that bow tie hat

im not really a fan of aretha but i love her respect song.

so here is an interview by wwd on her fashion sense:

"franklin thinks it “has and it hasn’t evolved” throughout her half-century-long career. for one thing, she has always delighted in fine, often surprising details and sumptuous fabrics. one of her first stage outfits, she recalls, was a black silk velvet gown with a brocade underskirt that she would reveal via a subtle flip toward the audience as the young performer took her seat at the piano. “oh, it was fabulous,” franklin remembers. “that kind of set the pace for my taste in fashion.”

im not really a big aretha fan, but yeah, everyone loves and likes her, including her music. reminds me of my uncle!
