Note by Ahhh Girl 27 September 2014: posts 1-16 were a thread titled "The Best Times For Their Faces". The themes were similar so those posts were brought into this conversation.

Well sorry if this topic had already been done, but I looked really hard and I didn't see one!

So this is where you say when each Beatle looked the best. In my opinion, it goes like this:

a-hard-days-night-john-21970, when his hair was really short!

a-hard-days-night-paul-7tie between 1965 and 1985

a-hard-days-night-george-41964

a-hard-days-night-ringo-71964

A picture is worth a thousand words...

It'll be back, but the cover's getting tattered. It'll be back in a couple of weeks!!

For Paul though, I couldn't decide between the time of Help!, or the Waterfalls music video!

Obviously the Beatles changed their "look" and image a lot over the years. Including styles sported after the breakup, which "look" do you think suited which Beatles, and which ones do you dislike?

I personally love John's 1964 style, with the cap he was wearing when they got off the plane in America- he looked so cheeky and rebellious! Also like his scruffy, stubbly look from footage of the sessions for Imagine. Loathe the whole Jesus thing he had going on in 1969 though.

As for Paul, I think he looked at his best in 1968, clean-shaven (facial hair always looks bad on him IMO) and the messy hairstyle he had at the time just really suited him. Also the clothes he was wearing at the time were pretty cool, the plum-coloured blazer from the Hey Jude video in particular.

George looked pretty cool in the Sgt Peppers' era, with his moustache, long hair and brightly coloured clothing, that combined with his naturally stern, somewhat mysterious expression and made him look like some sort of psychedelic monk :)

Ringo always looked good throughout the Beatles' years if you ask me, but particularly adorable in the Get Back sessions at Twickenham- with his droopy moustache, long hair, big sweater and doleful expression I just want to give him a hug when everybody else is arguing!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I'm such a fangirl that I love all their looks. But I can say I hate John's sideburns. I just hate t hem.

First an intriguing question that's always puzzled me: How come when Paul grew a full beard, none of the other Beatles did? And vice versa?

Anyways...best:

George: "A Hard Day's Night" era - think of Joe's avatar!

John: Early "Pepper" era, with fairly short hair, sideburns.

Paul: "Let It Be" era, with full beard

Ringo: White Album era, with longish hair and moustache

 

worst: Call this blasphemy if you want, but I really never could appreciate those iconic 1963-64 collarless suits. I can't help it, the idea of matching outfits just always seemed corny and old-fashioned to me, and not in a cool old-fashioned way.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

I always say the Rubber Soul period, they all looked so confident, assured and uber smart. However will put a shout out for Paul in early '69, there is a film clip of him walking into Apple Studios and he looks awesome. Not a fan of Johns '68 appearance - and the naked album cover as well!! Way too much of John on show.
