I feel the same way. I love wearing colored tights. I bought a few pair of the Vera Wang colored tights. They are pretty good quality. I chose a teal and bright blue.

OHHHH MYYYY GOSH

Debbie Harry

With the 2 tone hair was so mesmerizing like a goddess.

She was one of the most mesmerizing women of all time. She would wear almost obscene (for the time) dresses and then get away because the matching tights covered up the flesh... You have to remember Heart Of Glass came out over 30 years ago. I was 20 at the time. Everytime I saw an album cover with her on it I thought I was going to melt.

Anyway check out this about the dress and is the link of the video where she is like wearing tights (or dark pantyhose.


The "Heart of Glass" promotional video was filmed at the Studio 54 discothèque in New York City with director Stanley Dorfman. The video begins with footage of New York City in the night before joining Blondie perform at Studio 54. Then, the video alternates between close-ups of Harry's face as she lip-syncs, and mid-distance shots of the entire band. In the video Harry wears a silver asymmetrical dress designed by Stephen Sprouse.[9] To create the dress, Sprouse photo-printed a picture of television scan lines onto a piece of fabric, and then, according to Harry, "put a layer of cotton fabric underneath and a layer of chiffon on top, and then the scan-lines would do this op-art thing."[10] The popularity of the song helped Sprouse's work earn a lot of exposure from the media.[11]

"Draped in a sheer, silver Sprouse dress," Kris Needs summarized while writing for Mojo Classic, "Debbie sang through gritted teeth, while the boys cavorted with mirror balls". Studying Harry's attitude in the "effortlessly cool" video, music writer Pat Kane felt she "exuded a steely confidence about her sexual impact ... The Marilyn do has artfully fallen over, and she's in the funkiest of dresses: one strap across her shoulder, swirling silks around about her. Her iconic face shows flickers of interest, amidst the boredom and ennui of the song's lyrics." Kane also noted that the band members fooling around with disco balls, "taking the mickey out of their own disco fixation."[12] Reviewing the Greatest Hits: Sound & Vision DVD for Pitchfork Media, Jess Harvell wrote that while "owning your own copy of 'Heart of Glass' may not seem as cool [anymore] ... there's the always luminous Deborah Harry, who would give boiling asparagus an erotic charge, all while looking too bored to live."

To get the same effect wear 2 pairs of pantyhose at once.
