This was way harder than we anticipated! Boy, does Elton John know how to make a statement! From sequins, to top hats, and everything in between, here’s his very best looks from the 1970s onward.


This look takes us back to 1975, when Elton John (pictured here with singer Bette Midler), was on the ‘Cher’ TV show on CBS. This outfit has a three reasons for making this list: mini disco balls, star-shaped glasses, and a massive top hat.

Well this is just self-explanatory. Elton John’s duet of “Crocodile Rock” with The Muppets, as he’s wearing a bejeweled swim cap and multi-coloured feathers, is over-the-top perfection!


What’s great about this look is that it’s right on-theme. If Elton John was going to perform at Dodger Stadium, we would expect nothing less than a sequined baseball uniform – and this is a home run!

Throwing it back to this epic performance at the 1992 MTV Music Video Awards, when Elton John took the stage for a dueling piano’s version of Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain”. This makes the list because Elton John kicked up his hard core side and donned a pair of leopard print shorts under his suit jacket! Sweet!


And to just show that every little detail is accounted for, take a look at his outfit from the 2018 GRAMMY Awards. It was entirely bedazzled with sequins, frills, and glinty diamonds – right down to his custom “Elton” ring! Trust us, the ring on his other hand spelled out “John”.

Watch Paul try and channel his inner Elton John, because imitation is the highest form of flattery…right?!
