Black History Month on The Fashion Bomb: How Our Favorite Artists Have Influenced Fashion
By Faith

Black History Month is here!
In the past, we’ve featured vintage snapshots, the greatest couturiers, black models, and so much more (see the full category here).

This year, we are showing how some of the world’s most loved artists have influenced fashion:

Black History Month On The Fashion Bomb-0201-How Our Favorite Artists Have Influenced Fashion
From Michael Jackson’s influence on brands like Balmain and Giuseppe Zanotti to Diddy’s sartorial influence from the early ’90s to the present, it is going to be so much fun walking down style and music’s memory lanes and discovering where they’ve converged.

We hope that you’re as excited as we are and that you’ll comment away and relive it all with us! Perhaps we’ll add in some music videos for good measure.
Monday is our start date so get ready!

If you have any suggestions as to who we should include, leave it in the comments.

  1. Ohhh Aaliyah is a good one! she changed the game wonderfully with the tom boy sexy… Yep I am excited.

  2. Savage says:

    Vanity!!! And Grace Jones!

  3. TVF says:

    Yesss to that Aaliyah picture. She was and is so dope. Michael and Prince looking prettier than most women lol. Thanks for this post. #blackhistorymonth

  4. Trish says:

    Pharrell Williams (N.E.RD) with his Skateboard cool dress sense.

  5. Shanta says:

    Definitely TLC & Escape in the early 90′s; since they were all girl groups they made dressing like a guy (baggy jeans and tees) fem and cool

  6. Kahalia says:

    I have to say Kanye for black men’s fashion. I never thought Iwould see a brother in tight pants after growing up in the 90′s! also Andre 3000 was wearing the Bowtie, Ivy League fitted pants look first.

  7. justme says:

    Great feature

  8. Brandon says:

    I am excited for these posts :)

  9. T Double U says:

    Please feature Salt n Pepa! The hair, the clothes, the music…they were definitely trendsetters.

  10. Gemini says:

    Patra aka Queen of the Pack + Brandy for the long box braids

  11. Anonymous says:

    Mary J. from the 90′s
    Lisa Bonet (I think I’m spelling it right)
    Jasmine Guy (it’s a different world)

  12. B says:

    For me it’s fashion and music equals Michael. The man did not care what was in style. He made into a fashion staple. Come on the blazer, cropped pants, and the signature white glove….classic!

    Also, people sleep on Janet, the one earring, cropped shirts, “Poetic Justice” braids….love the creativity the Jacksons brought back in the table.

    I also would say TLC, Spice Girls (bringing the 70s back), Rihanna, Solange…..love em all

  13. London says:

    Loved the style that Total (Bad Boy) evoked in the 90s. Three different looks meshed into one which translated well for them as group and what the label Bad Boy represented at the time. Pam – One of the homegirls/slight masculine look. Keisha – Sassy & Sexy. Kima – Girly/ultra feminine

  14. nike says:

    Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson, Sade ♥, TLC, EnVogue!!

  15. Genie says:

    Prince, I was a big fan of his “new romantic” look. I also like Vanity, but let us not for LaBelle . . . they were so over the top, just wonderful!

    And the great ladies of the past Lena Horne, Ms. Kitt and Josephine Baker wonderful until the day she died.

  16. CC says:

    It would be absolutely sinful to leave out Diana Ross and Donna Summers…no elaboration needed.

  17. Amber says:

    Sade – Red lipstick
    Aaliyah – Tomboy style
    A Different World show – Bohemian style
    Will Smith in The Fresh Prince – Streetwear/Sneaker head style
    Naomi Campbell – The Diva look
    Kanye West – Luxury meets Streetwear

    Happy Black History month!

  18. binks says:

    There are a lot of great selections thrown out. I would add Pam Grier, Hilary Banks (Karyn Parsons), Diddy (hate him or love him the guy fashion is usually always on point), if you want a shocker lil kim (don’t shot me…lol but she was kind of like the lady gaga of the 90s in terms of shock fashion), and I would add some new comers who are slaying the game right now (black history doesn’t always have to celebrate our fallen heros).

  20. Juju says:

    Brandy for the braids.
    Mariah for mini dresses.
    MC hammer hammer/harem pants.

  21. Coco says:

    Faith Evans loved her style. Toni Braxton had some moments too. Unbreak my Heart influenced many girls prom season.

  22. Mo_Sheri10 says:

    Definitely Diddy & Aaliyah. Mary J. Blige and Salt & Pepa should also be included. This is a great post!

  23. jeda says:

    Sade! TLC!

  24. "You Left My Comments for Dead" says:

    Donyale Luna
    Diana Ross
    Michelle Obama
    Lenny Kravitz
    The Black Panthers
    Angela Davis
    Andre 3000
    Erykah Badu
    Beverly Johnson
    Flo Jo
    Not all above are music artists, but these stick out to me.
