Simon Le Bon Mo’

Published on February 13th, 2013

Former pop superstar and poster-boy for ageing teen-idols Simon Le Bon has taken the bold step of decorating his upper lip with a superb smasher.

The erstwhile Duran Duran singer grew his lip weasel for Movember but then, with the approbation of his good lady wife, decided to keep it, realising that moustaches are for life, not just for November.

Michael “Atters” Attree, moustachioed editor-at-large for The Chap, commented: “My oh my, how this cheesy 80s upper-lip Stilton has matured! Having recently injured his vocal chords, this Wild Boy has come back down to Planet Earth with a banging lip smasher.”

Simon Le Bon’s previous hairy moments include capsizing his yacht, only to be rescued by the Royal Navy – who weren’t sporting facial hair but more vital dinghies. No doubt this is the ingenuous reasoning behind Mr. Le Bon’s stylish lip-flippers. However, with his right lip-fin being a tad more dominant than his left, Mr. le Bon may have difficulty gaining ingress to the hallowed Handlebar Club, should the club be honoured with his application.

    There is a definite “chocks away!” appearance to this chap now. Those of us of a particular vintage recall Ultravox’s Midge Ure sporting hirsute appendages in some fabulous videos, such as for “The Voice”. The kit worn was pure Geovictwardian, too. Take a gander at YouTube to be inspired by early eighties pop and rock glamour.

    “erstwhile Duran Duran singer”?? excuse me?? he is currently recording an album in Battersea with other (not former) members of Duran Duran….

    I agree with Albion, classic RAF look going on there. Would love to see him with the goggles and bomber jacket whilst supporting a pipe! Not sure they would like the bright pink though!

    I like it. I find it intriguing. He looks like a private investigator from years gone by. All he is missing is a cap, cape and magnifying glass. Smashing.

    More RFC than RAF, I think.

    (The Royal Flying Corps was the name of Britain’s aeroplane division until the end of World War I. A Victorian-era mustache like this one would have been possible in the RFC… highly improbably in the more-modern RAF, however.)
