15. Gwen Stefani

Hers is the face that launched ska's third wave, compelled Claire's to mass-produce bejeweled bindis, and brought Harajuku makeup from the streets of Tokyo to TV sets around the world. The beguiling beauty of Gwen Stefani is how she pulls it off again and again. She transitions from Dickies and Vans to cardigans and platinum pin curls as easily as she transitions from a girlish coo to a warbly, womanly belt. Every time she remakes herself, she makes us fall in love with her again. We'll eat up whatever the girl is slinging, cause everything she does is bananas -- B-A-N-A-N-A-S. -Tessa Stuart

14. Stevie Nicks

From her boho look before it was chic to her angelic features, Stevie Nicks redefined what it meant to be a rock star in the late '70s. Her classic California beauty made her the girl you could take home to your parents, but her wild streak made her the perfect companion for a night on the Sunset Strip. With a husky yet tender voice that could rock you one minute and make you cry the next, no one could put a spell on men quite like Nicks. -Dan Kohn

13. Nico

Nico is sexy in the way that a crying woman is sexy. Everything about her seemingly longs for comfort -- from you -- and her voice makes you desperately want to give it. You want to grab her and tell her everything is going to be okay, even though you know that's a lie. Nico made the dating rounds among the royalty of proto-punk, including Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, but none of them ever made her happy. Her sorrow is part of what makes her sexy. -Nicholas Pell
