1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

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

    As for worst, I just read an article on him the other day--Stevie Ray Vaughan. [​IMG] 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.

    Yes, Vlad was a noted dandy. . . . as, I believe, was his father-in-law.

    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.

    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.
