Musette's ROCKING Style File

Is the thought that you will never look as cool as your favourite rock star getting you down?
Well cheer up, because Musette demonstrates how easy it is to channel rock idols without looking like you are headed to a costume party.

Exhibit A
If you can't seem to duplicate her singing voice then borrow Patti's consistently androgynous look and make it your own.Team a pair of skinny trousers with ankle boots, a loose top, and a boxy blazer or waistcoat. Ditch the make-up for a day and walk with a swagger only Patti can top. Perfected above by Alexander Wang-Fall 2008 RTW

Exhibit B

Always wanted to get in touch with Bowie's wild alter ego? Following in his fashion footsteps does not have to be as wacky as you think. Now is the time to embrace 'skin tight,' whether it be in the form of a mini dress, (as seen in the Balmain Fall 2008 RTW collection) or a daring uni-tard. Go all out with bright make-up such as electric eyeshadow, bright blushes or matte, stained lips...Not all at once though, please.

Exhibit C
JANIS JOPLINIf you can't get enough of that husky voice and iconic style, be free to step up to the 60's fashion plate.Pair a tie-dyed top or pants with something more basic to balance it all out. While remembering to wear your hair wild, look out for a pair of round sunnies to complete this psychedelic look.
