Since the beginning we have looked to Mary J. Blige for the latest fashion. She has simultaneously been The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and fashion icon. A real fashion icon, you know, the kind that possesses style and grace. The kind that doesn't have to try to hard. The kind that doesn't have to be so revealing to be relevant. We must admit, we love what Blige's style has evolved into since the 90's. Some artists from the 90's have a hard time transitioning into 21st century fashion but not Blige. She looks amazing.
Angelica Gleason, Mary's stylist on her Walmart Soundcheck performance says of Mary's style: "She's always glamorous and gorgeous so jewelry is always a great extra thing...big earrings and lots of gems. She loves lots of jewelry and lots of glitter is always fun. She always looks chic, sleek and sexy but casual so she's really good at putting all of those elements together. She loves a great leather jacket because they are very rock star buy also under-toned. Some of her favorite designers are Gucci, YSL, Louboutin, Ferragamo...She'll never put too much out there; she's very grounded and super spiritual and it shows in the way she dresses. She's always being true to herself instead of the trends.
Blige recently lent her powerful vocals to the Think Like a Man Too soundtrack which is out on June 17. The film is due out on June 20. The soundtrack also features Pharrell Williams and The Dream. We can't wait to hear it! In the meantime marvel at 13 recent pictures of Blige looking pretty epic in her outfits.
