Fabcon: Anita Pallenberg

Oh, what I would give to travel back to the '60s and be a fly on the wall when Anita Pallenberg, once common-law wife of Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, ruled the rock 'n roll scene. It was a largely male-dominated industry, yet Anita had a unique musical influence over the band.

Born on January 25, 1946 in Rome, Italy, Anita was a model, actress, and has more recently become a fashion designer. But nothing makes her more well-known than her non-musical connection to the Stones. Besides having three children with Keith, Anita was romantically involved with band member Brian Jones, and also rumored to have hooked up with Mick Jagger. Given Anita's wild ways, I wouldn't be surprised.

While Anita's partying ways are intriguing, I'm more drawn to her unfussy boho style. Before the Siennas and the Kates (she's actually friends with Kate), Anita epitomized the hippie-chic style. Everything we wear now, she's already worn: stacked bangles, fur coats, gladiator sandals, wide belts . . . Because of her sass, courage, and style, she carved herself a place in the world. And what a rockin' place!

I almost got my hair cut like how she had it in the movie Performance. I love music and clothes from the 1960s.
