No matter your opinion of Elton John’s music, there are two things you must admit about the former-Reginald Kenneth Dwight: 1) Sir Elton Hercules John is an amazing name, and 2) his outfits are legendary. Well before Lady Gaga made frog-head dresses fashionable, Sir Elton was wearing whatever LOUD costume he wanted to, including keyboard hats and mustard yellow jackets, both on-stage and off. The man knew how to out Muppet a Muppet.

Today, on his 66th birthday, we take a look back at some of Elton’s greatest fashion statements over the years. Needless to say, if you were thinking of giving him a tie as a present, don’t — unless it lights up, makes noise, and has seven pink crocodiles wearing blue-and-red tuxedos on it. In which case, as you were.
