Tears on the Moonlit Streets of Paris

I have just discovered KYO - The French Rock / Pop band. Their name is allegedly inspired by their love of Japanese Anime. Aside from having a warm sound that evokes a glamorously grunge feeling in me, ( of perhaps that is just because I don't speak French and everything they say sounds lovely) they also have some wonderful fashion imagery in their videos.

This clip for their song 'Sarah', has the leading lady dressed in a combination that is both frothy and filthy; and it works a treat. ( I wish I could post some images here for you, but I don't know how to get still shots from YouTube and the embedding on this one is disabled. :( )
With an oversized grey anorak, white layered tulle skirt and combat boots; the look is fragile, tough and has something a bit Eliza Doolittle about it.

Here's my versions of the look. Can't you just feel yourself clomping around the rainy streets of Paris, crying for your lost love?
