Michael Jackson

It is nearing two years, since the world lost one of the most prolific artists of all time, Michael Jackson (born August 29, 1958-died June 25, 2009) .  Jackson probably has been awarded with every award/title for his music and entertainment, but did he acheive a FASHION ICONIC status??  I thought it would be fitting to review his fashion history and just give you great pictures to remember him and enjoy how his style changed over his 40 year music career.  Enjoy.
