It-girl Brianna Lance, fashion muse, creative director, designer, and contributing magazine editor, recently set out on her own as a solo artist after the breakup of the New York based all-girl band she fronted, Bad Girlfriend. We caught up with the sexy songstress on her new projects. “I’m the happiest when I’m making music, drawing, dancing, or working in a creative capacity—keeping my eyes open for what is stimulating, and then making more of what I love for the world. I surround myself with interesting people and I draw inspiration from everything around me.” Lance grew up in Dallas and came to New York to study fashion design at Parsons. “When I moved to New York at 19, I was recruited—with no experience—to play tambourine in a psych band, and I’ve been making music ever since.” She draws most of her beauty ideas from film, “Brigitte Bardot and Francoise Hardy always had such great style, and gorgeous eyes. Women like Joan Didion and Nina Simone, all of those badasses that maintained their thing are the best.” On stage, Lance favors a doe-eyed mod ‘60s look—think Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton—that she creates with Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, so that people can better connect to what she’s trying to communicate. “I always think about how I can write or perform a song that makes everyone dance or cry. I once had a therapist tell me that I’m constantly motivated by sexuality.” She gets show ready by meditating, “I get so much adrenaline when I play, so to balance that pre-show, I like no noise, no distraction…once the show starts, dancing, shouting, weirdos, I love it all.”
