Hello again Pouters and happy Friday!
If you, like me, love the strange and eerie and aren’t stereotyped as typically “normal” because you listen to rock music, dye your hair funny colours and like obscene makeup, then this is the post for you.
For years girls of rock have been judged by their sense of style, mainly because it wasn’t society’s take on what is “gorgeous” or “wow”.
Well, I’m here to introduce you to the
Like what you see?
Alternative Models according to Wikipedia:
“Alternative modelling is a branch of the modelling industry that features models who do not conform to mainstream ideals of beauty. Alternative models are often niche-specific, with a personal style that represents subcultures like goth, burlesque, latex and fetishism. An alternative model may for example be tattooed, pierced, or have distinctively subcultural hair (shaved, dyed a distinctively unnatural colour, or in dreadlocks). Alternative modelling can be clothed or unclothed. Alternative modelling was given substantial mainstream media coverage in the last decade, partly through the creation and popularisation of community-based alternative modelling sites, like “GodsGirls” and “SuicideGirls”. Alternative modelling community sites promoted their models for their personality as well as for their looks and portfolio.”
Some of my favourite girls of the Alternative genre are:
She is an American blogger, model and fashion designer and you can find her on Buzznet where she blogs regularly. Known for her awesome pink hair, Audrey is a pop culture princess and sets trends wherever she goes..
She was a Suicide Girl who made it big and was on TrashyLife with Audrey Kitching
Known best for her role on Gossip Girl as sweet little Jenny, Taylor really showed her true colours when she started the band The Pretty Reckless and become the rock princess we love her for today. With lyrics that imply that she is a very angry teen and clothes that leave little to the imagination, she’s a bonafide rock rebel
Michelle “Bombshell” McGee:
Known best for her role in destroying Sandra Bullock’s marriage to Jesse James, she’s not just a homewrecker, but she actually does do some work haha. She’s a fetishist, does pole dancing really well and is a regular at Sexpo all over the world. She’s also really nice as I realised when I met her when Sexpo was in South Africa.
One of the adult industry’s gems, Liz Vicious is actually one of the sweetest people in the world, an adult film darling and a superhero of note (She has a love of comic strips about superhero’s too!). She’s one of my twitter friends and an absolute doll!
Kat Von D:
What I also love about the girls of the Alternative genre is that they’re not afraid to experiment in the makeup department and go crazy with the eyeliner, eyeshadow and lipstick!
Long Live the Girls of Rock!
Peace and Love xoxox
