Fashion Icon – Michael Jackson

You may or may not know that yesterday, August 29th, Michael Jackson would have been 54 years old. It’s already been 3 years since his passing, but his legacy is one,  in my opinion, that will never be forgotten. Michael was an icon not just in the music world but in other areas as well, such as fashion. When you picture Michael, there are certain things that are synonymous with him and his image. He had a signature style and when you see similar things today in fashion, you instantly think of him. Which is why, for generations to come, he’ll be remembered for more than just his music. What things am I talking about?

Red Jacket With Zips

“Got to go thriller Mike Jackson on these n*ggas all I need is a f**king red jackets with some zippers,” this is a line from Drake’s single Over. Possibly due to the success of his thriller video, the red jacket that he wore in it took on its own persona. Whatever it was though, he owned this look.

Military Jackets

Like a true icon, most of what you do will be copied and recreated by others and this is certainly the case with the military styled jackets that he wore so often. Even his peers (other celebrities) copy his style.

The White Socks

Another signature look that he wore was the white socks. Not a look that everyone could pull off and one that most of us should leave alone but he did it so well.

One  Glove

Again this is a look that only a celebrity could pull off. I once heard a story of a relative of mine trying do this look, I’m not sure how that went down. Only Michael could do this and look so stylish and of course Beyonce.

Whether it be the moon walk, his dance moves or his hair, (I personally liked the curly look on him) everyone will remember him for something different. However, fashion icon is certainly a title  he deserves.

Fashion Icon – Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker, who turned 47 today (March 25), happens to be one of my favorite style icons. I fell in love with SJP mainly because of her character Carrie Bradshaw, in “Sex and the City.” Carrie has a shopping addiction that  I’m sure most women can identify with and she is a shoe fanatic who spends hundreds of dollars on her foot wear. She always look fabulous and her outfits never cease to amaze me. I wish so much that I could raid Carrie’s closet, don’t you?

 

A while back she teamed up with Steve & Barry’s to sell her “Bitten” line, “women should be able to wear great clothes and not lie in bed at night feeling guilty about how much money they’ve spent,” said SJP. I guess she understands that not everyone would be able to afford the high end designer brands that she can. In reality SJP is like Carrie Bradshaw times ten, she has a very unique sense of fashion that can be daring at times but  she always makes a memorable statement. Here are some of my favorite SJP looks.

Totally glamorous isn’t she!?
