Heart of Class
« PLATINUM BLONDIE
A VISIONARY, 1978: For the "Heart of Glass" video, "Stephen Sprouse [who designed many of her clothes] blew up the pixels from a TV screen and made this print. He put a layer of cotton fabric underneath and a layer of chiffon on top, and the scan lines would do this op-art thing."
A TIME TO REFLECT, 1978: "This is the mirror suit," says Harry. While two guys in the pit shined spotlights on her, "I'd have these truck mirrors in my hand, hold them up and blind everyone in the audience. They'd all go, 'Aagggghhhhh!' It was so much fun."
BANDIT QUEEN, 1978: "Those were my street clothes," insists Harry, though she can't explain the handkerchief over her face.
THE TRUMAN SHOW, 1979: "Oh, man! It's Truman [Capote], look! And he does look like William Blake! He does!" says Stein, recalling the Studio 54 party thrown for Blondie's Interview magazine cover. "And there's Lorna Luft! Andy Warhol was there, but he was like the Pope. He didn't have to say anything when he walked into a room."
