Many famous musicians are well-known for their outstanding outfits besides their memorable performances and talent. Their unique stage costumes are a part of what makes them stand out from the crowd, so it’s worth looking into this phenomenon. Here are some animated illustrations that show top six musicians and their iconic outfits.
Though some might call her style controversial, we all have to agree that Lady Gaga deserves to be on this list. Her unique outfits have left us speechless on more than one occasion, and we’re sure she’ll have more to show us in the future. Let’s just remember 2010 MTV Video Music Awards when she came up wearing a dress made of raw beef! There’s no one else who could pull that off, right? Of course, there were various comments on her appearance, but according to the Time magazine, that was “fashion statement of the year.”
How could we not mention the King of Pop, right? Michael Jackson managed to reinvent himself more than anyone else. Whether he was wearing military-style jackets or tilted fedoras, he always looked awesome! Among many various accessories, his favorites were Aviator sunglasses and a single white glove.
Speaking of reinventing oneself, we have to mention Madonna, too. Back in the 80s, she was a ‘messy chic’ at the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards when she performed “Like a Virgin” in a punk-inspired prom dress. But, of course, there was so much more to come. What makes her style unique are, without a doubt, the ‘cone bra’ corsets, which were designed by a French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Not only did he enrich the music scene with his more than powerful vocal performances, but with wild stage outfits, as well. He is most often remembered by the famous ‘harlequin’ design, as well as a banana yellow jacket that he wore during Queen’s sell-out 1986 tour. He himself once said: “It’s not a concert you are seeing; it’s a fashion show.”
According to this great musician, “If you’re really going to entertain an audience then you have to look the part too.” As you know, he really stuck to that attitude all the way through his career, so today we all recognize his iconic Ziggy Stardust persona, as well as sharp suits and an iconic Union Jack tailcoat.
Last, but not least, we have this diva, who managed to turn even maternity wear into an epic trend! Beyoncé is now widely known as a fashion icon, and not just a pop star, and she started building this reputation back in 2003 when she left band Destiny’s Child.
So, no matter what some might think about certain stage costumes, it goes without saying that music and fashion go hand by hand. And these six superstars are proof that outfits can help you make your mark on the world music scene.[Budgetdirect]
