Janis Joplin: The hippie queen.

Janis Joplin's style caught my eye from the very beginning. I love how she was so free and used to wear what she wanted, she was not scared to look different and I guess that's the attitude that makes me think of her as a fashion icon. She was all about long beaded necklaces, crafty belts, lots of bangles and round sunglasses (bigger than the ones John Lennon popularized back in the 60s). I know it's kind of ironic I've made one of those "Get the look" posts, because most of the stuff she wore was homemade, but I couldn't help myself and did this collage (which, by the way, took me a couple of hours to be ready).

I agree that her not caring about what people think makes her an icon. Great inspiration.

Janis Joplin is awesome. I agree with you that she is an icon. Not only in fashion, but in music too. In my opinion you're an icon when you manage to influence more generations, and Janis Joplin managed that. Yeah, I guess the "Get The Look" collage is kind of ironic, but I love it anyway, because I love Janis's style and I'm not that good at making clothes... Haha... I love the Forever 21 shirts. And is that furry Topshop thing a jacket or a jumper?
