Florence Welch Strips Down to Lingerie

Florence Welch goes from looking like Robert Pattinson to a Victoria's Secret model in under two minutes.
In her new video for her and Calvin Harris' song Sweet Nothing, the Florence + the Machine front woman, 26, begins performing in a burgundy suit and slicked back hair, thus looking as androgynous as possible. Meanwhile, Harris just can't stop fighting.
Amid bouts of violence, Welch manages to strip her suit and writhe on the floor in nothing but black lingerie.
The lyrics to the song are as emotionally-charged as the peculiar video. The chorus reads: "So I put my faith in something unknown/ I'm living on such sweet nothing/ But I'm trying to hope with nothing to hold/I'm living on such sweet nothing/ And it's hard to learn/ And it's hard to love/ When you're giving me such sweet nothing/ Sweet nothing, sweet nothing/ You're giving me such sweet nothing."
What do you think of this video? Is it Welch's best one yet?
