One of our favorite things about pop star Charli XCX
is her unafraid confidence and brutal honesty. She makes straight up pop music, but something about the 24 year old singer-songwriter is a little more edgy, a little less plastic...
In The FADER's second cover of their Fall Fashion issue
, Charli XCX displays just that, her raw, unembellished self. Sporting natural curls, neutral makeup, and no sign of putting on a fake smile to please us, she's--for lack of better terms--the realest. The British singer continued her string of honesty and told The FADER, "I used to really care about my validity as a writer or as someone who's going to be received well. And now I don't. The more I've grown up and the more I've become secure with myself, I've become comfortable with being questioned. I don't mind if people think I'm a fake." She's here to have fun and make the best pop music ever, she's not here to please you.
