Today is a significant birthday of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most enduring icons: Rolling Stones frontman (Sir) Mick Jagger turns 70! Over the course of a 50-year career, he’s been responsible for some of our most memorable songs and proven that rock ‘n’ rollers don’t have to die before they get old. And, perhaps most impressively, he’s a man not afraid to rock a leotard as he enters his eighth decade on the planet. As a lighthearted celebration, we’ve put together a gallery of some of his most… um, memorable outfits. Happy birthday, Sir Mick Jagger. Don’t ever change.
He makes his own jumpsuits, y’know…
…which is probably just as well, because, frankly, you can’t buy lace-up technicolor leggings at Uniqlo.
He’s got a whole wardrobe of ’em!
Pretty in pink, circa 2011.
That looks like velour. That is velour, isn’t it. Ye gods.
Accessorizing? That’s for chumps.
Meanwhile, animals died for this.
Why yes, that is indeed a flowing white dress he’s wearing. He probably borrowed it from David Bowie.
Not enough of that fabric left over for the tie, clearly.
The knee pads are a nice touch here (and practical for sliding across the stage, no doubt).
Seriously, what even is that jacket?
Mummy, why is that man wearing a sports bra?
And finally, let’s never, ever forget that this happened. Cocaine is a hell of a drug etc etc.
