Forever Dusty















"I find it an effort to keep up appearances."

"My sexuality has never been a problem to me but I think it has been for other people. I have tried sex with both men and women. I found I liked it."

"Sometimes you have to let people down in order to get on, particularly in showbusiness."

"I just decided I wanted to become someone else... So I became someone else."

"It's marvellous to be popular, but foolish to think it will last."


Dusty Springfield (16 April 1939 – 2 March 1999)

  2. A voice for the ages, surely, but never in the business has there been a star who so clearly had, from start to finish, no input at all into her styling - it's as if they just let the maddest person working at the moment at her.

    The result is that she's a veritable time-capsule of extreme looks, but she also never quite looks comfortable.

    1. To me, she always looked like a man (or a bull-dyke) in drag! She wore some horrible clothes in her time - but nobody cared, when she had such an incredible talent... Jx

    1. By the 1980s, it was OK for Dusty to dress "dykey". I suppose... Jx
