Prince wasn’t just a musical icon, but also a fashion one. Though known for purple — a color he all-but-trademarked with “Purple Rain ” — he also wore outfits ranging from a half-Batman-half-Joker suit for “Batdance,” and once wore assless chaps for the MTV Video Music Awards.
Whether Prince wore low-cut blouses, lace, or crazy patterns, his outfits were unmistakable. And he’s one of the rare people who could mix and match all colors, patterns and styles and actually get away with it.
Every once in a while, Prince would show up in “normal” attire — just a shirt and a blazer. But even then, he added elements of his personal fashion taste. At the 10th Anniversary Essence Music Festival at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, he bore some chest hair.
At the 2010 BET Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Prince dons an Asian-inspired flared turtle neck with tight white pants — a combination that fans came to know well.
