before the punk explosion where the "rock chick" as we know it was born, there were the ronettes ~ the original bad girls of rock'n'roll.
paired with huge beehives, heavy batwing eyeliner and a whole lot of attitude, sixties girl group the ronettes made even pant-suits look impossibly cool.
dolling up in shift dresses and kitten heels or dressing down in pedal pushers and sneakers, these bubblegum pop stars left an indelible mark on fashion - and apparently provided amy winehouse with endless beauty inspiration, not to mention musical direction.
it's easy to copy the look ~ get a little adventurous and don a quintessential sixties piece like a full skirt or a frou-frou sequinned frock, or pair a v-neck cardigan with cropped jeans and flats and let your eye makeup do the talking.
