Haley Reinhart was a stunner from the moment she graced the "American Idol" stage in Season 10. (Remember how she werked that "Rhiannon" wind machine? And how she managed to look graceful even when she totally tripped in Zeppelin-inspired platform heels?) And since leaving the show and recording her debut, Listen Up!, she has adopted a pinup-perfect signature style that completely complements her album's retro soul sound.

So when Yahoo! Shine's The Thread visited with Haley recently in Chicago--where she made history as the first Idol to ever perform at Lollapalooza--she was of course grilled about all her time-traveling style inspirations. How does Haley make fashion flashbacks from the '40s through even the '80s look new again? Find out in the stylish video below.
