Debbie Harry in a red sheath dress and matching patent leather over the knee boots. She poses in the photo studio with musical instruments in New York City, 1978. The photographs were taken by Allan Tannenbaum.
The godmother of the New York punk scene, Debbie Harry, Blondie’s leading lady, set the stage for the 1980s punk revolution in the 1970s with her iconic white-blonde hair, mini-dresses, and over-the-knee latex boots. Sexy, with just the right amount of daring (animal prints were a Harry signature at the time), Harry’s style was all about being an individual.
