A Vintage Legacy "At Last"

"This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time...Her musical contributions will last a lifetime."

Beyonce said it best as she gives a statement after hearing of the death of Etta James. As you all have probably heard, the great soul singer Etta James passed away yesterday January 20th. She died from a chronic battle with leukemia. She also suffered from dementia and hepatitis C. Before her passing, she was awarded six Grammys and was voted into the rock and roll hall of fame. She is such a fabulous diva and her legacy will live FOREVER.  Since the 50's and 60s were such epic fashion periods it's fitting that we commemorate the vintage fashion legacy of Etta James.

Even as she aged, Etta James had such a spicy fashion sense. She and Beyonce Knowles were pictured at the premiere of Cadillac Records each donning gorgeous LBD's. Beyonce portrayed Etta James in the film Cadillac Records. The fabulous vintage costume styling of the movie is more than to die for. Check out some of my favorite looks from the movie.
