即使已年過70,但從未對華麗失去興趣,最誇張的歌壇大姑媽--Elton John。

人稱「樂壇大姑媽」的Elton John 縱橫音樂界超過半世紀,其浮誇風格一度被視為過氣、乏人問津。但是,隨著近年Gucci的Alessandro把1970年代的舞台風華帶回時尚天橋,加上Elton John本人宣布榮休、其傳記電影《Rocket Man》快將上映,一切的聚光燈又回到John的身上。

雖說同屬英式搖滾的華麗著裝,Elton John 因著他獨特的身形、面孔、髮形、姿態,與同時代的David Bowie有所不同,所以他詮釋的Glam rock style也別有一番生面。雖然未必像Bowie般英俊,但由Bob Mackie和Annie Reavy兩位設計師為他打造的舞台形象,也帶著一種玩世的誇張,強調樂趣多於一切,換言之就是camp王之王。

今天令Gucci 發光發熱的一切元素:刺繡、閃片、錦緞、羽毛、寶石……早在Elton John身上出現。愛音樂愛到把音符刺繡穿在身上,如此簡單直接的表達方式,就是那個黃金時代的溝精神,Elton John對美的追求也如出一徹。儘管台下的他曾經歷毒癮、暴食等負面問題影響,但卻從來沒有在藝途上氣餒,只要登上舞台或出席公開場合,他絕不留手將dress up盡行到底,而正是他今天又與如今這誇張的年代相合的原因,也是一個藝人終極應有的精神。
