Late last night the devasting news broke that legendary musician Prince had died in his Minnesota home, aged 57. 

Prince performed at two concerts in Atlanta last week, seemingly in good health, but his private plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois after the singer became unwell on the way home. He was hospitalised but released three hours later. He appeared at a dance party a short time afterwards where, although he didn't perform, he told the crowd, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers." 

Reports surrounding the cause of death point to "severe flu" as the reason, however investigations are still ongoing. 

The celebrity world is in shock at the sudden loss, with many taking to Twitter to share their pain upon learning of the icon's passing. 

Here, Bazaar takes a look back at some of the singer's most iconic style moments. Never one to shy away from taking a sartorial risk, and always pushing the envelope on unconventional style, Prince truly was, and will forever remain, a fashion icon. - Maddison Glendinning
