Personally, I love Dita's look, but realise that its not exactly practical for everyday wear, so content myself with taking elements here and there to mix and match with the rest of my outfit.
I suppose I have 3 or 4 style icons, all musicians incidentally.First up: Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy. She is gorgeous and has a great voice to boot! I love her simple jeans and t shirt style, sometimes veering into a bit wacky and wonderful. I also love how she manages to remain feminine and sexy, highly important when your voice sounds like that!
Thirdly, Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation. I'm a sucker for a good corset and the more classic gothic attire of flouncy skirts and big dresses, and she does it beautifully. Always coupled with a pair of comfy boots, Ms den Adel eptiomises my ideal dress - if I had the time, money and reason to wear such garments!
Finally, Annie Lennox. I love her androgyny, and the fact she is quite simply beautiful. And very real.
That gives you a little insight into my style icons. At the weekend I'll start a tour round my wardrobe (which physically is about as far from gothic or alternative as you can get, but I likes it!), outfit by outfit. I'll also hopefully be able to show you the progress from my sewing endeavours.
