THE GOLD EXPERIENCE ERA

EMANCIPATION ERA

RAVE ERA

Wait I change my mind... Early 1998 NPS era, the worst.

Easy: the Come era. Hated the finger weave and makeup that made him look white as ghost. Also the clothes were hideous. Second would be his Liza Minnelli phase.

I didn't mind the Rave Era but I can agree with you 96 - 98 I never liked much music and look wise

Worst looks? Pretty much everything from 1993/4 to 2002.Worst eras, for me, all the online album releases cos i didn't have the means to purchase anything cos i was too young; musically - rave is when i threw away my stan card (as the kids say today) till musicology but that album didn't do anything for me. Pretty much all albums from rave to lotus were a let down, for me.
Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.

Worst look. The Kiss video, he looked way better in UTCM the same year.

Worst Era. 1995. He looked sick when he was that pale.

The last few years of his life. Those third eye glasses made him look like an idiot.

For me it is the 1991-1995 look

It was too clean and the bands look was over the top ridiculous - which was probably the point, because it made him stand out more.

the afro by itself is not the issue, just the whole ensemble is just not working

he needed to look simpler for it to work

it works in these below

I actually love this photo. Prince looks great here. His arms look strong and he looks youthful.

I hate saying this but the bigger the afro became the worse Prince looked. The baby 'fro was great, and he looked good at SXSW and the first Live Out Loud leg. By Montreux it kind of overwhelmed his small physique, and combined with the fact that Prince seemed to suddenly age around that time, it just wasn't a good luck. By 2014 it was just ridiculous and it only accentuates how sick he was when you look at the 2016 photos when he's just sickly (he was similarly thin in 2009, but he had short hair and there wasn't much contrast).

I still maintain that him letting the afro just getting bigger was in hindsight a sign of depression or something; generally people who are depressed don't really put effort into their appearance, and for someone like Prince who was constantly reinventing himself visually and musically to suddenly settle for a very phoned in look is telling for me.

Some others looks I didn't care for:

- The Rave look, specifically the album cover: he looks like Coolio and Bjork's love child.

- The Come era: great music but as stated the makeup makes him look sickly.

- The 'Slave' era.

One thing I found interesting was how he goes on The View, debuts this look, and then two days later for the Chicago shows ditched the 'fro and the leather jacket. Also, I HATED those gold sunglasses.

that fro made him look 'plain'

I like it here

Either he started doining his own hair or Kim wasn't good with natural hairs
