What a find: the fashion book from 1977 “How to look punk” was written as an attempt of a guide on how to dress and use make up to look punk, found on Smith Journal.
And here their suggestions on what went wrong in the book:
- If Belinda Carlisle’s on the cover (and she is), you’re doing it wrong (remember her? –> 😂 )
- If you compare punk makeup to Star Wars characters, you’re doing it wrong (😂😂 )
- If you use the phrase “funky punky”, you’re doing it wrong
- If you write a book about how to look punk, you’re doing it wrong.
