One thing is for sure: Army Of Lovers were being noticed. There was no way you could overlook them. "We make popmusic and that must also be visual appealing". Their performances were a small theaterplay with all kind of attributes. If they went outside they were surrounded by the sound of several photocameras. And Army Of Lovers loved it. They wanted to be watched, they wanted to give people stuff to think about. "It's fun to give people the impression that you're stupid". The most important thing on their visual look was of course their stunning outfits. Those outfits were always, except for 'Sons of Lucy' and 'King Midas' designed by Camilla Thulin, a high respected designer. The clothes were very complex, and was often based on the 17th century. With every song the outfit changed completely but was always a bit provocative. Think about La Camilla's undie in 'Crucified' with a nice rose pinned on it, or Jean-Pierre's peniscase in 'Give My Life'. I often ask myself: "What happened now with those outfits?".

Army Of Lovers was also the queen of make-up. And no-one else than Jean-Pierre was responsible for that. As The Royal Society Of Beauty he took care off the skins and hairdresses from the other members. And if you know Army Of Lovers like I do, you've noticed that every member had his or her special characteristic e.g. Alexander had a little mustache, La Camilla had always worn a crown (except for 'Obsession' and 'King Midas', there it was respectively a nursecap and a dominating hat) and MichaŽla used Army Of Lovers to show her own jewelry, made in De La Cour Entertainment, off. Army Of Lovers were no liveband. If you wanted to hear them sing, you better played a single of them. It was their idea to entertain everyone, including theirselves. Like I've said earlier, they made from a stage a small theater, and Army Of Lovers acted and in 1991 they even thought about letting real actors play in their place in Germany. Luckily this got canceled because people wanted to see the real Army Of Lovers. Each member in the Army Of Lovers had his or her own role and that never changed as drastically as their outfits.
