Michael shops for a makeover

May 15, 1991|By N.Y. Times News Service

TC Michael Jackson, at Madonna's suggestion, really wants a makeover, and has enlisted several leading fashion photographers to help him, including Steven Meisel, Bruce Weber and Herb Ritts.

The photographers were recently approached to come up with a new vision of the performer, who has been stuck in a modified Sgt. Pepper look for years.

"He did call me and request a photo session," Meisel said, but no date was set up. "I would have to come up with a whole new look for him," he added, "but I'm not about to tell anyone what it is over the phone."

Meanwhile, several leading fashion designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, have been asked by Jackson to submit sketches or clothes for his new look.
