Model, author and dietician Maye Musk is very close to the 32-year-old singer - who recently welcomed son X Æ A-Xii with Elon, 48 - and she thinks the star is incredibly stylish and creative.

She told WWD: "She has incredible fashion and is creative. I admire people who are creative because I am a scientist. I work with so many creative people in the fashion industry."

Maye also believes that the fashion industry will be changed drastically by the Covid-19 pandemic and she thinks it will become much more sustainable.

She explained: "I think it's going to be more sustainable, less glamorous. It's going to take a while. I've modeled designer clothes where they have spent hours putting together a beautiful garment for me. I don't know if people are going to spend so much."

Meanwhile Grimes - whose real name is Claire Boucher - previously insisted that her private style is "more weird" than her public persona suggests.

She said: "In my life, I'm a lot more weird than this. Grimes is more palatable for humans. If it was up to me maybe I'd wear a moustache or something.

"I try to make it digestible to a degree. That's what I'm interested in seeing. I create a thing that I wish existed in the world, versus my own full unabashed creative expression."
