Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown - Proud to Be Loud
True diva style, it might be said, is a dying art. Sure, newbies like Destiny's Child and Christina Aguilera aim for over-the-top flamboyance, but their approach is all flash and flesh--with very little flair.
Clearly they could stand to take notes from the ever eye-popping Whitney Houston. Case in point: the neon purple faux fur Houston paraded at this year's Academy Awards. Houston, 37, likes to look "cool but glamorous," says stylist Patti Wilson, who has worked with both the singer and her husband, R&B artist Bobby Brown, 32. And always, "she's gotta have her heels!" A fan of form-fitting designs by Pamela Dennis and Roberto Cavalli, Houston "has a basic instinct for how she wants to look," adds her cousin, singer Dionne Warwick. As does Brown, who Wilson says conveys a mix of "street and glam." Notes designer Dennis: "They both have great confidence and can pull off something when others cannot."
Piece on Whitney & Bobby appears in the print version of People.
