Style Icons: Female »Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi LauperI doubt I'm the only one who knows they wouldn't have ended up half as cool if it weren't for Cyndi Lauper. Not only did she have a fun fashion sense that was unlike anyone else's, she had a witty and spirited personality, not to mention great interests like wrestling, vintage clothes and masturbation.

I dressed as a punk rocker from kindergarten to fifth grade and owned florescent lace fingerless gloves and only dreamed of the day I could dye my hair crazy colors – all because of her. Maybe I'm just an old lady but it seems like there are fewer and fewer cool women to look up to in popular culture these days. I just don't think Pink is comparable to the pop goddess who told us that the Goonies were good enough.
