Which High-Profile Model Inspired Brandon Flowers’ Brits Brilliance?

wenn5250728.jpgWhen Brandon Flowers stepped onto the stage at this years Brits 2009 in that jacket I died as I felt my own wardrobe implode with sheer joy. His jacket had major shoulder pads covered in long feathers and the overall look was a mixture of indie legend and an American footballer who had been given a makeover by Jean Paul Gaultier.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many people shared in my amazement and when I set my Facebook status to something Brandon-related immediately I had replies from fashion, music and technology writers all claiming to be either in love/ mad with envy or seeing double. I, myself, felt that I recognised the jacket and it wasn’t until the next day that I realised the model Brandon had obviously been taking style tips from…

77049_5_122_503lo.jpgThe answer is supermodel Lily Cole. This picture is from an editorial published a few years ago and while I couldn’t find the magazine the pic was taken from, there is no doubt that those feathered shoulder pads look awfully similar!

  • Actually as you probably know, Mrs Jones did the jacket, with no inspiration from anyone and only led to this idea by herself 🙂
    If anything the outfit Lily Cole is wearing was inspired by Mrs Jones.

    Kind regards,
