The BAD Era


“Bad” how-to

So this time it’s about the recreation of probably our favorite Michael look – the one he sported in the Scorcese directed music video “Bad”.

That’s a really badass look, but it is also a very over-the-top one. The outfit may seem a bit overaccessorized, but that’s exactly what this look is about – buckles and straps, heaps of black and tight fit – but just the right amount to show who’s bad ;)
