Aaliyah’s legend lives on via her music, personal style and the people and fans she touched. The late singer continues to inspire budding artists with her hit records, and celebrities often allude to her iconic approach to fashion via their own modern takes.
Aaliyah was known for mixing and matching baggy and form-fitting clothes, creating a sexy tomboy vibe that celebrities like Rihanna and Ciara still rock today.

Her role in Queen of the Damned is also style inspiration for many, including FKA twigs and Karrueche.
