Today is the three-year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s passing, and his style influence continues to live on. From his piles of leather jackets—black for the “Bad” video, red for “Thriller,” and glitter-bombed for the stage—to the white ankle socks peeking out of black cropped pants, his looks are instantly recognizable and still much-replicated today (by Lady Gaga, Kanye West, and Justin Bieber, to name a few). Celebrate the King of Pop’s legacy with his top 10 best looks in the gallery.
