Has there ever been anyone cooler than Debbie Harry? As the face of the band Blondie, she belted out some of the classic pop songs of the 1980s. She was also an icon of chic street style, with flawless cheekbones and a sexy smirk, shining against the gritty background of the New York punk scene. Debbie was so cool that she didn’t even seem to need our admiration. And please, let’s not forget that she was sporting her signature platinum hair, her sharp little outfits, and her bright red lipstick long before Gwen Stefani ever stepped up to a microphone!
