#Aaliyah 20th Anniversary.
An illustrated retrospective of her most iconic looks and some of my personal faves. From her debut era, to some of her biggest achievements/red carpet looks, to her final self titled era, (my personal fave) 🖤
It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Aaliyah (the highest most exalted one, the best) was taken from us on the 25th August 2001. I remember exactly where I was & how heartbroken I felt when I heard the news as a young kid, and that feeling still lingers to this day. I promised myself that day, that I would always honour her through my artwork and I’ve kept my promise. She’s inspired me in so many ways…through her music, her fashion, her poise, grace & maturity…her love and drive for her art! She was a true class act that will never be duplicated! I often think about how we were robbed of more iconic moments from her, in the music, film and fashion world, but what she left behind has truly stood the test of time. Not many 22 year olds could say they’ve created such classic works of art.
I truly hope that Aaliyah knows how much she is missed and loved by so many. I hope she can see how her fans have held her down all these years and helped keep her legacy alive through all the trials and tribulations. I send so much love to her Mother Diane, her brother Rashad & also the family and friends of those who lost their lives alongside Baby Girl. #Aaliyah20 #Aaliyah20Years #Aaliyah20thAnniversary #AgeAintNothingButANumber #OneInAMillion #RedAlbum #BabyGirl
