How to Style: Glam Rock
Today we are going to talk about glam rock style, which is also known as glitter rock. It’s a style of rock music which takes its beginning in the United Kingdom in the early 1970’s. Artists like David Bowie, Sweet, Lady Gaga, Roxy Music and Gary Glitter developed this style and it was influenced by music genres like glam metal, punk, Gothic rock and grunge style of the 90’s. Studs and crystals accessorize edgy designs of leather jackets.
For some of you glam rock means something which is connected to rock, yet I’d say it’s a kind of style which underlines your elegance and strength. Even brutal punk ladies want to be spotted by men. Remember Alice Cooper who appeared in leather skinnies, collar with studs, black leather jacket with Swarovski crystals and extravagant hat cylinder on the stage. Indeed, glam rock is something eye-catching and bold, that’s why many designers and labels started to include this edgy style in their collections, like Vivienne Westwood, Givenchy, Christian Lacroix, Alexander McQueen etc. I simply felt in love with Just Cavalli autumn-winter collection’s runway show, when models appeared on the catwalk wearing dark outfits. That was the day when glam rock appeared as sterling style.
