Story: Wendy James was adopted soon after her birth and she left apodtion home at the age of sixteen moving to Brighton. In Brighton she met Nick Christian Sayer, with whom she fell in love and also started making music with. Couple moved to London and formed a pop-punk band Transvision Vamp with friends Dave Parsons, Tex Axile and Pol Burton. James became a lead singer and she attracted media with her sexual and rebellious image. Band was signed by MCa in 1987 and in 1989 they reached their succes with album Velveteen. After Transvision Vamp split up Wendy continued on to a solo career. She collaborated with Elvis Costello who wrote her new material. She released her solo album Now Ain't the Time for Your Tears in 1993. When her solo album did not reach succes, she took a break from music scene. In 2004 she formed a band called Racine. The group released two albums before splitting up in 2008. In 2010 she released yet another solo album.
Style: Wendy has been known for her platinum blonde sex kitten look. Transvision Vamp relayed on the media attraction over Wendy's image and after this she has kept up her appearance. Her look is based on her thin frame, platinum blonde bob and lucious lips. She has always had a little trashy look giving her a bad girl image. She has never tried to disguise her sexuality over modest or subtly stylish clothes, but her outlook has been directly what she is.
