Patti Smith (2006)

Patti Smith is a fashion icon to those who like their womenswear to veer towards the androgynous and cerebral. Countless designers have taken cues from the singer's "pagan poet" aura, especially Belgian maverick Ann Demeulemeester, who has composed several collections in tribute to the singer – they've even collaborated on multimedia projects together. In 2006, Smith played Lollapalooza in a signature genderless ensemble that incorporated a men's dinner jacket over a blouse – a hard/soft look beffitting the so-called godmother of punk, who can still blow the Docs off of anyone around her, regardless of gender or age.
