The women influencing the rock and roll fashion scene…..
The supremely talented Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes is known both for her songwriting skills and fantasy folk style. Her love of headbands and feather-adorned dresses make her uniquely ethereal and visually beautiful. She often cooks up quirky, Pocahontas style outfits that seem made for a different era and her perfect use of accessorizing brings a whole new twist to her dramatic look. The soulful singer makes a statement in dramatic glitter and colourful makeup, making her an eccentric style icon in her own rights.
Debbie Harry, best known as the lead singer of Blondie has always been one of the coolest women in rock. Her understated grunge / punk style became the centre of attention in the 80s, when punk fashion was it its peak. Today her legacy continues and a legion of fans still follow and remain inspired by her bad girl sense of style. Blondie’s favourite choice of daywear was often thigh-high leather boots teamed with a baggy rock-tee and denim hotpants.
Frontwoman Karen O of New York city Indie Rock band Yeah Yeah Yeah’s has become renown for her adventurous sense of punk rock style. The singer often makes a statement in unique, eclectic pieces that showcase her bold personality. Karen O’s distinctive style has made her head of the punk fashion packs. She always manages to look insanely cool, with her mix of clashing fabrics and colours, seemingly thrown together and topped with leather for that extra rock ‘n’ roll edge.
The Florence and the Machine front – woman has recently become a style icon in the making. With her kooky, avant-garde fashion statements setting the scene for rock fashionista’s all over the world. This lady is forever changing her style, whether it’s sporting floral and lace frocks inspired by costumes, or a rock tee and leather, she always looks super-stylish and cool. Her signature flaming red hair and scarlet lipstick keep her looking glamourous at all times. We love her quirky looks.
This award winning singer, songwriter and actress has expanded her career over four decades and is known as one of the most stylish females of the Sixties. The ultimate rock chic, Marianne wore feather boas teamed with leather jackets and heart-shaped sunglasses, rebelling against the conservatory suits that many women wore in this era. Her sexy sense of style and big doe – eyes attracted many eligible bachelors in the Sixties, such as Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and The Doors singer Jim Morrison.
The queen of grunge, Courtney Love is well known for her sense of laid-back style. The lead singer of band Hole and ex-girlfriend of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain knows her fashion, opting for lace, knitwear and gothic glamour when it comes to rock chic cool.
