Bon Jovi - Richie Sambora's Stylish Mother

Richie Sambora's mother was the inspiration behind Bon Jovi's early fashion choices as the group used to borrow items from her wardrobe to customise their outfits.
Bon Jovi used to wear Richie Sambora's mother's clothes.

The guitarist - who has launched his own clothing line, White Trash Beautiful, with designer and musician Nikki Lund - and his bandmates used to borrow items of clothing from his mum's wardrobe when they didn't have much money to give their outfits a unique twist.

Speaking ahead of the UK launch of the range at the Indig02 at London's O2 Arena tonight (23.06.10), Nikki told BANG Showbiz: "When the group didn't have the money to buy designer clothes they were still fashion trendsetters with their Spandex and stuff.

"Richie told me how they would take items from his mum's closet, like a scarf or something, and then tie it around their legs and it was really cool."

Although Richie sometimes cringes at what the 'Livin' On A Prayer' hitmakers wore in the 80s, he admits it worked for them at the time.

He said: "I look back at some of those pictures and go, 'What was I thinking?!' but it did work for us."

As well as his mother, Richie also revealed how ex-girlfriend Cher has had an influence on his style choices.

He said: "When I was younger I lived with Cher for a while and she turned me on to fashion - she was wild with her choices. But the funny thing now is she has been picking stuff out from White Trash Beautiful so it's come full circle!"

I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
