Sky Ferreira's Debbie Harry dress sense

Sky Ferreira finds her skin suffers when she travels between New York and Los Angeles a lot.

Sky Ferreira dressed like Debbie Harry without knowing it.

The Blondie frontwoman first rose to fame in the ‘70s, and has been a fashion icon ever since. With Sky’s blonde hair and sense of style, the 23-year-old shares certain similarities with the legendary singer.

“I didn’t realise until I was older that I dress similar to Debbie Harry,” Sky smiled to Britain’s Marie Claire magazine. “She’s like the Marilyn Monroe of punk-rock music. I love everything she stands for. And even though I haven’t dressed like her personally, I also love Madonna’s pale-skinned, ‘90s look in her Frozen video – it’s very underrated.”

She’s also previously shared that Kurt Cobain is her hair inspiration, as well as her musical hero.

Sky is hard at work on her second album, Masochism, which hits the shelves later this year (16). It follows on from her debut record Night Time, My Time, but travelling around to lay down the album’s tracks is taking its toll on her complexion.

“Going back and forth between New York and LA can do a number on my skin,” she sighed. “One city is very dry and one is very humid, so I use SEQuaderma and Shiseido products a lot. I never used to, because I always had great skin, but all the make-up and travel eventually takes its toll.”

As well as her music career, Sky has also experimented with modelling. She’s currently the face of Paco Rabanne’s Black XS Los Angeles for her fragrance, and star’s in the fashion house’s print campaigns. The smell of the perfume hit the right notes for Sky, who says a spritz of Black XS evokes powerful memories for her.

“Growing up, I used to go to Venice Beach every day. In a weird way it reminds me of Paco Rabanne’s Black fragrance, because of the coconut smell,” she smiled. “My dad used to use coconut oil all the time. It’s really fresh and light.”
