It would have been Aaliyah‘s 40th birthday today.
In remembrance of the late singer who passed away in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 aged 22 but still continues to be a huge influence to stars and fashionistas till date. To mark what would have been her 40th birthday, we’re looking back at 8 photos of her that remains evergreen.
She was the ultimate babygirl!
We’ve seen Rihanna try to recreate this look a few times.
She has some of the best beauty shots of all time.
Then this photo of her with Drake. Oh sorry, that’s her brother, Rashad.
The thigh-high slit that is a regular feature on red carpets today? She did it first.
Cute as a button!
This photo of Destiny’s Child having a groupie moment is gold!
Sigh! We can only aspire to this gorgeousness!
