As Moammar Khadafy (alternately spelled Gadhafi or Gaddafi) exits the world stage, fashionistas everywhere are no doubt mourning his loss. Known for his cutting edge use of color, bling, and especially hats as fashion accessories, Khadafy was always outfitted to make a statement (although, the exact meaning of that statement was not always readily apparent).
Mo, as his friends call him, likes to don his military dress uniform for special occasions.
And, he is always surrounded by his crack staff of colorful, impeccably dressed bodyguards. Hugh Hefner has nothing on Mo.
During state visits, Mo frequently wears his royal garb, using gold accents and green earth tones to give him a peaceful, yet noble appearance.
For everyday governing, Moammar favors attire in the red, blue, purple family of colors – often combining colors to make bold fashion statements.
At home, Mo often wears basic black.
But, don’t confuse him with Bob Dylan, for whom he is frequently mistaken.
Yet, Mo will be best remembered for his signature use of tans and browns that so beautifully complemented his swarthy, rugged skin tone and texture.
So, as we bid a fond farewell to Mo, we also remember that he is a man for all fashion seasons.
