Who is the sharpdressed dude in the leather strides, the bedspread for a shirt and the $2,700 “wine” coloured suit? Seal opens his wardrobe to the world …
“I’ve got a really good idea. We should have my guitar in some of these pictures.” Seal is in a photographer’s studio, about to do a fashion shoot with Smash Hits and he’s being very helpful about it. This guitar idea is a good one, only there’s a problem. He came out without his keys and his guitar is in his flat. “You’ll just have to break in,” he tells his assistant, who promptly catches himself a taxi to Kilburn to go about the business of busting down the front door at Seal’s place. Sadly, the guitar—
“I’ve got to have this,” he declares. Seal’s wallet is twitching. He’s just chanced upon a banana yellow jacket worth £580. It’s love at first sight and, to make things even better, today it’s in the sale at £150. With a discount for being a pop star he gets it for £100! Before you know it, he’s handed over a wad and bought it.
He’d like to buy a lot more. There’s only one thing stopping him from going bargain crazy today—
