Beauty Icon: Grunge Girls

Kim and Kelley Deal
Along with Sonic Youth, the band that probably did more to pave the way for grunge than any other was the Pixies. After its demise, its bassist, Kim Deal, along with her twin sister Kelley, went on to start another influential group, the Breeders. The Deals made for a double-dose of bedroom eyes, jutting cheekbones, and dark, signature nineties bed head, but what made the sisters ultracool—so cool, in fact, that the Dandy Warhols wrote a song called "Cool as Kim Deal"—was the fact that they never played to their beauty. They dressed just the way their dude friends did, kitting themselves out in rock-basic tees, jeans, and sneakers.
