Beauty Icon: Grunge Girls

Kim Gordon
Kim Gordon is unquestionably the godmother of nineties cool. Along with founding Sonic Youth—the band that set the stage for grunge—Gordon established a template for women to do "girly" things without losing their badass cred. To wit, she married Thurston Moore, had a baby, helped launch Sofia Coppola's clothing label MILKfed, made a habit of appearing on stage in sparkles and minis, and her trademark eyeliner inspired a decade-long beauty trend.
