See Charlotte Lawrence’s “Talk You Down” Music Video Outfits

Charlotte Lawrence just released her music video for “Talk You Down” (her full album will be out in March!), and she’s wearing two polar-opposite outfits. First, we see Charlotte in a gemstone-embellished Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit — perhaps to convey her edgier side — and then she swaps it out for an angelic Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini dress. The number comes with a high ruffled neckline, pleats down the front, and sheer sleeves with intricate cuffs. This second look is rather whimsical in comparison to the first. Though her sweep of metallic eyeshadow stays put throughout the video, Charlotte wears

But for today, let’s focus in on a particular hairstyle she had going on back in 1995 at a charity picnic: wispy, overgrown bangs stretched slightly past the eyebrows, dropping down behind a pair of
