Avril Lavigne Talks Style Evolution in Allure January 2014
The "Happy Ending" songstress adorned herself in designer garb from Jean Paul Gaultier for the fashionable Sebastian Kim-shot spread while dishing about topics from her style evolution to her bad beauty decisions.
A few highlights from Miss Lavigne's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Allure!
On her style over the years:
"When I was a teenager, I had stick-straight hair, black eyes, Dickies, vintage T-shirts. For my second album, I started wearing bondage pants, shopping at Gothic stores, black streak in my hair. For me, that was growth. For my record The Best Damn Thing, I put pink in my hair and wore heels and dresses."
On her fans copying her signature looks:
"It's flattering! It's always cool when I start a new look for an album and it catches on with the fans, and they start showing up to the concert dressed how I am."
On her biggest beauty risk:
"I've always wanted to shave one side of my head, but it took me about four years to get the nerve. I was in Paris one night, andI was hanging out with [Marilyn] Manson, and I was like, 'Let's shave my head!' He shaved my head, and I finally did it. It was so easy. I thought growing it out would be a way bigger pain in the a** than it actually was. I grew it out because I was married."
On what makes her beautiful:
"I like to have long hair. I wear it down a lot, especially because I have more of a tomboyish style. I'm a shy person, so my hair is maybe a safety net. I'm not sure, but I've always loved long hair."
