‘Idol’ Top 12 Finalist Hones Sassy Style

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having the right look can make or break a singer’s career in the music biz.

That’s the tune from pint-sized performer Alexis Grace, who was declared a Top 12 finalist on American Idol this past Wednesday (Feb. 18).

Grace wowed the judges with her voice and her style – which included a patch of pink hair and a cocktail dress – but she wasn’t always a budding fashionista.

The Idol judges told her to “dirty up” her look a couple weeks ago, and Grace has been hard at work finding the style that’ll make her a star.

She’s been shopping and having her girlfriends pull together a “bluesy” look to match her smokey, Aretha Franklin-inspired vocals.

Says Grace: “I like the whole ’60s soul/cocktail dress vibe.”

For now, she compares her sassy style to that of Joss Stone, Duffy, or Amy Winehouse – minus the beehive.
