At first sight I understand why she isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re into teetering platforms and spangly mini-dress she definitely isn’t for you, but I love the way she manages to make a tatty mens shirt and lived in jeans look amazing. You’ve got to hand it to her, that is a skill.
I’ve basically spent a large chunk of the past few years wanting to be her. In fact there was an 18 month spell not so long ago where I made a conscious decision to ignore the fact that I am all tits and hips by opting to imitate Alison’s trademark look of skinny jeans, tatty tee, shirt and boots.
But what I love the most about Alison Mosshart is how comfortable she always looks wherever she might be. She wears what she wants, not what she’s supposed to and she’s ballsy about it. She wore a tux to Kate Moss’ wedding for christssakes!
- Also, did I mention her hair is amazing?!
