Elton John in His Closet, London, 1975

Sir Elton John is known for his outrageously amazing outfits that he pairs with equally outrageous pair of shades he’s been collecting since the 1970s. And he had shelves built into the eaves in his attic.

Here, Terry O’Neill captured Elton John, wearing a vest top and satin shorts, at his home in London, 1975, with part of his wardrobe, notably a large collection of platform shoes.

“That’s a great one. When I was at his home, I suggested we just walk around and I’ll take some photos of him with some of his collections. I was thinking at the time, he’ll show me some sculptures or paintings. Little did I know what I was getting myself into!” – Terry O’Neill
