Style Icons: Male »Roy Orbinson

Singer Songwriter

If one had to demonstrate what a “voice like velvet” was, they’d only need to play a song by Roy Orbison. Personally, I’d opt for “In Dreams“, which has since it’s crooner beginnings, become a soundtrack forever associated with the best creepy imaginings of David Lynch.

Not only was Orbison’s music legendary and beautiful, one has to give credit to the man’s style. Working with what was given him, admittedly algebra teacher looks with a Frank Sinatra siren song, Orbison made the most of it with a simple pair of dark glasses, an equally dark and well tailored wardrobe, and a stage persona that was at once vulnerable and mysterious in it’s stillness.
