One in a million — all the best of Aaliyah’s 90s style

Any fan of Aaliyah's can recount to you the exact time and place they heard about the singer's untimely death in 2001. When most artists die, however much of a shock it may be at the time, fans at least have their films, lyrics or books to cling to. But in this case, the singers whole music catalogue was kept out of public reach due to an ongoing dispute between her record label and estate. A heartbreaking reality for all who cherished her music.

Almost 20 years on, the legal battle continues, but finally her music has been made accessible to the public. At last we can listen to Age Ain't Nothing But A Number and One In A Million on Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. To celebrate, we're gazing back at the legacy she left behind, and this time we're not talking about her songs. Not only did Aaliyah bless us with the soulful soundscapes, that only, she, the princess of R&B could, she also ruled our hearts with her sartorial choices. Oscillating between over-sized tracksuits, bandanas and Tommy Hilfiger denim, she could also slip into slinky lace cocktail dresses without batting an eyelid. Here's to Aaliyah! And for all her best looks, read on.
