When it comes to music it's all about creativity and originality. Those same principles when applied to clothing can lead to some dubious results.

On stage Coldplay jokingly apologized to Paul McCartney for stealing the Beatles' Sgt Pepper uniforms. The apology could be equally applicable to Hasbro's© lot of My Little Ponies and the rest of their magical cartoon friends.

What killed Coldplay's Care Bear paramilitary ensemble was not just the whimsical color scheme, but the sloppy jacket design. Too many standout elements in an outfit will fight for attention and inadvertently create a McFlurry® of fashion faux pas. In contrast, Raheem DeVaughn rocked sporting his untraditional color jacket because the fit was flawless, allowing your eye to focus a singular dominant aspect, the rich color.
