Days after news circulated about Aretha Franklin‘s failing health, the legendary artist reportedly passed away on Thursday, August 16, at the age of 76. While there are a few modern musical artists who have had a claim on being the Queen of Soul, there was only one who held the actual title. Franklin, who came up singing gospel in a Detroit choir, always looked nothing less than a queen onstage as well: The first woman ever to be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame loved her minks floor length, her dress slits up to here, her embroidery shiny with gold and precious gems—whatever said drama out loud. And while she famously refused to step on an airplane for much of the second half of her life, Franklin reigned in looks that traveled the globe and decades: for example, her chic bohemian caftans in the ’70s, and her showstopping fuchsia and powder blue gowns in the ’80s. Along the way, she’s had more than her share of style moments, from slaying “Nessun Dorma” at the 1998 Grammy Awards to her scene-stealing performance at Barack Obama‘s inauguration. Here, a look back at some of Franklin’s iconic moments through the years.
