Aretha Franklin was legendary for many things, including both her voice and her style. She arrived on stage wearing full-length fur coats, feather boas and sequin-covered gowns. The singer, who died at the age of 76, even had an outfit change for each day of her memorial services in August.

This fall, fans of the diva’s fashion sense have the opportunity to own a piece of her wardrobe. Some of the most iconic ensembles from the Queen of Soul are set to go to auction on Saturday, November 10. Highlights of the catalogue include a crew jacket from the 1998 Blues Brothers film, in which Franklin played Mrs. Murphy, as well as the white silk gown Franklin wore when she performed at President Bill Clinton’s second inauguration. And don’t forget the suit the star wore on the Oprah Winfrey show.

“Julien’s Auctions is honored to present this auction event celebrating the tremendous talents, power and grace of America’s greatest singer of all time, Aretha Franklin,” Martin Nolan, the executive director of Julien’s Auctions said in a press release about the sale, according to Town & Country.

The sale will take place on November 9 and 10, and you can shop in person in New York City or online.
