Heroin Chic

Heroin Chic was a look popularised in mid-1990s fashion and characterised by pale skin, dark circles underneath the eyes and angular bone structure. The look, emaciated and androgynous, was a reaction against the “healthy” and vibrant look typified by 1980s supermodels such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer.
