The early 80's saw the rise of a new, but short lived phenomenon - the appearance of cross-dressing pop stars. While the men were trying the look like women, the reverse also applied - although it wasn't as wide spread.

Probably the first 80's performer to popularise cross-dressing.

Marilyn soon followed.

Dead or Alive

Annie Lennox

Queen's 'I want to break free' had the entire band dressed up in shirts, frocks and a school uniform.

The Belle Stars
The Belle Stars were an all female British rock band and did adopt the androgynous look
