Whitney Houston — Here are Her Most Memorable Looks

The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.

Pop music legend and actress Whitney Houston recently passed away at the far-too-young age of 48.

The Most Memorable Looks of Whitney Houston

During the ’80s and ’90s, Whitney Houston was one of the world’s most powerful and best-selling recording artists, and struck pop music gold with hits like “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “I Will Always Love You,” “How Will I Know” and “The Greatest Love of All.” She also appeared in movies like The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, and The Preacher’s Wife. But despite multiplatinum albums, model good looks, and almost supernatural vocal range, Whitney also dealt with drug addiction and a rocky relationship with husband Bobby Brown.
