At five-foot-two-inches and with no boundaries, Prince was a giant in fashion
Prince pushed boundaries not only in music but also fashion. Everybody loved his look but few tried to duplicate it because, well, who could?
"There was nothing too outrageous," his stylist Michaela Angela Davis told the Today show. When they were working together he didn't talk about how he wanted to look as much as how he wanted to feel, she said.
"He made you feel free," Davis added.
This brings me to one of my favorite, and a lesserknown, Pince songs.
Free... "Be glad that you are free. There's many a man who's not. Be glad for what you've had, baby, for what you've got."
Fortunatley there are numerous artists who teach use to be free in how we dress and think. But there's a thin line between being free and being stupid looking. Perhaps what Prince taught us by the way he carried his 5-foot-2-inch androgynous frame, be it in high heels and lace or shirtless with leather pants, is that if you appear confident as hell you can carry anything off.
