U2 fashion & style
« on: April 06, 2013, 01:22:54 AM »
Thought this would be a fun discussion.   

Being a HUGE Bono fan starting from the Unforgettable Fire days, most of my favorite "looks" were during THAT era - continuing to the Conspiracy of Hope tour/Amnesty tour and the beginnings of Joshua Tree Tour (not when they went cowboy). 

This kind of post has probably been done in some form or other but couldn't find it when I looked.

Name some of your favorite pieces of U2 fashion or style history.

I'll go first...

Bono's earrings

Love Bono's hair in this era.  I still want to grow my hair like that.  :)

I searched for these boots FOREVER back in the late 80s... never found them.  The closest thing I found were motorcycle cop boots.

The boots from Rattle and Hum are my favorite Bono boots. I have a pair that almost looks like them...

Anyway. Bono's best look is definitely this:

The gold jacket, the face makeup, the red shirt... I would wear all of that.

I love Adam's PopMart look:

And his red camo pants from Vertigo and Elevation, which I sadly can't find a picture of.

And his all-white attire from 360:

I adore Edge's all-white PopMart look too:

And returning to Bono, his leather pants:

Interesting way of cropping that... Nice belt buckle too.
