Elton John's style through the years

Tommy

Though Elton John, 63, has toned it down in recent years — he feels he’s too old for sparkles and sequins — the performer has a long legacy of outlandish fashion. From his feather-adorned glasses to his Donald Duck suit, John’s outfits and accessories have gotten him as much attention as his music. We look back at the singer’s ever-evolving style.

1975: As the big-booted Local Lad in “Tommy,” John was technically wearing a costume (above), but the rhinestone glasses were an Elton John wardrobe staple at the time

1977: What do you wear for a duet with Miss Piggy? Why a pink, sequined jumpsuit, of course.
