A poet and singer/songwriter, she’s known as the “Godmother of Punk” after making a major splash in the mid-seventies in the New York punk scene. Beyond her musical talents, she’s never fails to look badass. While it’s usually a bunch of black oversized dress shirts and blazers these days, she’s had a few looks that would make any street fashion photographer today squeal. Maybe great style really never ages? Here are a few celebs and fashion bloggers spotted in looks Patti rocked back in the day.
Alexa looks uncannily similar with an almost identical leather jacket and shaggy, shoulder length haircut.
Leopard print headband? Yes please! Patti looks amazing and Jessica does too.
The hat’s a pretty aggressive military accessory but sometimes camo just isn’t enough.
You probably though you’d be able to get through this post without seeing a flower crown. Nope! But Patti and Nikki look so pretty and whimsical.
K Stew’s been known to rock graphic tees and jeans on many an occasion, disheveled hair and all. Unfortunately, we haven’t caught her in front of a urinal yet.
Bebe Zeva/Fated to be Hated
Looking moody in a wide-brimmed black hat is way more versatile than you probably think.
And here’s Patti Smith doing what she does best! She actually co-wrote this song with Bruce Springsteen.
