Prince's Wildest Outfits requested by Herb4

My gut reaction always goes to the 1991-1996 period. I actually enjoy a lot of the Gold Experiences quirky and out there styles. I don't think the band during this period ever looked on point with Prince but...

So I'm going to start it off with this one.


Please no disparaging or disrespectful comments about Prince

This isn't exactly wildest but man....a 52-year-old guy in tight, butt-approving white pants with a floating bolero top, shredding the life out of Purple Rain, does it for me.

Go to 26:00 in this W2A video and enjoy. Then stay for the bicycle riding.

"Boni Boyer was my best friend on tour. We shared dressing rooms together. She was a jokester. She was so funny. During sound checks she always had everyone laughing. She was multi-talented. Boyer was from Oakland. She was from the street. She would have Prince on the floor laughing. When she would walk onstage during sound checks, we would all immediately start laughing, because, we knew she was going to say something funny.

I remember we had a sound check in Europe and Boyer was a little late. Prince had on this green two-piece outfit with the alphabet on it. She was late and Prince said "Boni, you're late" and she had on silk pajamas. He said "Don't come on my stage and sound check with those silk pajamas on." Then, Boyer looked at me and Sheila E. --or me and Levi Seacer-- and she said "Yeah, but, you're wearing green pants with the alphabet on them."

We started laughing and we laughed so hard. She made everyone laugh. She was so confident. She was a great singer and a great musician. She could carry her own; she was awesome, funny and raw. I miss her, she was my best friend."

I don't know what kind of jamming Vanity could do considering she couldn't carry a tune in a bucket and had zero musical skill.

Did he ever really wear the same thing twice after Purple Rain? And even then? I know a section of Paisley Park was a dedicated wardrobe department.

Also, I always thought that in his later years it was weird that he wore pictures of himself and his album covers printed on his outfits (20ten and AoA come to mind). Reminded me of those halloween costumes where you got a plastic mask but the "costume" part had a picture of Superman or Batman on it with the words "superman" or "batman" printed on them.

IMagine Prince walking around at the 1984 AMA's with a flowing robe like shirt that had the cover of Purple Rain on it or showing up at the UTCM movie premier with the front and back covers of Parade on either side of the outfit.;lol

Yeah he wore the same thing twice+ after Purple Rain. If you mean outside of the album-era?

I don't know what I meant. Just dude had a shit ton of clothes I guess.

There's also this awesome whackiness. I can't decide if it's inspired by Elton John, P FUnk, Bowie or some amalgamation of the three but I love it

Prince-Bob-George-Lovesexy-Tour-1988.jpg

ah ok

he did wear those black / white stretch pants a lot over a period of time in the 2017-2011/12 period

.

I liked when he reused stuff and oufits

like the Parade outfit he wore during Lovesexy and added a ruffled shirt
