First Lady of Rock

One of my favorite fashion icons is First Lady of Rock, Anita Pallenberg.  She has mastered the style and attitude of your stereotypical bad ass rocker and brought a fresh take and edge to her look.  Pallenberg got her start in modeling and acting but is best known for romantic involvement with three members from The Rolling Stones.  

Her style draws influence and inspiration from various aspects of her life and experiences.  She was born to an Italian artist, German secretary, and worked in fashion as a model, film as an actress, and studied medicine, picture restoration, and graphic design.  She's traveled the world and taken up residence in London, Germany, Rome, and New York City.

Pallenberg's style hits all the right notes.  Her silhouettes are slim, hem lengths daring, and everything is finished off with the perfect accessories.  She had mastered over sized sunglasses long before an Olsen twin or Lindsay Lohan.  Her choice of leather is always unique whether it be a bold color, slim/cropped cut, or interesting detail.  She accessorizes with fur and feathers in a way that is never over the top.  Her style goes beyond her threads.  Anita's hair cut has remained a statement in her look, a shoulder length bob with blunt bangs.  Pallenberg's rocker chic look has influenced and inspired the likes of Kate Moss and Sienna Miller.

The kohl-eyed icon is foremost an actress by trade, credited in Barbarella, Performance, and Mister Lonely.  In the 90's she attended four years of fashion design school and soon after became a fashion designer.  Now at 64 you can find her splitting her time between New
 York and Europe, still running her fashion line and sporadically appears in public as a DJ.
