Melanie Martinez Serves Twisted Toddler Chic: 10 Killer ‘Cry Baby’ Looks
From the adorable Cry Baby cover to the demented “Pity Party” video, Melanie Martinez’s unique style shines through every aspect of her work. It’s difficult to describe her signature look, but twisted toddler chic (or perhaps baby-doll-on-LSD) is my best guess. The 20-year-old embraces all things kitsch, vintage and cute — albeit with a dark, and often slightly disturbing, spin. Click through her best looks up top.
The singer/songwriter is having something of a banner year. After building huge buzz with her Dollhouse EP in 2014 (you might remember “Carousel” from those American Horror Story: Freak Show promos), Melanie dropped debut LP Cry Baby in August and debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. She’s currently on tour, selling out shows across the country. See the dates below.
