Considered as one of the best dressed and most fashionable
women in rock, Shirley Manson has been the subject of adoration for both male
and female fans. The fiery redhead shows an edgy, sexy style that is very easy
to emulate. Her fashion sense on and off the stage has landed her magazine
covers and high-profile makeup endorsements. She also landed a TV show gigs,
became a model for Calvin Klein and became immersed with lots of charity work.
Shirley rocks leather pants, boas, mini dresses and a lot
others, so you have lots of choices. Of course, her signature look is her short
dresses, which should work wonders for you if you have great legs.
Things you will need:
- A short dress or a top
paired with mini-skirt
- Wide, funky-looking belt
- Tall, high-heeled boots
- Black or grey eyeliner
- Pale foundation
Step 1: Shirley
Manson is known for rocking the mini skirt like no one else can. Her gorgeous
legs are always shown to full advantage in short dresses or mini skirts. Choose
dresses that are cut above the knee. Do not wear tights or stockings; Shirley
is famous for showing of f those incredible gams.
You should take note that Shirley rarely wears skimpy tops.
She balances the shortness of her skirts with fairly conservative tops, with
modest necklines. She prefers to leave the upper part of her body covered,
which only accentuated the bareness of her legs more.
Step 2: The diva
goes for minimal accessories to maintain her streamlined look. She usually
wears wide, funky-looking belts that accentuate her small waist. Choose among
chunky belts in any color to wear with the dress. The more attention-grabbing
the belt is, the better.
Step 3: Red hair
is a must! If you are not a natural redhead, you can get Shirley’s beautiful
red mane by having your hair dyed temporarily. If you don’t want to have your
hair colored, you can wear a wig instead. Make sure you get one with Shirley’s
exact hair style.
Step 4: Shirley
Manson has beautiful, pale skin, which provides a contrast to her fiery red
hair. This means that you should do away with the bronzers and blushes. Use
pale foundation if you must to achieve her white complexion.
Step 5: The
makeup is the most fun part of creating a Shirley Manson outfit. The rocker has
made the smudged, raccoon-eyed makeup as her signature look, which you can do
by loading up on gray eye makeup, mascara and eyeliner. There are lots of
tutorials in the internet for the smoky-eye look.
Match the dramatic eye makeup with super glossy lips. Put on
pink or red lipstick then go crazy with the lip gloss.
Step 6: Complete
the diva, rockstar look by stepping on a pair of tall, high-heeled boots.
Nothing less will do for the Shirley Manson outfit. She rarely wears flats, and
she looks very powerful onstage in her boots. Try wearing knee-high boots to go
with your short skirt.
