So, we're pretty ready for 2016 to just be over. With the loss of David Bowie still plaguing our hearts, news broke today that another one of our glamazon style icons has passed away. Prince, the legend, is gone at just 57. Not only was he a pioneer of funk and pop music, but Prince was always pushing boundaries, whether it be with his androgynous sex appeal or his infamous symbol. A true diva 'til the end, he spent one of his last days at a dance party, surrounded by 200 of his fans - just a day after getting released from the hospital for flu treatment. So blast "Purple Rain" and join us in looking back at 40 years of his iconic style.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.
