Prince no more: Fans, peers pay tribute to legendary musician

He pushed the boundaries of fashion, and became a fashion icon with his outrageous outfits.

Low-cut blouses, flared pants, kurtas, purple (his favourite colour), beads, chest hair and even lace; he has sported it all on stage.

Remember his signature suits in bold colours with shoulder pads, and white blazers with flared pants?

Let's take a trip down memory lane and check out some of his iconic looks from the past!

It takes a lot of guts to sport a babypink jacket and matching pink pants on stage, doesn't it? In 2006, for ABC's Good Morning America Concert Series, he shaped his eyebrows, put on some kohl and even chose to show some chest hair. Photograph: Peter Kramer/Getty Images
