Prince, a legendary creative who passed away on Thursday, will be remembered just as much for his style and fashion choices as well as his imense contribution to music.
Much like David Bowie, Prince was never afraid to be a man and embrace his ‘feminine side’ with his androgynous looks that continue to inspire so many pop stars we’ve seen today like Lady Gaga and Miguel.
With 3-4 inch heels and ruffle peasant blouses, he challenged and stretched the boundaries of gender and masculinity with his red carpet looks and on stage costumes.
The fashion industry also mourns his death most especially one of his close friends Donatella Versace.
In this post today we’ll be showing you a few highlights from the music icon’s fashionable life. From his hair to makeup, clothes and accessories, here are a few memorable stylish moments from the iconic reign of the Purple Prince.
The Prince was hardly without a winged eyeliner and defined brows for his makeup looks
Exaggerated collars, sleeves & cuffs, fluffy peasant shirts, thigh high socks and crop tops or the matching tunic and flared pant ensembles, me always made a statement with his outfits.
Monochrome, polka dots and text covered sleeves. Notice Minneapolis on his sleeves, that’s where he was from.
His hades, hats, shoes, jewellery and even his guitar made a statement, especially his famous purple guitar in the shape of a sign he once called himself.
