The most stylish performances on MTV Unplugged

The latest video in the Swatch MTV Playground features Fred Butler on music. Fashion designer Fred explains that although she has no musical talent herself,  she maintains a healthy relationship with the industry through her involvement and collaboration with artists – creating outfits, accessories and props means she can contribute to music in her own way.

You can see what Fred has to say in the video above and if you want to hear more about her projects there’s a series of fantastic interviews with her and Beth Ditto here, where the two women discuss Grace Jones, origami and a blissful ignorance of celebrities.

In the spirit of Fred’s creative collaborations, and in keeping with MTV’s musical heritage , here are some of my favourite performances from stylish people on Unplugged:

aerosmith unplugged
Beautiful Steven Tyler wears flamboyant florals so well. Not many men would get a pass for so much accessorising but it’s Steven Tyler man!

hole unplugged

Inspiring 14-year-olds across the world since 1995, Courtney Love’s black lacy look feels as relevant now as it did 16 years ago.

bjork unplugged

The biggest weapon in Bjork’s creative arsenal is her insane voice so you can forgive her for appearing in a nice dress and not much else, except a serious face of makeup.
