Rock Stars Fashion: Praises & Friendly Advice

Singer Rihanna

The glittery beige bodysuit Rihanna is wearing looks like something Gaga worked on her Fame Ball tour. The black boots are hot too. The Mickey Mouse headgear, however, and the pink tank are mysteries to me.

Steven Tyler looks like a glamorous shaman in this photo. I suppose rock concerts do have a little in common in with certain Native American rituals.

Amy Winehouse

Amy is still rocking the beehive. Does anyone else wonder what she’s got hidden in there after all this time? Her black and tan silk dress looks lovely and lady-like, though she seems to be trying to take it off mid-song.

Gaga almost always looks haute couture hot but this is not the spiciest look. The white pants suit with the shoulder pads and rhinestones reminds me of outfits my mother’s friends wore to the office in the 90’s.

I kind of like Sting’s pirate-inspired jacket. I kind of want to wear it myself, actually.

P. Diddy is a well-dressed man. Love the neon yellow jacket and shades, as well as the obviously-intentionally-ripped-overpriced jeans from his Sean Jean line.

Fergie’s hair is so luscious here this could be a Vidal Sassoon commercial. I’m not sure I understand this metallic, apocalyptic costume, but it looks rad.

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland’s got what I call “unfortunate singing face” in this shot. However, her little sparkly, long-sleeved dress dazzles.

Madonna
Madonna
Hollywood.com Staff
’m not sure if Madonna is performing here or working out—she looks like she is using her guitar as a weight. Her Madgesty definitely has earned the right to wear fishnets and sheer bodysuits well into her 50’s, but I’m not sold on the top hat—it looks like she’s going to a New Years Eve costume party.

Nick Jonas

Now, here we have a slight variation on “unfortunate singing face”—“unfortunate drumming face.” Though Nick Jonas still manages to look pretty cute even with his nose all scrunched up.

Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke looks like a hipster lumberjack. All he needs is a trucker hat to complement his workboots, faded black jeans, t shirt and vest.
12
Katy Perry
Katy Perry
Hollywood.com Staff
Katy Perry looks like Princess Lolly in this Candyland-inspired outfit. The cookie dress is pure sugar, and the candy-cane boots look sweet enough to eat. It even seems that the lollipops are emerging from her head, as if she is actually turning into candy, Wonka style.

It appears Gaga had medieval shields glued to her lingerie to protect herself from the flames she conjures from her piano each night during her Flame Monster Ball.

Did Tim Burton design this Series of Unfortunate Fashion Blunders? Please note the terror in the eyes of the man crouching behind Adam Lambert.

Emily Osment
Emily Osment
Hollywood.com Staff
Emily Osment looks like she’s having a lot of fun up on stage—too bad she’s wearing three dresses on top of each other. If she just stuck to the pink one, she at could have at least worn it to the Disney prom.
17
Vince Neil
Vince Neil
Hollywood.com Staff
This is not the most favorable angle of Vince Neil, though he’s an attractive guy. I’m not sure how I feel about his Kid Rock-inspired get up—it’s a little too intentionally distressed. Now I’m distressed.

Usher

Usher’s all-white stage gear makes him look a bit like his own back up dancer.

The Edge
The Edge
WENN.com
The Edge of U2 looks like a normal guy in his black beanie, black tuxedo jacket, plaid shirt, black jeans and Converse. Which, I suppose, means that he actually looks abnormal—for a rock star. Way to be subversive.

Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger

Yeah, Mike Jagger, we caught you. That’s right, we caught you with your oversized beige Reeboks on. Don’t even try and call us out.

Jewel

I’ve always thought Jewel looked like a jewel, and here she has some on her dress. Intentional irony?

Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber
PNP/WENN.com
I wouldn’t go so far as to call Justin Bieber’s an “unfortunate singing face”—but it’s definitely a “singing face.” You can’t get much more Disney prep than hip kid bangs plus denim jacket.
23
Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera is a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice. I like her sequined tights and platform Louboutins, and the rest of the outfit matches well—there’s just so much of it. She’s even wearing two stud belts. When exactly did pop stars start wearing too many clothes?
24
Diana Ross

Diana Ross is a goddess, and dresses accordingly. All goddesses possess numerous lime green feathered coats and sequined gowns galore.

Leona Lewis

Leona Lewis looks like an ice-skating princess in this purple and rhinestone dress and headstar. The rhinestone teardrop below her eye is like a kiss from a snow fairy.
26
Norah Jones
Norah Jones
WENN.com
Norah Jones’s outfit is cute. Maybe a little too cute. Her red patent leather belt matches her lipstick and her keyboard, and the black and white polka dots are a nice, if predictable, contrast.
27
Leona Lewis
Leona Lewis

eona Lewis looks like a fem bot biker chic in her over the knee boots and chain gang dress. Maybe she could start a fem bot biker chic chain gang?

This is Chris Isaak. His guitar makes that quite clear.

Billie Joe Armstrong
Billie Joe Armstrong
Nick Pickles/ WENN.com
Once upon a time, Green Day was a poor little punk band that wore thrift store clothes. Then, one day, they became a rich, Grammy-winning punk band that wore clothes straight from Hot Topic. All hail the power of the fake workman’s vest.

Steven Tyler
Steven Tyler
WENN.com
Steven Tyler’s got one busy outfit. Wife beater, silver vest with studs and patches, tie-dyed pink and orange women’s scarf with screen printing. Even his jeans have writing on them. Maybe he is trying to distract from the fact that he’s an aging rock star? Don’t hide it, Steven—plastic surgery or no, you’ll always be classic.

Mary J. Blige is really heating up this little cap sleeve romper number. The black bandage style gladiators are extra sizzling.
32
Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough
Hollywood.com Staff
Julianne Hough’s sequined dress would work just as well for a party as it does up on stage, and her silver boots look like you could seriously rock and walk in them.
33
LeAnn Rimes

Did Leanne Rimes get this dress at Forever 21? Because I think I saw it there last season.

Lilly’s I Dream of Jeannie-inspired jumper, blue suede heels, and beehive are 1960s’ tops! Could do without the fringey blue leopard jacket though.
35
Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga
L. Gallo / WENN.com
Gaga looks like a Risky Business Madonna with her white hair, black shades, and lingerie-like unitard and fishnets. You rock that old time pop music, Lady.

I love me some Cyndi Lauper! Her Warhol-white ringlets are darling, and I like her sexy nautical suit jacket. You work it girl, time after time.

John Mayer
John Mayer
Hollywood.com Staff
In this pale yellow polo and plaid shorts, John Mayer (yet another helpless victim of “unfortunate singing face”) looks like he’s ready for a day at the golf course…or a day at MTV.
38
Sinead O'Connor
Sinead O'Connor
Hollywood.com Staff
Sinead O'Connor’s look seems more church appropriate than stage appropriate—though a really good concert is a kind of religious experience.
39
Jon Bon Jovi
Jon Bon Jovi
Hollywood.com Staff
Has Jon Bon Jovi ever worn anything other than an open vest and jeans? Hey, if it ain’t broke.
