Transsexual Star Amanda Lear Sings About Fashionistas: A YouTube Treasure

Categories: Music


Model turned Salvador Dalí muse and singer Amanda Lear brightened the '70s with her disco vamping, which was giddy, chic, and alluringly mysterious.

Above is a video of the French star singing about the "Fashion Pack" and their attempts to sashay into the era's top hot spot, Studio 54.

Perhaps it should be remade by that other transsexual personality named Amanda.

As a bonus, here are more recent shots of Lear.

She's still leading the fashion pack!

BY the way, Lear has never said she's a transsexual. According to the link, a friend talked about Amanda's past and Amanda cut her off.
