Rock and roll is FASHION.
Think of Creem Magazine's "Eleganza" column if you will. My first oasis of hipness was found in those pages, that column. When I think of style and rock and roll, of course it's players and their brilliant style come to mind, but so do many of the beautiful women/muses that surrounded the bands. Narrowed down to two, Anita Pallenberg and Loulou de la Falaise are my inspirations. Beauty queens, rebels, fashionistas (before the word was invented), these women to me, as archetypes are pirates. No surprise that they are both designers for the hip and chic today.
