The "Queen of Soul" may have passed away back in August, but we’re happy to report her legacy continues to Rock Steady!
According to The Root, a total of 30 stage dresses and accessories worn by Aretha Franklin will be up for auction at New York City’s Hard Rock Cafe in on Saturday (Nov. 10) for a two-day music extravaganza.
The event, titled “Icons & Idols: Rock-n-Roll,” will feature an extensive collection of the music legend’s wardrobe acquired by Julien’s Auctions.
"After she passed away, we got 60 items from a collector," said Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien's. "It was just in time for the auction catalog."

Not in NYC? No worries, if you can’t attend the event in person (free to view from November 5-9), you can ogle at the "Property from the Career of Aretha Franklin” online at Julien's Live.
