Today marks the 10th anniversary of the tragic death of hip-hop’s first princess, Aaliyah Dana Haughton, singer, model, and trendsetter.
Growing up in the ’90s, one can’t help but remember the tremendous amount of influence Aaliyah wielded. Her tomboy chic, her badass demeanor; Aaliyah has undoubtedly inspired and influenced every female artist in some way.
Her signature side swoop bang, her two-toned ombre hair, her belly chains with a midriff and shades, are just a handful of examples of Aaliyah’s style and influence which was one of a kind, evolving over time and copied day-to-day.
Aaliyah was a diverse and versatile individual who is still greatly missed, not just in the world of music, but fashion and movies as well.
