Debbie Harry

Alexander Wang wool coat, mesh top, nylon gloves and cotton bandana,

With choppy bleached blonde locks and a penchant for vivid eyeshadow and draping, new wave punk goddess Debbie Harry pulled off three of this season’s hottest beauty trends all at once.


Grace Jones

Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello wool bodysuit, Saint Laurent. Vintage necklace, model’s own

Black eyeshadow smeared across the lids to exaggerate heavy, line-rimmed peepers — Grace Jones would approve.


Diana Ross

Embellished silk gown, Gucci

Diana Ross’ fabulous ’fro might not be for everyone, but her idea of night-time makeup is: defined lashes and eyeliner, and a bold rose-red pout. 


Jane Forth

Satin blouse, metal and enamel earrings, and matching necklace, Versace

Barely there brows (she plucked the ends off), unexpected eyeshadow shades, and blusher worn marionette-style (read: focused on the apples of the cheeks) made Warhol muse Jane Forth one of the most imaginative beauty originators of all time. 


Candy Darling

Calvin Klein 205W39NYC silk dress, Dover Street Market Singapore

A smoky cut crease + pretty pink lips = a softer, more wearable spin on Candy Darling’s hard-edged glamour.


Isabelle Collin Dufresne

Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello silk shirt, embroidered pants, leather headband and metal choker, Saint Laurent

Make like haute hippie Isabelle Collin Dufresne, aka the artist Ultra Violet, by topping off a cascade of dark curls with a fun hair accessory.
