Style Icon: Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury has been my idol since I was 15. While his voice is truly inspirational, he also had a great personal style. I know of very few others who can pull off a sparkly silver unitard! His onstage outfits are were dramatic, emphasizing what a great showman he was. However, I'm equally inspired by his offstage style whether it's a simple striped tee or an amazing floral jacket that I wish hung in my closet! What do you think? Are you inspired by any past or present musicians? (Photos from allthetests.com, frankpicturegallery.com, imageshack.us, tumblr.com, treesong.org, rockmusic.org)

Def one of the greatest rock stars ever. What did you think about Adam Lambert being compared to him? I, myself, just don't think anyone can be compare to Mercury =)
