Michael Jackson will probably go down in history as the greatest entertainer of all time but aside from being a musical genius & icon, he will be remember for his style as well.
These images come from an editorial shot for Italian Vanity Fair last year on the groundbreaking pop styles of the late Michael Jackson. MJ had a knack for taking contemporary fashion & adding his personal flare to it. Most notable in his repertoire of style is definitely the “suit of lights” sequined saturated glove. It’s very presence embodies a lifetime of memories for his fans. Like the glove, his “Captain Crunch” performance uniforms held a unique quality all their own. Military garments have always been incorporated into contemporary fashion, but Michael Jackson wore them in a way similar to no one else. The glove, combined with an array of suits are legends in their own rights.
Whether in the use of texture or designer cuts, color was always integral to The King of Pop’s style in a bold way. Music videos like Smooth Criminal, Beat It, & Bad are just a few examples where this was evident. So like everything else great about this entertainer/humanitarian, his sense of style will never be forgotten. R.I.P. – August 29 1958 – June 25 2009
