Ever since Elvis discovered the catsuit, the power of the costume has gone hand in hand with legends of music. I thought it would be a great idea to revisit some of them here, complete with pictures:

Elvis and his Jumpsuit

Michael Jackson and Thriller

Madonna and her cones

Cher and her bit of material

Anyone any others??

Good selections! I 100% agree that all of those are iconic in pop music history.

Well, Cher has lots of memorable looks through the decades:

Though this one must be one of the most famous Cher outfits...

but people confuse it with the 'Turn Back Time' video one but it's actually a version of this 1970s dress ;)

Most of those Cher ones and the Shakira one aren't iconic at all. I think the key is if you went in fancy dress in the costume, is it obvious?
