"A Look Back" is a daily column that highlights a moment from fashion's fabulous past. Today's pick is of Kim Gordon performing with her band Sonic Youth in 1986. Gordon shocked the music world last fall when she announced not only the indefinite breakup of the beloved band, but also her divorce from bandmate Thurston Moore, thus ending one of the greatest power couples in the history of alternative rock. Since then, the singer has been keeping busy working on her art, playing with her new band Body/Head and collaborating on a clothing line with French creative group Surface to Air. No stranger to the fashion week circuit, she was particularly busy this season hosting parties in Paris and attending top fashion shows (the songstress practically has a permanent spot on Rodarte's coveted front row). What do you think of her legendary stage look?
