5.0 out of 5 stars Michael's Unique Style! May 13 2013
By MaryMJ
Format:Hardcover
This is a one of a kind book on Michael Jackson's costumes, apparel and accessories written with warmth, humour and great knowledge. It reminds everyone of all the great and good things associated with Michael, his deep creativity and passion for all life, as well as his larger than life visionary style. Beautifully photographed close ups of many iconic outfits and jackets, the opulent styles and rich colours shine through every page. It conveys the magic and mystery of Michael's image created by his loyal costume designers Michael Lee Bush and Dennis Tompkins over a 25 year period, explaining in great detail how ideas were brought to fruition and the deep thought processes of these three genius men. Michael was able to trust them implicitly to bring into being his most expressive and sometimes outrageous ideas! Bush, as Michael always called him comments that MJ thought "so far outside of the box, you'd need a plane ticket to fly back into it!"

This will appeal to all MJ fans and those passionate about costume construction. I use it as a wonderful reference book to inspire my own customised jackets and am constantly amazed at the diversity found here. Michael loved to keep people guessing as it meant they were paying attention… through his stunning stage performances, and his costumes reflect this too. His kingly regalia is described as Liberace Gone to War which is a fantastic image in itself! The one off pieces such as the Dinner Jacket are delightfully explained: Michael presented them with riddles to solve and this one was in the form of late night phone calls asking what every person in the world could identify with! They then had the seemingly impossible task of finding ways to attach cutlery to the jacket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful & interesting! March 30 2013
Format:Hardcover
As the author of "Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy" about the incomparable Michael Jackson, I was not impartial when I read this book. I thought that I would thoroughly enjoy it. However, it was better than I thought it would be. This book provides a great overview of the glamour, creativity, charisma, and uniqueness of Michael Jackson the King of Pop. I recommend it for anyone who admires Michael and anyone who is interested in fashion, especially in the entertainment industry. This is an ideal book for your cocktail table or the bedside table in a guest room. Thank you, Michael Bush.
