  Toyah and galactic fashionsFeb 26, 2011 6:11 AM PST | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:Well as you know *cough*, I'm constantly watching the latest happenings in the fashion world for ideas on Selenis' style and wardrobe. Um... Well anyway I came across a specimen I found relevant to that topic lately, namely the British punk/pop singer Toyah, who was apparently pretty big over...in the '80's. I'd never heard of her until two days ago, which may not mean much since for instance I hadn't even heard of Blondie until I was in college in Chicago in '95 or so. Anyway, the point is that Toyah had some pretty wild styles, like eh hm some sort of sci-fi-ish thing maybe

and even the nearly contemporary (she's still performing!)

which is actually a fairly Selenis-y outfit, aside maybe from the feathers and metal brassiere. Also possibly

although I'm not 100% sure that's her. Worth posting anyway, I think. :) (Much more '80's hair in this blog article I swiped that picture from.)
 
Toyah also sported pretty wild 'dos in her videos, for instance in the videos for Brave New World, Don't Fall In Love, Rebel Run, the recent Sensational, and maybe wildest of all in the sort of post-apocalyptic Thunder in the Mountains, which I'll embed for your convenience:

You'll also notice a marked sci-fi bent to a lot of them! Well! Toyah may have fooled most of the world, but we A*s know that she's very likely a galactic bounty hunter in disguise.
