I'm really liking New Zealand singer-songwriter Kimbra's music and look. You probably know her most recently from her collaboration with Australian singer Gotye on his track "Somebody That I Used to Know" (check out this awesome performance from KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, as well as her excellent mashup of Grizzly Bear and Tears for Fears).
The 22 year-old sites Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra as musical inspirations, but on the other end of the spectrum, is also very much into Nine Inch Nails and the Mars Volta. Her music reflects a fusion a genres, as does her style, which can border on eclectic and is a bit of a mishmash between retro and modern.
