Lady Miss Kier Kirby splashed onto the scene in 1990 fronting the group Deee-lite who were known as much for their outrageous personae and costumes as for their music. With a background in fashion and design Kier was an influence not only on the group's image but in early 90's fashion too. Her initial look was a combo of dance wear and revamped and exaggerated retro '60s fashions, which was revolutionary at the time. Her signature look was a zip-up catsuit, wild prints, platform shoes and flipped hair-do. She moved into a more 40's/50's Hollywood starlet look around the time of the second album release. Following that era she did a complete 180 and created a new look that was heavily influenced by and influential on the rave scene. Today she continues to perform and DJ around the world. What I love most is her ability to alway bring an element of glamour, fun, and femininity to not only her look but her work as well.
