Through all phases of Queen's career, Freddie Mercury was a trendsetter in fashion -- and also a follower! In the beginning there were the glam outfits, the leotards and short-shorts, then the leather phase, then the white-jeans-and-muscle-shirt phase.
Which is your favourite Freddie stage outfit?
Mine is, and forever will be, the white satin Zandra Rhodes pleated top with the white satin trousers and black platform shoes. That's MY Freddie! :-)

Hmmm so hard to choose

I'd say the checkered unitard.

Oh, and the yellow jacket from Wembley 86.

Good choices!!
Really, I'd love Freddie in anything, including the proverbial birthday suit (!!), and I loved every single stage outfit he wore, but the Freddie I fell in love with was wearing what I mentioned in the first email on this thread.
WHOOHOOOOOO! *thud*

Freddie looked superb in the white jacket at Wembley, during Now I'm Here. I also liked the Game tour look, white jeans, Adidas, and Flash or Superman t-shirts. The only time I ever cringed was watching a video of the Jazz Tour in Japan, and during WWRY (slow) he was carried onto stage by a guy in a Superman outift, and Freddie was wearing a shimmering red sequined outfit. That was possibly the only one I disliked. But the early Zandra Rhodes outfits were breathtaking.

The only thing I don't like seeing Freddie in is those little skin-tight shorts. I'm totally secure with my sexuality, but seeing another man's genitals portruding through his shorts while trying to put on a rock concert is not not my cup of tea. :P

I've always wanted to have a Flash T-Shirt that Freddie wore on several occasions in the 1980-1981 Tour.


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

LOL I don't like that look either!
Beginning of the 80's he looked as everyone else in the 80's, IMO that style was the worst.

I'd say the Magic tour also! The shoes.....!!!!

But he looked pretty good in suits, too.

I love the Superman shirt, actually. On the Frankfurt 80 bootleg, after a couple songs you hear someone in the audience saying, "it's Superfreddie". :)
