Michael Jackson: Fashion Icon

June 26, 2009   

From his embellished jackets, to the fedora to his signature glove, there is no doubt that Michael Jackson was a fashion icon that influenced an entire generation. I think we were all in shock when we found out he passed away. Here is a look back at his style.

Here is Jackson wearing a white crystal glove during a performance of Billie Jean back in 1983.
His style beamed impersonators all over the world. Children around the U.S. even wore a single white glove to school. One school in particular (Bound Brooke High School) even banned students from wearing the glove after so many students were wearing it to school.

Who can forget Jackson's embellished military jackets. This look recently hit the catwalk at Balmain's Spring 09' Collection. You might even remember Beyonce wearing this Balmain embellished jacket.

Jackson's infamous red leather jacket, which we first saw in his Beat It video, then again for Thriller was all the craze in the 80's.

Here is Jackson with Madonna with matching outfits at the 1991 Oscars.

Jackson was always a fashion risk taker. Here he is recently wearing a women's jacket from the Givency autumn/winter 2008-09 collection.
