RIP Punk Queen Edwige Belmore

by Paper
OG punk icon, Edwige Belmore, passed away today and creatives, punkers and fans alike are taking to social media to pay their tributes to the French model/actress/singer and muse. A fixture in the late '70s/'80s nightlife scenes in NYC and Paris and contemporaries with Vivienne Westwood and Debbie Harry, Belmore also fronted the band Matematiques Modernes, modeled for Helmut Newton, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler and was credited as the first to mix high-low fashion after she came onstage for one of her shows in a Chanel jacket and bra.

While details of her passing are scarce, one thing's for sure: the world just got a little less badass.

RIP.
