Today, marks the 14 years since the young queen and eight others died in a plane crash.Aaliyah Dana Haughton left too soon, yet her fan base remains strong even after all this time.

Recently, the fans united with a goal to receive a limited M.A.C cosmetics Aaliyah edition. #AaliyahForMAC has been trending on networks such as Instagram and Twitter, gaining support even from Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad.

Moreover, aside from Aaliyah’s music and movies, she was also a style icon ahead of her time. Nowadays, the brilliant artist Hayden Williams recreates Aaliyah’s iconic fashion with his own dash of unique leaving many wondering what her style would be like today. Sadly, we can only leave that to our imagination.

However, today, we can celebrate the ahead-of-time Aaliyah’s looks, which make her an idol inspiration for others.

  1. Eyebrow Game on Fleek
    We are all now aware of how important for the whole look our eyebrows are. Since Cara, most girls desire thick brows and perfectly arched. Aaliyah’s perfectly shaped ones are definitely “on point” even today.
  2. Ombre hombre?
    Baby Girl styled her hair with the red ombre look for her MTV Music Awards winning music video Try Again in 2000. She also rocked this look at the Romeo Must Die premiere and during the 2000’s MTV Movie Awards. And now, 15 years later, the ombre hair is one of the hottest hair trend among girls and women all over the world.
  3. We ♡ Denim Yes, the style is very 2000′ like, yet it’s still the denim overall that can be spotted worn today by many fashion bloggers and fashionistas. Aaliyah wore this look for the 2000 TRL, where she was a host. Lili styled the denim with a pair of Timberland boots and that adorable piece of body chain jewelry, also one of the hottest trends for this year.
  4. It’s the Tomboy style, baby girl

    Since the early debut days in 1994; with her Age ain Nothing but a Number album and hit song Back & Forth, Aaliyah’s signature style was the Tomboy Look. With the jazz personality & G Mentality
    came the baggy pants, alongside with oversized tops and outerwear. This was the look for Aaliyah at age 15.

    Well, I think that the image is a part of me. I wear the baggy pants, the hats, the whole nine. And you know, I may add a little for the excitement and the intrigue in the videos, but my family has told me that little air of mystery that surrounds me is for real.

    Later on, following with the album One in a Million, the Queen of Urban Pop at age 17 added portion of sexy into her looks. Oversized tops got replaced by the crop tops and the performer made her street style fashion more feminine.
    This style was the most prominent during her One in a Million era, yet remained the ultimate “Aaliyah Look” till this day. So  Are you that somebody?
    to make this look Hot Like Fire.

  5. B.U.

    I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.

In the chase after trends, one can easily lose a bit of their unique vibe. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be the it girl, but make sure there is always that little something, that is solely and only you.

I want to dedicate this post to Aaliyah. To remind me, who was the very first celebrity to inspire me.

In the end, what I want to say is, thank you Aaliyah. For being a wonderful person who continues to inspire me and many others across the globe even after the long years. I believe, your legacy is what you wanted it to be~ We remember you as a full on entertainer and a good person. I miss you Aaliyah~
