It’s hard to believe that 12 years ago, we lost R&B sweetheart Aaliyah in a tragic plane accident, but we’ve never stopped celebrating her life, her beauty and her talent.  The late songstress would have celebrated her 34th birthday today, and we’re honoring her by taking a look back at her signature tomboy meets sassy-girl-next-door style.  We’re pretty sure nobody rocks a pair of slouchy leather pants and a cropped top like our girl, Aaliyah!

    Aaliyah will always be one in a Billion. Her Style, her persona & her talent. None of these female artist today come close to her swag she was ans always will be in her own lane.

    Love Aaliyah…she was on her way to being great..all her songs are classics..peep her style at a young age and how she flows, rapped/sung over a crazy track and danced in heels and switched it to the tomboy bad girl…if yall peep closely…Beyonce is a lot like AAliyah…B just had time to evolve and grow into stardom..Aaliyah started it
