'Vogue' List Cher, Dolly Parton, Tina Turner & Debbie Harry Amongst 22 Beauty Icons From the Music World

Beauty Icon Cher
Beauty magazine 'Vogue' have compiled a list of '22 Beauty Icons From the Music World' - and understandably, it includes ageless sex symbol and style icon Cher:

This week, the trailer for Nina—the Nina Simone biopic starring Zoe Saldana, which will come out next month—was released. While the controversy surrounding Saldana’s casting for the role as the iconic singer and pianist remains, there is no question the real Simone’s legendary look was as memorable as her music. After all, it’s hard not to associate the woman with those penciled-in eyebrows, or those expert layers of black eyeliner and blue eyeshadow, occasionally emphasized by the deft placement of rhinestones along the lash line. Then there were the braids, the abbreviated Afro, the hair jewelry, the head scarves, all of which add up to an inimitable approach to beauty that joins a legacy of musicians whose appearances were as signature as their sound.

After all, would you mistake a shock of bright orange hair and dramatically carved cheekbones for anyone other than David Bowie? Curtains of hip-grazing, jet-black lengths are practically synonymous with Cher. But, when paired with an exaggerated beehive and a thick flick of black eyeliner, you’re looking at an unmistakable likeness of Amy Winehouse.

A skill for contouring, golden blonde waves, and a love of dance have even made Channing Tatum into an ersatz Beyoncé. If Nicki Minaj lays claim to curves, then Grace Jones takes the cake when it comes to angles, making a habit of a flattop and dramatic diagonal slashes of blush, eyeshadow, and eyebrow pencil. And twin braids, when topped with a cowboy hat and anchored by a beard, belong to the one and only Willie Nelson.
