Believe it or not, this photo of Morrissey was taken in 1996 at the MTV Movie Awards, an event where most men were dressed, well, like this. But we're not surprised that the singer was among the most stylish men in the room that night, or any night for that matter. He's always had an innate sense of style, a truth probably best communicated in The Smiths song This Charming Man. "I would go out tonight," he croons, "but I haven't got a stitch to wear."
So it's with that in mind that we not only wish Morrisey a happy 55th birthday, but also celebrate his taste and his music. You can join us by hitting play on the music video below.
