No music video—even one with a heartwarming message—can be full with out some appears to be like. An eccentric model icon in her personal ceremony, Keaton introduced her personal outfits (and hats!) to set. “The outfits had been indicative of my model as a result of they’re mine,” says Keaton with amusing. “Among the outfits are from my closet.
