Michael Jackson is an ALL-TIME 100 FASHION ICON

From models and muses to designers and photographers, the world of style has no shortage of superstars. We picked the 100 most influential fashion icons since 1923, the beginning of TIME … magazine

The glittering glove. The Thriller-era leather jacket. Those spit-shined penny loafers that gave him the otherworldly ability to glide across the stage.

Yes, it’s no coincidence that we associate the different chapters of the King of Pop’s career with the clothes he wore. But what’s perhaps most impressive of all when it comes to Jackson’s aesthetic is that it never once felt contrived. His wardrobe — though flamboyant — was never some grandiose political statement or performance-art afterthought. Like his music, his style reflected the inverse of an introverted artist wrought with complexity: flashy, singularly talented and larger than life.

It was a wardrobe, for lack of better words, fit for a king.

Michael Jackson won a record eight Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for his “Thriller” album.

The original album, holds the Guinness World Records title for best-selling album of all time. It has been certified 29x Multi-platinum by the RIAA, featured seven top 10 hits, spent 37 weeks at the top of the charts and sold  more than 104 million copies worldwide and counting…

Besides all that, Thriller had significant cultural influence. Michael broke unspoken racial barriers between pop, rock and dance music. He made music almost everyone could love.

It’s not often that the whole world listens to the same music, and there’s great power in that.  You can’t have it unless just about every constituency is represented.  That feat is probably one Michael’s greatest triumphs.
