Performer. Philanthropist. Fashion Icon.
Almost as memorable as his hit songs were the talented performer's on-stage accessories. From regally embellished jackets to the classically hip fedora hat, Jackson's show-stopping style made him an instant fashion icon for the MTV generation. The most notable of the singer's adornments was his rhinestone-studded white glove, which became Jackson's signature piece.
Time has already shown that Michael Jackson will be missed. His musical performances represented the adolescence of many. However, the spirit of the legendary performer lives on not only in his music, but in the fashion community as well. This past season, Jackson's sartorial influences were seen on the runway, including studded jackets at Balmain & Givenchy, and his signature sequined gloves at Louis Vuitton.
