Michael Jackson’s Death Anniversary: King Of Pop Music & King Of Fashion
Michael Jackson music fans shouldn’t think it’s strange, that we’re remembering his death anniversary after four years. Die hard fans know, that he is the king of pop, a world icon and also the king of fashion. Everyone’s got something to hold on to, for their favorite artist and for me it’s the fashions of Michael Jackson and the way he’s inspired many fashionistas.
My fashion memory of him is childhood/teen Michael Jackson with his vintage fashions of afros, bell bottom pants, large lapel jackets and paper hats and fedoras. I think I love it because those fashions stood the test of time and are classic. Also, let’s not forget his beautiful face which he thought was ugly during that time, but was gorgeous though that’s another story.
Regardless, his music continues to inspire and appeal to new generations, and it’s amazing to see children who may not quite know him, bopping to his songs, like ‘Beat It’ or ‘Thriller’. We remember you on your death anniversary Michael Jackson.

Eva Cheung in Harajuku w/ Pink-Blue Hair, Dee & Ricky Sneakers & Michael Jackson
Eva Cheung (aka Eva Pinkland) is a famous kawaii model from Hong Kong. She was in Tokyo for the last few weeks participating in various fashion events, as well as appearing on NHK television. We spent some time with her while she was hanging around in Harajuku (thanks Kaila!), and Eva was way too sweet.
When we snapped Eva in Harajuku, she was wearing a red jacket with a blue top, a black mini-skirt, and Dee & Ricky x Pony sneakers. Accessories include a red cap, a Yazbukey Michael Jackson necklace, a Mickey Mouse badge, a Ronald McDonald wrist watch, lots of colorful bracelets, a tattoo necklace, and an MCM backpack. Her dip dye pink-blue hair also adds to the kawaii factor.
