I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that there was been a time in my life when I declared Britney Spears as my "something" icon. And for Charli XCX, '90s Britney is her beauty icon. You remember that Britney, right? The one from ...Baby One More Time, before the super sex appeal kicked in? Fresh off the Mickey Mouse Club and innocent as all get out. Well, Charli turns to her for beauty advice and we totally understand why.
Calling her, "so fresh-faced," Charli opened up about a few other of her beauty icons, Angelina Jolie being one of them. But they weren't all as soft-spoken as '90s Britney. "For stage looks I go to Siouxsie Sioux — her eye makeup is wild," Charli said.
And this contrast in beauty speaks a lot about her style, overall, which isn't something that came with her fame. "I was always more interested in the 'worst-dressed' pages and extreme rock'n'roll makeup rather than what was 'good'," Charli said of her childhood. All of which you can see in the moody pop that she makes today.
Now, I can't say that I'm a big fan, but her look is very striking. She keeps it simple, yet bold, which I love. And she definitely stays true to who she is, making her a self-love icon all her own.
