For a time, starting in the early 1990s, Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen were inseparable—fashion muse and master—lovers without the sex. They shared something else: a self-loathing so intense it would devour them both, with Blow’s suicide in 2007 and McQueen’s in 2010. In an adaptation from her new book, Champagne Supernovas, Maureen Callahan reveals how two great British talents lost the battle of their lives.

Before Amy Winehouse’s beehive there was The Ronettes. They were an important force in popularizing the iconic hair-do and made it quintessentially diva. The Ronettes had a successful pop career in which they won a Grammy, charted on the Billboard top 100, were the only girl group that toured with The Beatles, and in 2007 they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Keep in mind that they did this all with fabulous hair! If you are looking to do something absurdly glamorous you should definitely consider rocking the beehive!
