From his iconic penny loafers, to that red leather ‘Thriller’ jacket, and his now unforgettable white ‘Smooth Criminal’ trilby.

2. Red Leather Jacket
3. Penney Loafers
4. Fedora Hat
5. Military Jackets
6. Aviator Sunglasses
7. Sequin Jacket

In honour of the King of Pop’s enduring legacy, director Spike Lee upholds his annual tradition of celebrating Michael’s birthday, his work, and his life with a free outdoor party in New York. ‘Brooklyn Loves MJ’ is now in its fifth year, with the first party taking place just months after Jackson’s sudden death in 2009.

Other parties celebrating Jackson’s life include Cirque du Soleil’s ‪#‎MJWeAreOne‬ campaign, with fans around the world sharing how they’ve been inspired by the King of Pop via Instagram, proving that his music and talent still have a global reach. Also coming up is the MJ Global Birthday Party ‪#‎MJGBP2014‬ which sees fans celebrate over three days with videos, songs, and message boards all in 3D for this year’s theme.
