Annie Lennox totally killed it during last night’s Olympic closing ceremony. The singer, who got her start as one half of The Eurythmics, performed a rousing, pirate-y rendition of her hit “Little Bird,” which stood out against the four (four!) Jessie J performances and Fat Boy Slim’s faux DJ-ing. We were reminded of Annie’s super original look, especially her standout style during her early years with The Eurythmics, and decided to try and copy her boyish look. After the jump, we give you our best go at Annie’s signature “Sweet Dreams” style, softened just a touch.
