8. Jaden Smith
He’s the youngest son of Will Smith and the youngest fashionable celebrity to don the list. Jaden Smith was already known just for being born. As he got older, he started appearing in films just like his mother and father--most memorably in Pursuit of Happyness with his father and more recently in The Get Down. Along with his oftentimes cryptic Twitter, Jaden has been known to dress however he likes, whether that means wearing dresses and skirts or pairing crazy patterns with crazy patterns. At only 18 years old, he’s already made quite the visible mark on Hollywood. Here’s him doing a photoshoot for GQ, where he’s dressed in clothes that fit his personality just right.
7. Boy George
Hopefully his eccentric taste in clothes didn’t hurt you or make you cry. Boy George’s look definitely spoke to a corner of 80s culture that seemed to mean wearing everything and anything was up for grabs.
Iceland has graced the world with lots of artistic talent--such as the world famous pop star Bjork--who’s graced the celebrity world with her unique sound, crazy antics, and just as crazy style. From all the store windows of teen fast fashion stores, we all know that the 90s are back. And no one rocked that quirky 90s girl look better than this violently happy artist.
5. Nicki Minaj
Does anyone else remember that time Nicki wore this leopard meets Bride of Frankenstein dress she wore to the Grammy’s one year? It was back during her much more , let’s call it otherworldly, sense of fashion. Let’s not forget the 2012 Grammy’s where her performance featured her handcuffed on a black slab acting like she was possessed. Her crazy persona is just part of who she is, even if she’s toned it down now--at least for the time being. Minaj opts for more basic, neutral looks nowadays. Perhaps it was a sign of maturity, or just a reflection of what she’s doing now as an artist.
4. Lady Gaga
Meat dress. Need we say more? Ever since Lady Gaga showed up on the scene with her single “Shut Up and Dance” she’s not only been wowing the public with her energetic and at times soulful pop music, she’s also been a thought-provoking sight on and off the red carpet in terms of her clothing. Here she is with sunglasses, where it’s not known how much she can see out of the surrounding gold plated rim. She’s been known to dress quite eccentrically even when she’s not attending any sort of Hollywood event. She’s even said that she’s always dressed the way she wants to, and that her appearance in itself is a statement wherever she goes, even if that meant going to the convenience store in platform heels. As of late, however, with the release of her newest album Joanne, she’s toned down her style, opting for denim cutoffs and tees instead.
Not only was Prince a symbol in name once, but he will always be a fashion symbol. Although men often get made fun of when they’re below average height, at 5’3”, Prince turned the idea of masculinity and femininity on its head--and it showed in his fashion. Who else could get away with dressing up as Batman and the Joker and still look insanely cool? Not many. Some of his notable outfits include his over-bejeweled vest he paired with an all-pink ensemble, the gold hot pants he wore during his first TV appearance on Midnight Special, and of course, his most recognizable, the purple dandy suit with the puffy shirt.
2. Grace Jones
This purple on purple on purple is probably the more casual, toned down looks the incredible Grace Jones has graced the world with. The Jamaican musical artist is known for her fierce androgynous looks and intense fashion that only she pull off while you sit in the corner feeling inferior.
1. David Bowie
And then of course, no list like this would be complete without the one and only David Bowie. The iconic rock star went through many style changes throughout his vibrant, decades-long career. But you never saw him not looking on point, even if he’s just in a T-shirt and trousers. It’s hard to believe since his most iconic looks are from the 70s, such as this topographical map jumpsuit he’s got going on, but he was a mod at the beginning of his career. Mod fashion was a lot more toned down, as mods often wore well-tailored suits. During Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane days were when his most recognizable looks emerged, with his colorful leotards, sparkles, and platform heels, Glam Rock Bowie will always be one of the cornerstones of eccentric celebrity fashion.
