From Blondie to Miss Marple: The incredible transformation of Debbie Harry

Starting out as a Playboy bunny she became one of the sexiest pin-ups of her day, but it seems rock legend Debbie Harry has finally ditched the fishnets.

Over the years she has shocked with her wacky sense of style but last night she turned heads with an Agatha Christie-inspired getup.

Sporting a buttoned up rainmac, tied scarf and velvet hat complete with bow, the 66-year-old singer could have been mistaken for super sleuth Miss Marple.

She also opted for minimal makeup, veering away from her trademark red lipstick and smokey eyes.

However she managed to inject a touch of rock chic with a neon green graffiti print Louis Vuitton scarf.

It is a sharp contrast to her usual fun-loving style.

‘I don’t know if anything’s changed that much for me style-wise as I still want to look really cool and sexy and feel comfortable.

‘I like to shop around; I do love Topshop, though,’ she told You Magazine last year.

However the weather could be to blame for Harry's conservative attire as it was a frosty -2 Celsius in New York.

This isn't the first time that Harry, whose hits have included Sunday Girl and Atomic, has come under fire for losing her way in the style stakes.

A tartan-inspired outfit, worn to the 2011 amfAR Inspiration Gala in LA last October received much criticism..

She
stepped out in an unflattering tartan red, black and white dress,
eccentrically teamed with fishnet pop socks, black elbow length gloves
and high heels.

Harry was
in New York to attend a screening of Haywire at the Landmark Sunshine
Cinema, which stars Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and Ewan McGregor.

Directed by Steven
Soderbergh, it tells the story of a female elite soldier who is out for
revenge after being double-crossed by her bosses on a previous mission.

Harry still tours and releases records with her band Blondie and her former boyfriend Chris Stein remains a member.
