Style Icons: Female »Chrissie Hynde

Rocking Lady of Rock

Chrissie Hynde is a women of rock who actually rocks. Leather pants, ripped tees, a mouth made for swearing, a mullet, and a career as a band front-man that was usually reserved for men, Hynde defined an iconic, cool and tough style for women in music.

An Ohio transplant in London, Hynde began with ties to Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood in their store Sex before playing in several bands that didn’t work out. Eventually, her own creation, The Pretenders took off, giving us some of the best new wave hits of the era and a one memorable hot waitress video.
