If anyone every tells you to work on your resting bitch face, point them in the direction of Kim Gordon. Would the Sonic Youth member be the style icon she is today if she smiled more?

Back in the day, Gordon wore her fringed leather skirt with a baggy tee and mixed prints like they were designed to go together.
