Sonic Youth (1995)

Though she never demands the spotlight, Kim Gordon's intuitive, artfully louche look  has become as crucial a motif to the fabric of alternative culture as Sonic Youth's music. It transcended grunge and became a founding cornerstone for future interpretations of "downtown cool" meant to a new generation of budding designers and stylists. The, same year her band auspiciously headlined 1995's Lollapalooza, she even helmed her own anti-fashion label, X-Girl. By the time the Youth played Lolla again in 2006, Gordon had become a front row fixture at New York designers like Marc Jacobs and Rodarte.
