Shinghai Shoniwa Covers ES Magazine

One of the most beautiful, talented and fashionable women in Britain has just set the cover of ES Magazine alight.

Noisettes lead singer Shinghai Shoniwa covers The Evening Standard in Queen of Noise with band mate Don Smith and looks radiant, thanks to photography by Ram Shergill.

This jewelled headpiece elevates Shinghai to a regal status, the bright gold colour contrasts with her dark skin and her crown of curly locks create a soft divide between the heavy crown and her delicate features. The pink lips stand out from her face and the heavy eyebrows work well with her soft appearance. The intricate corset-inspired top does well to show off her slim figure, without being too tight or revealing and those yellow nails are the perfect fashion edge to this antiquated look.
