When you think Debbie Harry, you think style.


From wearing a pillowcase strapped with red tape, to a suit covered in wooden buttons, Harry is one of the best-dressed women of all time.

When she emerged within the New York scene in the band Blondie, her late '70s and '80s styles mixed early 1960s girl group and 'mod' vibes, with a brash punk twist.

Her rude girl attitude combined with unrelenting lyrics quickly elevated her above other rock and pop vocalists.

Inspiring generations of female and male vocalists after her, she is now viewed as one of the truest style icons, a perennial inspiration, influencing both the music and fashion industries.

Since Blondie's success Harry has released five solo albums and have been in over 60 film roles.

Tonight, Vivienne Westwood, an icon of the highest order in her own right, presented Debbie Harry with her 'Style Icon' ELLE Style Award, at the 2017 event, sponsored by H&M.

She wore Vivienne Westwood on the night.

May of this year will see Blondie's new album 'Pollinator' released.

She has also collaborated with the graffiti artist Shepard Fairey on a special-edition women's collection for Obey label and the collection will be in stores for Fall'17 season.

So here's to our Sunday Girl, giving us iconic style every day of the week.
