Spice Girls

The Spice Girls was the British answer to American boy bands like ‘N Sync and Backstreet Boys. Each girl adopted a persona and a nickname that played off the word spice. They became international stars known for endorsing girl power as well as hits like Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is a songwriter and rapper known as much for her bubblegum outfits and music videos as her chart-topping singles.

Ma-Ma

In Dredd, Madeline Madrigal (Lena Headey) works her way up the dystopian Peach Trees apartment complex, killing her pimp and becoming the resident kingpin Ma-Ma. Through her violent gang, she controls every inch of Peach Trees and uses it to manufacture drugs.

Hatsune Miku

Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid, a virtual persona created from a singing synthesizer. Being a simulation hasn’t stopped her from achieving real fame, topping the charts with many of her 100,000 songs and even opening for Lady Gaga.

Enema of the State Nurse

Blink-182’s 1999 release Enema of the State was a runaway success. The album cover features Janine Lindemulder in a scantily clad nurse’s uniform, which probably had something to do with that.

Gwen Stefani

Before there were Harajuku girls, Gwen Stefani was fronting No Doubt and setting trends for teenage girls everywhere. Pairing tomboy with girlie girl, ’90s Gwen is easy to pull off. All you need is a crop top and bright red lipstick. You can also pull out those bindis you’ve been hiding since 1995.

Andrew WK

Andrew WK is a rock singer and songwriter known for his hit single Party Hard, and for partying hard. This outfit just needs one more thing — for you to wear the jeans seven months straight to build up that grime.

Bloodhound Gang

The Bloodhound Gang is a Philly band known for their juvenile lyrics. In the music video for The Bad Touch, they’re fittingly wearing monkey suits as they sing about being nothing but mammals.

Dr. Frank-N-Furter

In Rocky Horror Picture Show, when Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) isn’t wearing hospital scrubs he’s strutting his stuff in fishnets and platform heels. While we can’t promise that imitating his look will transform you into a “Sweet Transvestite from Transexual Transylvanian” we can assure you that nearly everyone will know where you got your inspiration. Dr. Frank-N-Furter has a style that is unmistakable.

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams is best known for his involvement with The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. but is also well known for his collaboration with other musicians like Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, and Gwen Stefani. He’s also into fashion and made a statement during the 2014 Grammys with his homage to Canadian mounties.
