Elton John’s Statement Glasses

Elton John Glasses Rocketman

The Elton John biopic Rocketman starring Taron Egerton and Scottish star Richard Madden hits cinema screens this week so we’ve taken a look back at his eyewear evolution over the years.

Your Song hit the airwaves in 1970, propelling Elton to global stardom. Not only were his hits a talking point, but his fashion choices too. Known for flamboyant stage looks, he quickly established himself as a fashion icon with statement glasses being his signature piece. From heart shaped glasses to round embellished frames, Sir Elton has the best collection of eyewear and we’ve taken a look at some of his finest pairs.
