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 —
