Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin’s Famous Outfits Auctioned in New York

People of New York paid their homage to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin through a glimpse of her famous wardrobe, more than 30 of which were displayed at an auction in New York recently, reports the Guardian.Franklin established her reputation as Queen of Soul for her legendary voice, which mesmerized people through decades, singing for three presidents of the US: Jimmy Carter, Clinton, and Barack Obama. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W Bush in his second term. Her sartorial style was well known as she loved glitzy outfits with heavy sequins, fur, and leather boas.Franklin died of cancer at the age of 76 in August, 2018, and in her memory, a public exhibition of her outfits was held at the Hard Rock Cafe before going under the hammer.Among the famous collection auctioned at Julien’s Auctions were the red ruffled dress worn by Franklin in 1993 for a Radio City Music Hall concert, the famous denim crew jacket of Mrs Murphy played by Aretha in “The Blues Brothers,” and the amazing cream gown Franklin wore in Bill Clinton’s nomination ball.After her death, her niece became the executor of her 80 million dollar estate as she did not make any will. Her funeral too was a regal affair — at least 100 pink Cadillacs attended her funeral procession with more than 4000 people in attendance. In her last journey, she remained the fashion diva, her outfit being changed three times before her funeral service. Executive director of the sale, Martin Nolan, said: “the auction was celebrating the tremendous talents, power, and grace of America’s greatest singer of all time.”https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Alicia Vikander Stars in Louis Vuitton’s 2019 Cruise Campaign

Just in time for the New Year, Louis Vuitton has launched its 2019 Cruise Collection with the aid of a campaign directed by Ujin Lin that stars actress Alicia Vikander.Craig McDean shot the actress against the rugged Corsican coastline. Vikander most recently took to the silver screen in the continuation of the “Tomb Raider” franchise. While the paradise like scenery of the French coastline is ever present in the campaign, the collection itself is a tribute to the Fondation Maeght, where it was first shown. Put together by designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, who is the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, the collection channels the “spirit of originality” that is present in the art collected by the Fondation Maeght.The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 collection ensures that focus remains on the signature style of the bags offered by the company. Among the bags that star in the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 collection are the “Capucines” and the “Twist,” which have starburst motifs modeled after the sun sculpture present in the Place Vendome store located in Paris.Archlight sneakers come with a new finish that includes the house’s Monogram canvas and finds its way into clothing such as silk scarves. Other pieces include sunglasses, jewelry, shorts, and the “Tambour Moon Divine” watch, which have a look and feel perfect for a holiday. The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 collection is now available online and in stores.Click on the slideshow to check the collection.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
