Cyndi Lauper: I love fashion

Cyndi Lauper is "obsessed with fashion".

The pop icon is known for sporting some unusual styles over the years.

The 59-year-old says one of her favourite looks is the bright pink hair colour that she rocked in the mid-1980s, which she still likes to wear today.

"I always liked that salmon-pink hair colour; I still use it," Cyndi revealed to "I'm obsessed with fashion."

Cyndi showcases her life in a new reality TV series called Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual.

The fashion-forward singer revealed the secret to her unique style is to take a trend and twist it to reflect her own personal taste.

This can be seen in the way she has maintained a sexy and edgy twist in everything she has worn through the decades.

"I loved the retro-glam look, but I wanted to make it my own, so I wore high heels and pedal pushers, which nobody was really wearing at the time," Cyndi explained.

Cyndi has experimented with more subdued looks over the years as well as the bright colours, crimped hair and bold make-up she burst onto the scene with.

In 2003 while promoting her album At Last, Cyndi donned all-black ensembles with her hair styled poker straight. The icon managed to make a black suit, accentuated with an unusual accessory such as a gold bra, one of her signature looks.

Last year the style chameleon showed off two distinctive looks when she appeared firstly at the Grammy Awards dressed in her black vampy style staple with streaks in her hair. She then switched things up by chopping her hair into a cropped blonde style, which she debuted at the American Music Awards with a plaid and black shirt dress.
