Mental Hopscotch

Browsing through Blogue, a Fashion Flashback post on 80's band Missing Persons' lead sing Dale Bozzio caught my eye. I was put on to Missing Persons not too long ago by a special someone, and I have to say they really are an awesomely rad band. Dale Bozzio was the equivalent of the modern-day Karen O, a fashion risktaker and musical daredevil. With ensembles consisting of bowl bras, foil and plastic vests, and glitter and fishnets leggings, she personified the space-futurista-glam-goddess look. Her hair was wild, colored, and crazy, and her makeup was fierce. Long before Madonna was the innovator on the music scene, Dale Bozzio brought a sick sense of innovation to the fashion landscape of New Wave. You go girl!

Check out some more of her awesome ensembles below and one of the band's videos as well!
