The world mourns the lost of an Icon

The outlandish, quirky genius pushed the cultural and social boundaries for more than three decades, shaking up gender, race and rock ‘n’ roll. His impact on fashion, style and beauty is unparalleled; with gender-bending, idiosyncratic costumes, bold beauty notes and that chameleonic hair, which evolved almost as much as his music did.

As the music world reels in the wake of the heartbreaking news, fans across the world too are paying tribute to the iconic star, with an outpouring of both grief and celebration.

Leaving a legacy that stretches far beyond music, his Purple Reign will live on forever. RIP to the Prince of Pop. June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016.
