Fashion Flashback: Liberace
Liberace was pop-culture, piano playing superstar from the 50′s through the 70′s. He was known for his exuberant performances, over the top showmanship and outrageous costumes. We’re talking OUTRAGEOUS costumes. He was one of the first obviously gay celebrities- though he never admitted to that and his old-lady fan base would never believe it anyway. His wardrobe full of rhinestones, diamonds, fur, and huge stage jewelry outed him regardless. Many of his costumes are on display at the Liberace Museum, but if you can’t make it to Vegas check out some of his looks after the jump.
