Eight Celebrities Who Had a Better Punk Phase Than Ivanka Trump

With the the release of Ivanka Trump’s memoir this month, news that Ivanka Trump had a goth phase growing up came out. However, this “phase” was blue hair, flannels, and listening to Nirvana, and it all lasted for a very short period of time.

Here are a few celebrities that had better punk phases than Ivanka Trump:

She wasn’t always a “teenage-dream.” Perry transformed into a dark, punk goddess during 2012. Her dark hair was near black, purple, and blue during this time. She also rocked the leather, spike bracelets and combat boots. 

  Miley Cyrus


Miley’s phase was probably one of the most famous. She left the innocent Disney cowgirl behind and replaced it with fishnets and spiky, bleached hair. She also rocked the dark makeup.

People pretty much worship Kanye (#Kanyeforpresident). One of the reasons is his style, especially when he’s standing next to Kim. However, like everyone else on this list, he, too, had a punk phase. Kanye sported the all-black, leather boot punk look for years.
