Icon: Alice Glass (from Crystal Castles)

Alice Glass looks like the outsider girl in every high school that the shy outcasts wanted to be. Her bleak pallor and cropped hair paired with her ability to wear thick, black eye make up without looking silly (something I never achieved) lends her an other species kind of appearance. These photo's look more like stills from a movie about a zombie punk band than images of just a girl with a microphone. I also think, and this may come as a shock, it's quite cool that Miss Glass almost never wears trousers. It's rare that you see a girl really rock a skirt. Her apparently great tight collection and filthy Chucks, along with her aforementioned traits, prevent her from looking like a girly girl. This look doesn't scare all the boys away. It draws the truly cool ones in. The interesting and talented Mehran over at Between the Static and Magic has declared her a "dreamboat". I think looking at Alice can inspire an invisible outcast to be noticed. Even if it's for looking strange. Anything but typical, please.

Now get dancing all you freaks and geeks!

I am definately going to imitate that skirt look, as she manages to make it look so amazing. Also, she bears a striking resemblance to Agyness Deyn, but it could only be me who thinks that.
