Annabella was a bit of a revelation in the early days of MTV.
The English accent, the exotic looks with the Mohawk, the hotness factor. Annabella Lwin, born Myant Myant Aye in Rangoon, Burma on October 31, 1966 to a Burmese father and an English mother, was something different. Fronting the new wave band Bow Wow Wow, Annabella was only 13 when she joined the group and courted controversy when, at age 15, she appeared nude on an album cover replicating Manet’s Le Dejeuner sur l’herbe. The singer, songwriter and record producer still pops up here and there to perform the old Bow Wow Wow songs and new material, and appears at concerts benefiting animal charities.
