It literally took my breath away, the moment I received it, which was a bit sooner than I ever anticipated. As soon as I got it, I immediately started checking out the pages first, before even reading it, & WOW! WOW! WOW! That's a triple WOW right there. LOL :) The photographs were absolutely STUNNING! I especially loved the very front cover of the book, since it has Michael's ICONIC BAD Tour jacket, which happens to be one of my absolute faves!! I couldn't take my eyes off the amazing close ups/details of Michael's beautiful clothing/jackets, etc.
I do have to admit, there were some great parts in the book as well.
Hate to spoil it for everyone, but there was a section in the book that had me laughing like crazy, to which it was the part where Michael Jackson explained about why he wanted to rip his shirts once in a while, or cut it just a little bit, & the term he came up with was "cake" since he mentioned about his female fans wanting to "see some cake"(meaning his chest) & oh he was right about that one.
The next thing that I really liked in the book was when they talked about the four F's when it came to Michael's outfits! They are "FIT" "FUNCTION, "FUN" & "FIRST." I thought that was pretty neat & should also be pretty easy to remember when it comes to Michael's outfits!
Another part of the book that I really enjoyed was where they talked about the outfit for Michael's short film "Remember The Time" in which it was all Egyptian themed! As a youngster, I was always intrigued about Egypt & would watch things about it all from time to time. I still do once in a while, but not quite as much as I did back when I was young! Anyways, back to the subject!Read more ›
This is one of those MJ books that fans just gotta have, believe me. Why, the pictures of the outfits alone are worth the book price, but the backstory behind each piece is the icing on the cake. Every time you watch a YT video or a DVD of Michael's performances, you are seeing Bush and Tompkins' creations. Michael would provide the design impetus for a particular outfit and challenge Bush and Tompkins to "make it happen". They never failed him and he was always (eventually, ha) appreciative.
