Lenny Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz, in his "Are You Gonna Go My Way?"-era glory, looked like a Jimi Hendrix figure for Generation X – replete with piercings, dreadlocks, bell bottoms and lot of libido-optimizing apparel of fur and leather. He perfectly mirrored the Nineties obsession with the Seventies that, conversely, means that his 1993 look should be coming into vogue any day now. Though he would go on to mellow his tunes, shave off his hair and streamline his overall look into something less likely to bewilder the adult contemporary crowd, it's hard to deny that at his best, Kraviz once resembled a rock star from another decade.
