Tina Turner's unique look set her apart from other artists of her time and made her a true style icon that influenced generations of fans.

Cotemporary performers like Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, and Janelle Monáe (to name a few!) draw inspiration from her dynamic presence, fearless fashion choices, and unapologetic individuality.

And it's without question that the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll's impact on the world of music and fashion will forever remain significant. 

Known for her femininity, versatility and showmanship, Jennifer Lopez, 53, has acknowledged Tina Turner as one of her style inspirations. 

The award-winning artist has channeled Tina's confidence, sex appeal and glamour on and off the stage with chart-topping ensembles that show off her incredible figure.

Tina's performance outfits were designed to maximize her presence in front of the crowd. 

She incorporated elements like fringe details, thigh-high boots, fishnet stockings, and sparkly embellishments, all details J.Lo loves.

We've even seen Taylor Swift rock out in a fringe mini dress. 

Beyoncé, 41, often referred to as the Modern-day Queen of Pop, expressed her admiration for Tina after her passing, saying  'I love you endlessly. I am so grateful for your inspiration and all the ways you have paved the way,' on her website.

The 'Crazy in Love' singer incorporates many signature elements of Turner's costumes into her own performances.

From plunging necklines to over-the-knee hemlines and sequin beading, Beyoncé showcases her timeless beauty and style in ensembles that emphasize her powerful vocals and dynamic dance moves. 

Tina's stage costumes were like her hairstyle: bold, daring, and designed to command attention.

In 1977 she wore a bedazzled white bodysuit featuring a carwash front panel that showcased her killer legs.

Jennifer Lopez performed on stage during the 2018 Time 100 Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center in 2018 in New York City in a look very similar.

Rihanna, 35, is a bonafide fashion star with a rebellious vibe.

From her unconventional maternity style to her show-stopping red carpet looks, the 'Umbrella' singer's sartorial choices often reflect a fearless and bold approach similar to the late Tina Turner.

From denim and leather to heavy-handed jewelry, Rihanna has embraced a rock 'n' roll edge that perfectly aligns with her fierce persona.

By combining luxury labels with up-and-coming designers, vintage, and sportswear, Riri creates eye-catching looks that echoe the essence of Tina Turner's influence.

Janelle Monáe, 37, is known for her eclectic fashions and musical artistry.

The American singer, actor, and rapper has cited Tina Turner as one of her style inspirations. 

Monáe's sartorial choices often blend masculine and feminine aesthetics in a black and white color palette, peppered with unexpected brights. 

Though it wasn't her signature look, Tina often incorporated androgynous pieces into her repertoire, pairing top hats with three-piece suits and button-down blouses with neckties. 

This gender fusion showcased the Grammy-winner's ability to create a unique and timeless style celebrated by today's starlets. 

Singers aren't the only ones inspired by the 'Proud Mary' powerhouse. 

In 1970, Tina donned a glamorous sequined bodysuit with a fringe skirt, topped by an orange cape, while performing on stage.

In 2019, Kendall Jenner attended the 2019 Met Gala celebrating 'Camp: Notes on Fashion' at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a similar jaw-dropping look. 

Kendall's custom Atelier Versace gown featured intricate headwork, extravagant feathers and a figure-hugging silhouette, all staple elements of Tina's stage wardrobe.
