3. He knows how to accessorize, both with brooches and people.

Just LOOK at him casually outdressing both Marc Bolan and Ringo Starr, a task I thought impossible until I saw this photo.

And was maybe the only person in history to do so.

7. Elton is literally the only person on Earth capable of making a fedora look cool.

8. And I mean, just try to take in every single thing happening here and try to argue that Elton isn’t a golden god.

Like, literally and figuratively. Look at him SHINE.

11. And don’t even try to be all, “He was only stylish when he was younger!” BECAUSE YA WRONG.

You see, our darling Rocket Man is a KNIGHT these days, so he has to dress a bit more conservatively now, is all.

Oh, Elton. Your mere existence is a gift bestowed onto the whole wide world, and we really couldn’t be more grateful for it.
