Freddie Mercury and Jane Seymour at Fashion Aid, 1985

So a while back, I posted some pics of Freddie Mercury, Jane Seymour, and Boy George at Fashion Aid, November 5, 1985 at The Royal Albert Hall. Organized by Bob Geldof following Live Aid, the guest list was just as impressive in its own way – Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, Kate Bush, Michael Caine, Ringo, George Michael, Zandra Rhodes, and many more.

Which made me wonder, were there more pics of Freddie and Jane in particular out there that I hadn’t found yet? OH YES THERE WERE!

(With lipstick on Fred’s cheek?)

AND THEN I FOUND THE VIDEO!!!

It turns out that the climax of the event was a faux wedding between Fred and Jane! In it, you can see that Freddie is not only shirtless but BAREFOOT as he sweeps Jane off her feet, into his arms!

You’ll see other celebs, as well as the full orchestra and choir who are dressed no less spectactularly.

This really is some pretty wild stuff. Sources for all this here, here, here, and here, all of which I did some additional editing on. Almost none had credits, but I’m thinking that most of if not all photos are by Dave Hogan.

Note that some of the sources I linked to just above had a LOT more photos in case you want to build a Freddie Mercury-Jane Seymour wedding album of your own!

“In February 1977, Blondie was playing the Whisky with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Tom had spray-painted ‘TP’ on the front of the wedding dress that Debbie was wearing. She started ripping it during the second show that night, during the song ‘Rip Her to Shreds’.” ~Photographer Donna Santisi, via 

 “I used to wear wedding dresses a lot and just rip them off during ‘Rip Her To Shreds,’ and I’d have a little black dress underneath. Wedding dresses were one of my favorite things to rip. I’d get them at junk stores.” ~Debbie Harry, Blondie, via
