Androgyny 80’s Style: Annie Lennox

By Glinda

Of course the androgynous look had been around long before this Eurythmics video came out, but seeing this video in 1983 was the first time I had ever really noticed it.

Annie Lennox is, of course, a stunning woman.

So when I saw the combination of uber-short hair, heavy makeup, and the business suit, I was in awe.

I managed to copy the short hair (although not quite as short as hers) and the heavy makeup, but never really got around to the business suit part.

Watching this video today for the first time in years, I am still struck by the uniqueness of her look.

And let’s not discuss the cows.  I have absolutely no idea about the cows.

    Annie Lennox is amazing: the voice! The eyes! All of her videos were great- go on youtube and watch ‘Why’ or ‘walking on broken glass’. Love love love her.

    Did the short hair and make-up (still have the hair, just a tad longer). But never could pull off the suit —bit too heavy in the chest for that to work. Would have loved to though.
