Well, he wore draggy makeup in that one Lovesexy era promo shot and simulated being topped by one of the Game Boyz in '92 or so. I reckon there was very little. Perhaps he would never wear a dress.

It wasn't a gown. Caftans for men were very popular in the 70s. Longer tunics were just as popular. Barbarella wore one at times, too. It's like saying he wore a mini dress over pants during the Emancipation special. It was just a longer jumper. He was definitely blurring gender lines, though.

That's not to say he was really make-up heavy in the mid 90s. Lovesexy was a heavy makeup time, too. I never liked it that much in 1988. He seemed to go heavier w/ eye makeup in the 90s (with those high-waist pants and short cropped jackets).

In the end, the fancy lesbian did whatever he wanted. And we loved him for it.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Just google search caftan and tell me what you see. smile

I mean... I know what a caftan is, and I'm old enough to remember all the adult men wearing them at parties.

The caftans are not the issue, the ideas are.

I guess you did not read my posts at all.

BTW: how many countries with these caftan-wearing people did you visit?

I think you're replying to the wrong person. It is Trivial Pursuit who is into the caftan gang. Not I.

PliablyPurple

Funny how times change people's perception of something as simple as a piece of clothing. Fast forwarding through centuries of use in other cultures, Richie Havens was considered hippy looking @ woodstock in his kaftan. And thank god Black Moses didn't have to deal with the internet in '71 smile. In fact, quite the opposite was being written about Isaac Hayes during that time...copy/paste from his wiki page: Black men could finally stand up and be men because here's Black Moses; he's the epitome of black masculinity. Chains that once represented bondage and slavery now can be a sign of power and strength and sexuality and virility.

Ditto Isaac Hayes. But the OP already posted this is nothing but a bait thread anyway. bored

I Googled both.

A caftan is an article of clothing, while tell me what you see is a Beatles song.

How'd I do? eek

The photoshopped photo where they put his head on a man with hairy legs in a dress and heels.
Prince would not dress like that.

.
I've actually enjoyed his expression during the Gold Experience. Not the music so much.

And I actually didn't like the more 'simpler/less outlandished' looks of the 2002-2008 period as much
