PROFILE: STYLE ICON JORDAN
When it came to punk style, few did it quite like Jordan. No, not the glamour model Katie Price, but the alter ego of one Pamela Rooke.
Jordan was a well-known face on the King's Road, working in the SEX boutique – run by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren – which sold the clothes that defined the era. A full-time, real-life model for Westwood's designs, Jordan sported pins and badges, latex and bondage-gear, and rocked knickers as outerwear long before Lady Gaga.
She was into the music, too: a regular at Sex Pistols' concerts, Jordan famously once had her top ripped off onstage by Johnny Rotten. And she managed Adam and the Ants.
She also made time to dabble in some punk cinema, starring in Derek Jarman's films.
With bleached hair, sprayed into a bouffant puff or six-inch spikes, and gaudy face-paint or slicks of black eye-liner that make Amy Winehouse look like a barely-there beauty, Jordan often finished her look with a scowl, or a flick of the Vs.
