This iconic costume was worn by rock idle Adam Ant in his 1981 video for the hit single, Prince Charming. Audiences also got to see him perform in this unique outfit during his tour.  There are two shirts, two pairs of breeches, two wigs and two scarfs, not identical but in similar styles, all worn in different combinations throughout the tour.
