Taron Egerton's Elton John costumes from Rocketman on display...

Congratulations to Elton John and Bernie Taupin for their Best Original Song Oscar win for "I'm Gonna Love Me Again" from the iconic pop star's movie musical biopic, Rocketman. The 2019 feature film directed by Dexter Fletcher saw the rise of a young and shy piano prodigy, Reginald Dwight, to fame and his breakthrough years in the 1970s as Elton John. Played by Taron Egerton, the movie chronicled the music legend's highs, loves and lows with the help of a wonderful array of flamboyant costumes designed by Julian Day.
