Why the Memory of Prince Protégé Denise “Vanity” Matthews Will Live On https://www.vogue.com/art...twitter_vr

Prince has certainly amassed a number of muses over his lengthy career—Apollonia, Mayte, Sheila E.—all of whom left a singular impression as style and musical harbingers. But it was Vanity, née Denise Matthews, who passed away yesterday at 57, in whom he reportedly met his match.

Big hair, barely there negligees, and saucy over-the-thigh boots: As the frontwoman of Prince’s breakout girl group, Vanity 6, the Canadian stunner always brought a sensational and electrifying spirit to the stage that played off of Prince’s gender-bending flair. Like the famous lyrics of her hit single, “Nasty Girl,” suggest, Matthews fully inhabited her sexually liberated persona. But it was the It girl’s leading-lady good looks and charm that would turn her into a star in her own right. Starring in the ’80s kung fu cult classic The Last Dragon, Matthews quickly became the girl crush to legions of young men by playing the ultimate on-screen pop diva, Laura Charles. While it was a look that certainly defined the times—she had the audacity of a latter-day Rihanna—her sartorial impressions are still felt today. Just look to the runway of Hood By Air’s Fall 2016 collection: Those racy vinyl booties look as if they might have been plucked straight from her wardrobe. Even Rodarte’s Fall 2016 collection appeared slightly touched by Matthews’s influence: heavy on the lacy ruffles and shaggy, OTT furs. It’s a sign that the style of this ’80s pop diva is bound to live on.

My fav pic from this article thumbs up! that shirt looks familar....where have I seen it before hmmm

I watched a sermon of Denise's the other night and really enjoyed it. She was such a warm,funny wonderful lady. I wish I could have spoken with her when she was inviting people to give her their number and have her call them to minister to them.

Denise was a free spirit that opened herself up to ANYONE. I have a few "I wish" moments with her also. I've finally made peace with her being angry with me.

Yes,she was very open and inviting. I'm glad that you've made peace. I felt impressed to reach out to her and I regret not doing so.
