Beauty Icon...Debbie Harry

"Everybody knows that I've had plastic surgery. I did it for business reasons. You photograph better, and looks are a key part of being an entertainer, so I felt it was something I had to do. All sorts of horrific things happen in life. Why make it worse by worrying about getting older?"

I love how her eyemakeup is mimicking her hair, and hey - who wants to worry about getting old anyway.

Adore her, always have. She is IT, she blows Gwen Stefani, Gaga, etc., out of the water.

debbie harry is synonymous with 80s glam and certainly has a "coolness" about her. great beauty inspiration!
p.s. re: kings of leon...i've only heard a few sneak previews of the new album on youtube and so far it doesn't disappoint!

I don't usually agree with plastic surgery, except if a) it's necessary for medical reasons or b) people are completely open, honest and unashamed of it. In the second instance, I just think, fair dos, if you've got a proper justification, that's your choice and I respect that-if it's not just for vanity.

I admire her frankness. And she looks great now, as she did back then.
