fan and a fan of Roisin also. Yes, it was sad that band split it. I’ve seen them once perform and it was great. All the crazy things she does on stage, her look, that voice….she’s marvelous.
Agree with Bibi, she was great at the V&R show.
A very interesting stylish woman. I love the photos, although the “standard couch photo” these days…ala…

That Gucci commercial does not interest me. I’ve new “hobby” I watch this kind of commercials on tv of late on my huge screen a lot. Just to see what it do to me……well, nothing really. And OMG, what a lot of eehhh…….well, nonsense one sees… won’t be long and I stop with this “hobby”.
