Fashion: Honky-tonk woman

She likes a drink and isn't averse to passing out, scantily-clad, in hotel lifts. She wears superslick leather (preferably cream), slithers of chiffon (preferably loud), and, of course, wicked heels and cool shades (preferably indoors). She's a rock star's wife. And wouldn't you love to be her? Styling by Lou Winwood. Photographs by Valerie Philips
