With the release of a new album featuring covers of contemporary hits, legendary diva Aretha Franklin has been popping up in the news quite a bit lately more so than usual. I thought it would be kind of fun to take a look back at her career, particularly the fashion. No matter the decade, she has always rocked some seriously amazing looks.
