Not many of you will equate Wendy O. Williams, the Queen of Shock Rock and front woman of legendary punk band, the Plasmatics, as a fashion influence on selections at Decades. However, when this early 1990s Paco Rabanne came our way with dramatic plastic straps and side panels, I was reminded of the Mohawk-wearing and often nearly nude performer who liked to blow up equipment and simulate sex on stage! Somewhere in my storage is their 1981 album Beyond the Valley of 1984. With the upcoming MET exhibition theme of Punk, here is a dress that is totally punk and requiring a very wicked-wearer with an equally wicked-bod.
Paco Rabanne black cut-out plastic strap dress, c.1990's. Marked size 10, Modern size 4-6.
