Maison Martin Margiela Michael Jackson inspired items

This jacket from Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2008 collection was obviously inspired by Michael Jackson's Thriller jacket.

Although Margiela jacket is more black with red rather than red with black like Michael's, the resemblance is undeniable.

And here is Pharrell Williams rocking the above-mentioned nylon biker jacket.

This look from Margiela Spring 2008 collection seems to be Thriller inspired as well.

Michael Jackson inspired outifts

Look how fabulously did Brittany dress up as the King of Pop. By the way, she looks so much like him.

She even got her own Bubbles!

And this is Stixy who rocked this awesome "Beat It" inspired outfit to the "80s Musician's" costume party.

Apparently Bubbles is a must!

The last but not the least - Chrissie and her beautiful version of Billie Jean.

"Bad" how-to

So this time it's about the recreation of probably our favorite Michael look - the one he sported in the Scorcese directed music video "Bad".
That's a really badass look, but it is also a very over-the-top one. The outfit may seem a bit overaccessorized, but that's exactly what this look is about - buckles and straps, heaps of black and tight fit - but just the right amount to show who's bad ;)
