Pre-Raphaelite and a coat.

(excuse the overload of images) There appears to be a distinct link between the new cover of the Florence + the Machine album 'Ceremonials' and the paintings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti of the Pre-Raphealite Brotherhood.

The obvious comparisions include the use of a red headed woman, the use of symmetry/the repetition of the same woman and even similar hairstyles. I think this modern take works well though.

Florence + the Machine.

and the coat...?

WELL I bought this a couple of days ago for a tenner! I'm still not 100% on it because it fits weird. I reckon that's down to it being a man's coat though. Also, not really sure what I'm doing with my face.
