See the picture of paul rodgers on the queen wikipedia page - waering a pink suit jacket.

See the way freddie would never wear something so ridiculous looking (forget about the leotards and leather, but he pulled them off!). freddie always looked so interesting whereas paul rodgers looks like a puffed up marsh mallow

Freddie was wearing ridiculous clothes ALL the time, on stage and off stage as well. We met Paul after the Frankfurt gig and he told us that he bought the pink jacket at Rome one week before the gig...

Wrong forum, Una!

But the pink jacket is actually realy not that bad.
It would not fit Freddie though, as much as Freddie's outfits would not fit Paul.

Btw: radio_wats_new, I think I recall Paul said he bought the RED jacket in Rome....

ehmmm... sorry to say but that pink coat really reminds me of a suit from the video of The Great Pretender by FM. Don't you think?

Btw, Freddie and ridiculous clothing: remember the video for It's A Hard Life? The red-eye costume.

Ok but the point is obvious, i think freddie could get away wearing ridiculous...amazing way to be, like take the wembley costume, only freddie could have pulled it off, he dressed like a star someone interesting

no no no no (with a John Deacon voice)
Since I liked the jacket very much and asked Paul where he bought it, I'm absolutely sure it was the pink jacket. (lekker belangrijk trouwens)

I've always loved Freddies styling btw. Although his clothes weren't always the outfits I would choose to wear, I think Freddie had a very good sence for combining colour. Everything always seemed to match.

Best outfit ever:

Fantastic shoes :-)

Basic, but very good styling:

Although I think Paul's pink jacket is great, I agree with you. 90% of the time Paul's outfits are amazingly kitsch in my honest opinion. I've heared that his wife designs them... Think the man is blinded by love... :-)

Nice topic by the way!

Q&PR vs Queen arguments aside - Paul would be facing an awesome challenge to compete with Freddie's visionary, inspired fashion sense....So would most mere mortals. Freddie had the future-looking advantage of a fine-artist trained eye, awesome, inspiring and UNIQUE. PLUS the body to be able to get away with such styles.
