On stage she wears the most amazing outfits in which a human being can possibly squeeze and she manages to perform her songs as required (sweet, sexy, aggressive...), even if she wears a cube shaped dress!
Like a real chameleon, Roisin Murphy can also wear more "normal" dresses, always very elegant or very extravagant.
In fashion there are limitation: if you have a certain body shape, you can wear successfully only certain kinds of clothes and the same applies to colors, depending on your complexion.
Roisin Murphy is in a league of her own: her self assurance gives her the right to wear any piece of clothing, any theatrical costume, any wearable object in fact.
This artist went there where Lady Gaga got only much later. Contrary to Lady Gaga, Roisin Murphy wears everything with a charm and a style that nobody can imitate. I like to wear crazy clothes but Murphy is really my hero, she goes where no human has gone before.
Just have a look at these pictures (the rights are of the photographers, I just found them on the web to illustrate my theory) and you will understand why she is a great inspiration for anybody that loves fashion, does fashion illustration or theater costume design.
