Style Hero

The grunge god of the '90s was a major trend setter, and the look he helped popularize is taking over 2012. Kurt Cobain was one of those people who wouldn't let money change him. At the very peak of his fame when the cash was rolling in quicker than ever, he was still showing up on stage at sold out shows in the same old thrift store flannels. He managed to make the dirty Seattle, bed head, torn flannel, ripped up sneaks look high fashion -- and now with it returning to the runway some odd 20 years later, it's clear that his cultural impact was one that will never be forgotten. His insistence on remaining exactly who he was despite being a household name is not something we often see, and the level of comfort he had with himself must have been sky high. He didn't care about societal expectations, social classes or even gender barriers. He was just as comfortable in his well worn white tee as he was in a sundress. Complete self acceptance and acceptance of others is something we need more as a collective group of individuals, so let's look back at Kurt's contribution and celebrate what a cool human he really was.
