Amy Lee is the lead vocalist of rock band Evanescence. She is one of the most talented singers and songwriters in the 2000s music scene. She’s also a classically trained pianist, and her voice is mezzo-soprano. Her voice is so powerful, she can express very deep feelings when she sings. She doesn’t sing in Evanescence, she IS Evanescence. The band has been on hiatus since 2012, to let her pursue her solo career.
Amy recently released her first complete solo album since Evanescence in 2014. It’s called Aftermath and it’s the soundtrack of Mark Jackson’s movie War Story. This is just the latest of many highlights in this talented woman career. She’s won many awards throughout the years (Evanescence has been active since 1995). Amy Lee also won awards for her physical beauty and astounding style.
In 2012 she was voted ‘The Rock Goddess of the Year” at the Loudwire Music Awards. She also won the Revolver Golden Gods Award for “Best Vocalist” the same year. In 2013 she won the “Hottest Woman in Music” in the NME Awards. Quite an achievement if you think about all the other hot chicks in metal and rock bands out there.
Amy Lee is also a brave entrepreneur: she owns the Fat Lee Burger chain of restaurants, a football team, the Riverside Angels, and a fashion line named Amy Lee Seduction.
Amy Lee Style
Amy Lee is a walking fashion statement. She was one of the first Victorian goths to go mainstream between the 1990s and the 2000s. She has always rocked heavy gothic makeup, long black hair and Victorian style clothing. Some of her favourite items are corsets (of course), long skirts, and knee-high boots. Amy Lee has a strict “no skin flashing” policy. No nude photos, no skin flashing, no tricks to appeal to a wider audience. She just worked her way up with her talent and vocal abilities, and her cool style of course. Brocade Halter Corset – Hi-Lo Lace Dress – Black Buckles Boots
“Honestly, I just wear what I like. You know why? ‘Cause I can, I’m a rockstar.”
Hair. If you want to get a striking Amy Lee look you’ll need a couple of things to start with. Your hair needs to be black or at least a very dark colour. Grow it very long and don’t straighten it. Leave it in soft waves, if you have natural waves so much the better. If you don’t, try braiding your hair in 3/4 braids and leave them on throughout the night. Spray a little hairspray before taking out the braids.
Keep your hair off your face. Amy has a nice forehead and she loves to show it. Use bobby pins to keep your hair back. Leave your hair loose as much as you can.
Makeup. First things first, you need to achieve a fair complexion. If you don’t have naturally pale skin, keep away from the sun. Next step: use a light foundation, but don’t go more than one shade lighter than your skin tone. Or it might look like you’re wearing a mask. Remember to apply foundation on your neck as well. What are Amy Lee’s makeup bag must-haves? Black eyeliner, smoky eye palette, black kajal & black volumizing mascara. That’s all you need, make those eyes pop! She also likes dark red, burgundy lipsticks but that’s optional.
Clothes. Like we said before, go Victorian my friend. Amy Lee likes her clothing old style. She loves long ruffle skirts, she loves layers of tulle, she adores her lace. Her favourite top are corsets, she owns a million in every style. Amy Lee particularly enjoys the contrast between doll-like outfits and tough bottoms. She is often seen wearing ivory lace cute dresses and wide fishnets paired with knee-high huge Demonia platform boots. We would also say that Amy Lee is the best at rocking the white goth trend.
