She did seem tomboyish. She was dressing very provacatively onstage for some of the concerts back then. I remember she said in interviews that she ended up regretting that.

Jill Jones said when she first saw Sheila E she looked more like Larry Graham. biggrin

I recall you mentioning that before. I wonder what Sheila thought about that lol

Not the nicest of comments eek No doubt that Prince put his stylists to work to transform Sheila's look and image as soon as she arrived in the camp.

Nope. Yes,I'm sure he did. Looking at pre Prince photos of Sheila on stage,I didn't think she looked bad in the least. Prince certainly had her glammed up though.

I agree,Sheila looked great in her pre-Prince days.

Fun fact: Sheila appeared in Lionel Richie's 1983 "Running With The Night" video....wearing a red dress and dancing with Lionel at the wedding party

Yes, some of us were talking about that video on another thread. She's always been naturally pretty, but Prince and his team just "glammed" her up - straight hair, highlights, lots of makeup, and skimpier outfits - the Prince protege standard biggrin

yes Sheila was naturally beautiful . But I'm sorry she still wouldn't have pulled off the sex symbol, 'Glamorous Life', image she later received without Prince's(r.i.p.) much needed make over. She owes that to Prince(r.i.p.) forever.


So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

I think she's beautiful both ways. I think she looks amazing in the latest pic Latin shared.

^^^ Yes, she didn't need all of the extra makeup and crazy outfits. She looks just as good with less glam. The 80's was over the top with all of that though.

True. I think she was made up too heavily at times back then. She looks much prettier with natural makeup.
