    Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons jacket from the 1st MTV Awards show. Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons jacket from the 1st MTV Awards show. (1984) This shimmering jacket was worn by the legendary Dale Bozzio, lead singer of the 80's band Missing Persons, at the very first MTV Music Awards. The jacket is constructed of pink sequined fabric and lined with matching pink satin. It features ¾ rolled sleeves. Bozzio wore this jacket as the featured piece in a matching pink ensemble at the 1st annual MTV Music Awards in the historic Radio City Music Hall in NYC in 1984. Bozzio presented the award for "Most Experimental Music Video" to Herbie Hancock for his video of the song "Rockit", which swept the awards that year. Bozzio was also featured wearing this jacket in several publicity photographs taken at the event. Bozzio, who often altered garments to keep her style constantly fresh, converted the long jacket into a short tailcoat for subsequent use. Dale Bozzio's signature look and style continues to fascinate and influence contemporary entertainers like trendsetters Gwen Stefani, and Lady Gaga. The jacket remains in very good condition and is accompanied by a signed COA from Debra Messana who was Bozzio's personal assistant for several years beginning in 2002.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
