inspiration: Boy George

I thought I could start doing inspiration posts on my blog every now and then. I want to post pictures of some gorgeous people who have really inspired me somehow.

And, what would be better way to start it than sharing some pictures of Boy George, my number one favourite singer. He's not just a amazing singer and songwriter, he also has gorgeous style, and his make up looks are stunning too. (I wonder why haven't I done Boy George inspired make up look yet!)
He also seem to have a fantastic, interesting personality, at least that's the impression I've got of him when reading his books, watching interviews, etc.

He has affected a lot in my life, since I first heard Culture Club songs, I started to discover who I am really and what do I want in life, and also somehow through Boy George I've heard of most of the other bands I listen to these days too. And I don't know, maybe without Boy George I wouldn't have ever even thought of moving to London someday. The first time when I went to London (in January 2008), it was only because I wanted to go to Boy George's concert there, and while I was in London then, I fell in love with the city.

But yeah. Boy George is just absolutely gorgeous and very inspiring. ♥


  1. I agree with you he is such original and has a great style ;)
    Thx for sharing this with us, it's giving us the opportunity to know more about you :)

  12. oh yeah, you'd better do that makeup how-to!

    you know, i was thinking... he still looks outrageous even today, imagine all the impact he must have originally encountered back in the day. what a character!

  13. Gosh his makeup's so bold! I absolutely love the one with the headdress? and electric blue eyeliner on the lower lash line. He looks so pretty! :D I know he's male and all, but that's the word that came to mind lol :D Definitely inspirational, I'd so love to see your inspiraed makeup look if you do one! ((:

    @Couture Carrie: Couldn't find mroe fab inspiration :D

    @carlyjcais: Yeah, sadly.. But there's some people (like me) who still really see him as an inspiration, so he's not totally forgotten :D Thanks!

    @johanna: I know! I was going through his pictures and choosing the ones I want to use in this post.. I was sooo surprised, I was wondering, why the hell haven't I done Boy George make up yet! As I said, he's my number one inspiration etc.. Why haven't I tried his make up looks even though he has had so many different gorgeous look! The only Boy George related make up looks I've done are Worried About The Boy make up and Taboo make up but they're not exactly Boy George make up looks. I really need to do one though!!

    @minnja: He was great, and he still is :)

    @jemina: Indeed!

    @augustlover: He really is amazing man :)

    @Anastacia: Me too!

    @augustalolita: The best possible inspiration :D At least for me.. He really has an amazing style, I love his make up looks and hair styles!

    @Martwa Marta: Indeed!

    @Elaine Valerie: Thanks! :) I'm glad you like it!

    @behindblueeyes: Indeed :)

    @Charleston: Yeah! I think they all are :D

    @Siz: You're right.. The perfect way to start these posts :) He really is fantastic.. :)

    @Daiane: I definitely will! I just looked at these pictures again.. there's so many make up looks I want to do! I just can't understand why I haven't done any before. :'D I'll do some, soon!
    Yeah, you're right.. It surely hasn't been easy to be just a outrageous character.. But he's fantastic, and so strong!

    @Gets: Yeah, I adore that make up look! The blue eyeliner looks so gorgeous. I think I want to recreate that look too! :D Males can be pretty too, I think :)

    @Panda: He's really gorgeous and has amazing style :) And no problem, I'm not always so fast replier either :) I'll check it out!

    @ryan: Awesome! I'm so happy to hear that. I so rarely meet any people in real life that love him.. So it's great to meet people online who have something like that in common with me! I was already nearly 15 when I started listening to Boy George's music, that's when I heard about him for the first time..

    Michaela: Indeed!! :)

    @TheMadTwins: Yeah! :)
