PAPER Magazine's recent article the 25 Most Stylish Song Birds, celebrates today's most talented and fashionable women in the music industry. As the blurb below indicates, the article features a special fashion analysis of these young, up-coming and/or established ladies and also comes along with a delicious playlist, crock-full of tasty songs. You can listen to the mix for F!R!E!E! right here on Sophista-Funk!

"From Stevie Nicks' billowy dresses, to Grace Jones's power-suits, to Madonna's Gaultier bra, to Björk's swan get-up, female musicians have a long history of making fashion statements. These days, the current crop of songstresses, both up-and-coming and fairly established, are carrying on the tradition. To honor these women and their impeccable senses of style, we decided to compile a list who we think are the 25 most fiercely fashionable femmes doing their thing in the music biz today. As a way to keep things organized, we divided up the gals into those that rock an ethereal, very L.A. flower child look, those who go for the chic high-fashion thing, those who dress like an early-'90s club kid, those who think outside of the fashion box and those who we lovingly like to refer to as hot messes"

Some of my personal faves: Lykke Li, Janelle Monae, M.I.A., Kid Sister, Santogold, YELLE, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and CocoRosie... just to name a few!
