Madonna’s cone bra. Michael Jackson’s red leather jacket. Britney Spears’s schoolgirl outfit. Beyoncé’s black leotard and heels. Lady Gaga’s meat dress. These are some of the most controversial, iconic collisions between fashion and music.
From red carpets to album covers to onstage performances, the clothing worn by famous musicians is an art form in itself. Nineteen of the greatest minds behind the music industry’s most-talked-about fashion moments are spotlighted in the book Fashion + Music: Fashion Creatives Shaping Pop Culture, out August 23 from Laurence King. Featuring exclusive interviews, photographs, and biographical text by Katie Baron, the collection details the designers’ oeuvres, which include looks created for Katy Perry, Beyoncé, and David Bowie.
