Sky Ferreira is music and fashions latest It-Girl. Known for her long blonde mane, the Los Angeles native got her start on MySpace. The pop sensation was always scribbling down lyrics growing up and has written around 300 songs to date. Sky’s upcoming Capitol Records debut is shaping up to be a collection of electronic pop mixed with Blondie-esque tunes. Combining lustrous melodies with spare digitized production by hitmakers Jon Brion and Ariel Rechtshaid. Her current EP Ghost was released in fall 2012. Sky’s single, “Red Lips”, which she co-wrote with Shirley Manson was accompanied by a visceral music video shot by Terry Richardson.
Sky recently made her television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon performing her current single “Everything is Embarassing”. “Everything is Embarassing” was named the song of 2012 by New York Magazine. Sky is about to set out on a 19 city tour in the spring of 2013. Lyrically, Ferreira follows the age-old storytellers’ adage: Write what you know. “I’m interested in telling stories about youth and desire,” she says. “Not love though, because I haven’t experienced that yet.” Songs like “17” (about sneaking out and hanging out) and “Shiny Toy” (about obsession) are ripe, cleverly crafted coming-of-age tales about growing up fast in the City of Angels. Ferreira is hoping that her music will cheer up anyone who is going through a rough time. “For all the weirdoes like me who didn’t have friends? I want the songs to be their friends like other people’s songs were my friends,” she says. Her song “Sex Rules” was featured in the CK 1 campaign.
Sky made prominent appearances during New York and Paris Fashion Weeks sitting in the front row and DJ-ing after parties. She has performed at events for Givenchy, V Magazine, Teen Vogue, Calvin Klein, Mario Testino and AMFAR. Most recently, Sky appeared on the cover of V Magazine shot by Sebastian Faena. She has also been lensed for the covers and inside pages of notable fashion publications such as French Vogue, American Vogue, British Vogue, W, Interview, VS, Wonderland, Russh, Dazed and Confused and Purple.
She has been the face of Tommy Hilfiger Denim, H&M Fashion Against AIDS by Sebastian Kim, Vigoss Jeans, cK1 and cK1 Fragrance by Steven Meisel, and Adidas ‘All Originals’. Sky has worked with such photographers as Mario Testino, Inez and Vinoodh, Terry Richardson, Hedi Slimane, Mario Sorrenti, Ellen von Unwerth and Matt Irwin. Sky was recently the face of Saint Laurent pre-fall shot by Hedi Slimane. Sky’s favorite fashion era was the 90’s and attributes some of her style icons as Alicia Silverstein in “Clueless” and Drew Barrymore in “Poison Ivy”. Full of confidence, charisma and talent, Sky has a bright future ahead of her in the music and fashion worlds.
