Yesterday dancer, singer, and consummate entertainer Michael Joseph Jackson passed away:
My fellow 80′s babies and music lovers alike are undoubtedly reeling from this information, struggling to process how someone so talented and relatively young could be gone so soon. Instead of focusing on our shock and sorrow, we at The Fashion Bomb would like to celebrate him today, and highlight the contributions he made to music, our culture, and most importantly fashion.
You don’t have to look very far to see how much his innovative style impacted the trendsetters of today.
From Beyoncé in her Single Ladies one glove steeze:
To everyone from Rihanna and Kanye to Teyana Taylor rocking Michael Jackson inspired military jackets:
From young upstarts like Chris Brown taking cues from Thriller in slick red leather:
To a bevy of stars tipping their Fedoras in a particularly MJ way on and off red carpets:
Michael Jackson’s legacy will endure in fashion, music, and beyond.
May he rest in peace.
