Whitney Houston Dies, Her Glittering Style Remembered (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Whitney Houston, whose glittering fashion statements were as big as her voice, has died at the age of 48, AP reports.

The news hit as fashionistas across New York City hopped from fashion show to fashion show, stopping their constant stream of Fashion Week Twitter updates to tweet the news of Houston's passing.

While in recent years Houston was known more for her erratic behavior and ongoing battle with drug abuse, she remained an entertainment superstar (she was set to star in a remake of 1976's "Sparkle" and just today The Hollywood Reporter reported she'd been approached to join "The X Factor" as a judge).

And within the fashion world, of course, Whitney will always be remembered for having style befitting her "diva" status. With her debut album, Whitney Houston, dropping in 1985, her fashion epitomized '80s glam: big shoulders, slinky skirts, sequins galore and major hair.

Over the years her jacket shoulders may have shrunk, but thankfully her hair --and her diva attitude -- never did. Below, take a look back at Whitney Houston's all-too-brief life in outfits.
