Continuing our February theme we give you Cosme-Haul Style Icon Deborah Harry--the Punk and New Wave pioneer with the perfect heart-shaped mouth, who really knew how to rock red lip gloss (and made bedhead and roots a cool thing).

Deborah was platinum blonde, but she let her roots show, without making it look the least bit trampy. She wore her hair bedhead-style, in a casual, who-gives-a-f**k kind of way. She wore black motorcycle jackets with striped French sailor shirts. And no one did red lip gloss better than the way Deborah Harry wore it in the video for “Heart of Glass”, which was shown regularly on TV despite the debut of MTV being more than two years away.
Lest we forget, Deborah Harry could sing and write lyrics, too, and she was a hell of a performer onstage. In the music world, as well as the fashion world, Deborah Harry was a pioneer: Blondie’s blend of punk, pop, and disco ushered in the sound known as “New Wave.”
