Lionel Richie is not only Nicole Richie’s dad, he’s a fashion icon! Oh, you didn’t know? We’re about to show you his greatest looks including all his best blouses and blazers (and we love a good blazer)!

There have been many celebrated fashionistas. When the word comes to mind, Madonna, Rihanna or Carrie Bradshaw may pop into your head. Lionel Richie…not so much! But we’re here to inform you that the former Commodore’s singer is truly an eclectic dresser and we plan on shedding light on some of his greatest looks (with great humor, of course).

Journey with us through the ages for a look back at Lionel’s greatest blouses and blazers!

That time he debuted his Christmas line….

That time he turned up the sexy and let his nips breath…

That time his pen exploded and made a vibrant design…

That time he caused a blackout because his lapels were so shiny…

That time Michael had to wear sunglasses to stand next to him…

That time the juice from his hair dripped all over his blazer…

That time they accidentally swapped his wardrobe with Prince’s

That time he stole poinsettias to decorate his blouse…

That time he thought he was a the “Watch The Throne” concert…

Actually, we want this…

That time he matched the back lights…

That time his shoulder pads took over his show…

That time he thought he was a pastor…
