Music

Beck

Beck has come a long way since writing songs like “Loser” and “Devil’s Haircut” but oddly enough his fashion sense is still pretty much the same. Pick up a leather jacket and dress pants at the thrift store and you can pass as ’90s or present day Beck. The boombox is optional.

Lisa Loeb

Lisa Loeb became America’s sweetheart when she burst onto the music scene with her song “Stay.” While she may be considered a one-hit wonder to some, her style has managed to stick around. While dressing in all black is simple you really need the tortoise shell cat eye frames to make this look work. Otherwise people might just think you’re a beatnik.

What Does the Fox Say?

In The Fox, the Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis seeks to answer the age old question, “What Does the Fox Say?” Everyone already knows that “Dog goes woof, cat goes meow. Bird goes tweet, and mouse goes squeek.” But did you know that the fox goes “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!” and sometimes even “Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!” or “Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!” Obviously.

Björk

Björk’s white swan dress, made by Macedonian designer Marjan Pejoski, was worn to the 2001 Academy Awards. The dress is one of the most memorable Oscar outfits ever. Björk laying eggs as she walked the red carpet might have something to do with that.

Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie took fashion to a new level when he unveiled his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust. Part rock star, part alien-being, it takes more than just a colorful unitard and elaborate makeup to pull off this look. You need the confidence to go along with it. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt if you can sing.

Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury was the frontman for Queen best known for his hits “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, and “We Are the Champions”. Mercury was also well known for his stage performances and flamboyant outfits. If you’re feeling courageous, you could try on one of the many form fitting leotards that he wore on stage.

Buckethead

Buckethead is one of the greatest guitar players in the world – as a solo artist, as a member of Guns n’ Roses, and as a collaborator with the likes of Iggy Pop and Les Claypool. He’s also one of the weirdest guitarists, best known for wearing a fried chicken bucket on his head.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has come a long way from her days as Disney starlet Hannah Montana. She made headlines at the VMA with her interesting dance moves and outfit choices.

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke is a singer-songwriter, musician, and actor who made headlines by dressing up as Beetlejuice at the Video Music Awards while Miley Cyrus twerked up on him.

Bret Michaels

Bret Michaels may have swapped big hair for cowboy hats when it comes to his style but he’s still making the ladies swoon. You may never reach rock star status or even reality TV star status but no one is saying you can’t look like one. By combining elements of rock n’ roll with country, Bret’s look is easy to achieve. Feeling gutsy? Throw on some black eyeliner and take the karaoke stage with “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
