Before Deborah Ann “Debbie” Harry became the iconic bleach-blonde front woman of the new wave punk band Blondie, she was the adopted daughter of two gift shop owners in New Jersey, a go-go dancer, and Playboy Bunny. It wasn’t until the mid-70s that she took to the stage as a singer, but all along she had more style and attitude that she knew what to do with, a coquetish badassness that made her a star. Beyond her hair and eye makeup, she was a pioneer of the mid-70s / late-80s style we see everywhere on the runways today, from one-shoulder tops to berets to colored tights. And at the age of 71, she hasn’t lost her touch. These days, she can be spotted at fashion week parties in Paris, New York, and everywhere in between, and most recently she performed in a dress that said, “Stop f—ing up the planet.” And as for her musical career, today Blondie released its 11th studio album, Pollinator, which features collaborations with young artists like Charli XCX and Dev Hynes. Over 40 years after the band first got together, their influence looms large.
