THE LADIES OF GRUNGE

 

We present to you the leading ladies of grunge. These bad ass babes pretty much ruled the nineties. From Kim Gordon who has been called the "'godmother of nineties cool" to '90s sweetheart with a cult like following Winona Ryder. We can't forget the all gal bands like Babes in Toyland that spawned grunge queens Courtney Love and Kat Bjelland or feminist favorite, Le Tigre which gave us Kathleen Hanna. The UK's version of Courtney Love was Britpop rocker babe Justine Frischmann- deemed the androgynous, grunge goddess. England also produced grunge rockstress PJ Harvey. Super grunge babe, Emma Balfour was the perfect representation of the nineties desire for natural, bared-faced beauty. She continues to be high in demand today, walking for Alexander Wang in '09 and having been the face of a 2010 Celine campaign. These women carved the way for young dames to nonchalantly rep a bold red lip and sneer simultaneously encompassing their bird-is-the-word attitude. Nowadays everybody seems to be a bit grunge thanks to them.
