35 Stunning Photos Show Annie Lennox’s Style in the 1980s

Born on Christmas Day 1954 in Aberdeen, Scottish singer-songwriter, political activist and philanthropist Annie Lennox was the lead singer of the Tourists, a British pop band between 1977 and 1980. After achieving moderate success with the band, she and fellow musician Dave Stewart went on to achieve international success in the 1980s as Eurythmics.


Lennox embarked on a solo career in 1992 with her debut album, Diva, which produced several hit singles including “Why” and “Walking on Broken Glass”. To date, she has released six solo studio albums and a compilation album, The Annie Lennox Collection (2009). With eight Brit Awards, which includes being named Best British Female Artist a record six times, Lennox has been named the “Brits Champion of Champions”. She has also collected four Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

In 2002, Lennox received a Billboard Century Award; the highest accolade from Billboard. In 2004, she received the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Into the West”, written for the soundtrack to the feature film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

Lennox’s vocal range is contralto. She has been named “The Greatest White Soul Singer Alive” by VH1 and one of The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by Rolling Stone. In 2012, she was rated No. 22 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music. In June 2013 the Official Charts Company called her “the most successful female British artist in UK music history”. At the 2015 Ivor Novello Awards, Lennox was made a fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, the first woman to receive the honor.

In addition to her career as a musician, Lennox is also a political and social activist, notable for raising money and awareness for HIV/AIDS as it affects women and children in Africa—this includes her SING Campaign which she launched in 2007. She founded women’s empowerment charity The Circle in 2008. In 2011, Lennox was appointed an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II for her “tireless charity campaigns and championing of humanitarian causes”. In 2017, Lennox was appointed Glasgow Caledonian University’s first female chancellor.

  1. You can't be f**king serious! This is not "Annie Lennox's" style. It is David Bowie's. Lennox completely ripped off Bowie's style, in some cases even copying outfits and makeup exactly.
    Man, reddit is right about this place, it is so full of shit it isn't even funny!
