n my mind, Aaliyah invented crop tops. I don’t even care if that’s not factually or historically accurate. We truly (at least partly) owe today’s most prominent fashion trend to the late singer. Aaliyah was only 22 when she died in a plane crash on her way back from shooting the “Rock the Boat” video in the Bahamas in 2001. Today, January 16th, would have been her 38th birthday and to honour the late singer and style icon, we’ve rounded up her best outfits (and crop tops) ever.
