In honor of Brit songstress Adele, we’ve rounded up the best and worst pop style icons from across the pond.
Beatlemania: The Fab Four broke conventional stereotypes and shocked the world with their mop-tops.

Wannabes: In the ’90s, the Spice Girls stomped their way into our ears hearts with their platform trainers, and we’ve never fully recovered.
he’s strong, she’s outspoken, she’s one of Time’s most inﬂuential people in the world: She’s Adele Atkins, and since her debut on the world stage in 2008, she has quickly become a true style maven. We talked to the team at Daniel Galvin salon in London, who prepped Adele’s strands prior to her big night at this year’s Grammys, about her new look. Colorist Lucy Holbrook, who created the songstress’ lighter tones, comments: “We decided to make Adele’s hair a honey-colored blonde as it suited her complexion and really brought out the color of her eyes.” Holbrook says an ashier hue would wash out Adele’s classic English Rose look, and that “it was important to elect a color with plenty of depth to complement the bouncy, voluminous styles that she favors.” Lino Carbosiero, creative director at Daniel Galvin, styled the superstar’s locks. “We made Adele’s hair shoulder-length and cut a long layer through the back to give her a bit of swing and some natural movement,” he reveals. “Sophisticated hair is very in, so we wanted to create an old classic with a modern twist.” —Amy Dodds
Jedward: OK, so they’re technically Irish, but even if we aren’t sure whether identical twins John and Edward Grimes’ sky-high quiffs are ironic, we are certain that their collaboration with Vanilla Ice on their debut single is rather telling.
