Lisa Coleman and Jill Jones talk about Prince's sense of fashion; Kim Upsher is partly credited for it

Prince and the style evolution

.

By Chris Newberry

.

How did Prince develop his sense of fashion? Believe it or not, in the early years of his career he wore jeans — or dressed in the clothes of his then-girlfriend Kim Upsher, a model and former classmate at Minneapolis Central High School. "She helped him think more about style," Revolution keyboardist Lisa Coleman observed. "She was the one who wore leg warmers; that's where he got that from. She taught me about skin care. She would go shopping a lot, and we'd both end up raiding her clothes." Singer Jill Jones, who remembers Prince in bikini briefs and a cutoff sweatshirt, also went on shopping trips with him where he usually bought eclectic knickknacks, like a chandelier with candleholders. Said Jones: "He was emerging into Prince."

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

It's 2019 and people still don't know about the CTRL-F shortcut. (Or Command-F if you're on Apple.)

It's 2019 and people don't type keyboard commands--they point-click-and scroll, especially on their phones!

lol Nice teachable moment, though, and thanks for posting the link--you're a peach!

Did he put your million dollar check
