Libya's peacock: Libyan leader Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi may be the ultimate dictator-showman, and his personal style reflects his outsize behavior on the world stage. Qaddafi is most often seen sporting long, flowing, brown robes that represent his hometown of Sirte, a Bedouin village in the middle of the Libyan Desert. But he also has a strong sense of occasion. For African summits, the "King of Kings" of Africa dons dashikis or more elaborate costumes, as seen above. Other times, he goes for the full-on military dictator look, complete with epaulets and beret. And who could forget the layered milk-chocolate-colored satin outfit (complete with black beret and a pin in the silhouette of Africa) that he wore at last year's U.N. General Assembly session? It made diplomats almost forget that he talked for over 90 minutes, rambling that the Security Council should be called the "terror council," demanding an investigation into the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy, and offering to move the United Nations to Libya (to reduce jet lag for fellow dignitaries).
