Music’s 25 Fashion Icons


If fashion is art (and we may be biased, but we think it is), then the music industry is at least three art forms at once: song, dance, and—as Lady Gaga would say—ra, ra, fashion, baby. After all, some of the most memorable musicians are the ones whose songs not only got into our heads, but whose clothes we wanted in our closets. Here, ELLE recounts the 25 music stars who carved their spot into fashion history.


Beyoncé often steps onto the red carpet in dresses by Cavalli, Armani, or her other favorite designer, her mother, Tina Knowles. But we’ve got to hand it to the girl: She’s still full of surprises. In 2008, she made waves at the MTV Europe Awards when she ditched her usual finery for an edgy, avant-garde dress by Gareth Pugh.


As bold as she is in her brash and wildly danceable hip-hop, M.I.A.’s wardrobe explosion of neon, metallic, and bright African prints have turned into hipster staples. And last year her penchant for animal prints took a more literal turn with this sequined Jean Charles de Castelbajac catsuit.
