30 times Prince dressed like the coolest man in music

Prince’s impact and influence extended far beyond the realms of music.

Over the course of four decades, he consistently and defiantly challenged the status quo, ripping up the rule books of sexuality, of race and of style.

From frilly lace to crop tops, thick eye liner to skimpy bikini bottoms, Prince’s gender-blurring outfits shocked and inspired in equal measure, and paved the way for generations of musicians to follow in his high-heeled footsteps.

As the images below show, in more than 35 years in the limelight, Prince’s unique, unparalleled and unprecedented sense of style never dated and never stagnated. These are just a few of his most iconic outfits.
