Michael Jackson, Fashion Icon

I grew up with Michael Jackson. Not literally, but figuratively. I was there the first time around when the sequin glove was cool and everyone wanted a band jacket that looked like his. Fast forward to 2009 and Michael is dead, literally but not figuratively. The tributes have dominated the news since he passed away. But Michael lives on, because he is a music icon and a fashion icon. The anticipation of his upcoming tour dovetailed into the fashion inspirations we've been seeing on the runways as designers look to the 1980's for inspiration. The ripped jeans and the military jackets are a favorite in fashion magazines and on celebrities. Look for the '80's influence and Michael's style to take up even more space in fashion and pop culture as people continue to pay tribute to the King of Pop.
