Elton John, Star, 1973

About the image
Elton in an all-white ensemble adorned with feathers and his trademark large sunglasses, circa 1973. Early in his career Elton recognized that to fill a stadium with 100,000 fans the performer not only had to act the part but look dazzling. As soon as Elton had a disposable income he filled his wardrobes with costumes and platform shoes.
