How about Liberace? And Glenn Gould with his gloves.

John Philip Sousa also wore gloves when he conducted. Glenn Gould did not wear gloves when he played the piano.  But he certainly bundled up even when it was a hot summer day.

I believe Gould wore his fingerless mitten type things when he played. With his special chair.

Duke Ellington. The preeminent American composer and about maybe the second most important person in the history of jazz behind Louis Armstrong.

As for worst, I just read an article on him the other day--Stevie Ray Vaughan. Kimonos, cowboy hats, pre-Zubaz pants, boots, bling, tchotchke Native American-inspired kitsch, now-and-again scraggly facial hair usually not even worthy of being called a beard. But could he ever play.

Toscanini was always dressed "to the nines". As was Leopold Stokowski--even when he wasn't shaking Mickey Mouse's hand or dating Greta Garbo. I stand corrected about Glenn Gould's gloves. (A "must read" book about Gould is "Wondrous Strange" by Kevin Bazzana. Oxford University Press)

The Beatles during the Abbey Road era. Young Elvis (love those Western style sportsjackets). Jimi Hendrix.

I suggest Tindersticks (note the cover of their second album - they're at the tailor's.), 16 Horsepower, and Jarvis Cocker of Pulp.

CTGuy brings up an interesting point with his avatar: Paris Hilton is a style icon. Now that she's a "musician," I have to say she's the most important musician style icon ever.
