    A List Of Tina Turner’s Best Fashion Moments

    A list of Tina Turner’s best fashion moment over 60-plus-years in the spotlight.

    Tina Turner may be known as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, but she’s also the Queen of Fashion.

    With the help from designers, collaborators, and her own good taste, Anna Mae Bullock transformed herself from a small-town ingénue to a global superstar.

    Here’s a look at some of Tina Turner’s most memorable fashion moments.

    Tina wore this jacquard and chiffon green dress during a photo shoot was meant to promote her as an R&B duo with her then-husband, Ike Turner. She was 25-years-old here and looked very much the ’60s ingenue.

    Tina wore this navy-and-white hounds tooth suit during a recording of the musical television show Ready Steady Go! in London. Around 27-years-old here, Tina was still married to Ike and still stayed largely covered-up while she was performing.

    While Ike & Tina further rose to stardom, Tina began to wear fringed dresses at many of her performances, like her iconic 1970 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

    This iconic 1977 outfit is important for Tina’s career on multiple levels. For one, it symbolized her officially “spreading her wings” in the wake of her divorce from Ike Turner. And two, it was the debut of the look of the new Tina. This new Tina was bolder, sexier, and often dressed by famous costume designer Bob Mackie.

    This look was one of the many revealing outfits that Tina wore on her post-divorce tour. The bedazzled bustier-corset was, once again, designed by the famous Bob Mackie.

    Another post-divorce tour dress, this orange, feathered Bob Mackie “flame dress” was peak diva.

    This ripped-up, She-Rah outfit is a look that symbolizes Tina Turner’s transition from newly-solo artist to global superstar and icon. She wore this1983 outfit right before she released her mega-hit album Private Dancer in ’84 along with the smash single, “What’s Love Got to Do With It”. Here, you can see she’s already starting to transition to her signature shag wig.

    This dress-pant, dress-shirt, loose tie-combo perfectly encapsulates Tina Turner’s iconic look, down to the shaggy rock star hair cut. It was at this time that Tina Turner completely came into her own and was comfortable with her edgy, rock diva image.

    Many people might recognize this outfit from the music video for “What’s Love Got to Do With It”, and indeed, it’s very similar. Tina wore this outfit during her “Private Dancer” tour throughout 1985. The jean jacket, the leather miniskirt, the fish nets, the honey-blonde wig. This is the Tina look and what people think of when they think of the Queen of Rock.

    This outfit — faded jeans, white, flowy button-down — shows another, more informal side of Tina. This was one of the outfits she wore while on her “Foreign Affair” tour in 1990.

    The belted silver chainmail frock that Tina wore at Radio City Music Hall in 1993 highlighted all of her best assets: her muscular arms, her figure, and her incredible legs. This dress is probably the outfit people most remember her in.
