So I heard that it was Elton John night this week on American Idol. For the record: I do not watch American Idol.
Then: It is hard to describe the spectacles once worn by Sir Elton John, but I’ll give it a try. Whimsically wonderful. Flamboyantly fun. Contagiously Crazy…? See, I told you it is hard. Anyone with the amount of talent as Sir Elton doesn’t need an explaination for fashion choices. You just have to appreciate the awesomeness.
Now: While Elton John’s early career was marked by his incredibly insane (wow, i really need to stop with the adjectives today) style, his look has become more refined these days. Just look at the evolution of his taste in glasses. I guess when you are a Knight you have to tone it down a little. Even though Elton’s look has changed, his legacy of outlandishness has yet to fade. Go into any costume shop and you will find hundreds of replicas of famous Elton-esque frames.
