“When you see a lot of photographs of Aretha wearing clothing, she’s in control of the clothing,” Respect costume designer Clint Ramos told Harper’s Bazaar of his experience preparing the on-screen wardrobe of the iconic Aretha Franklin (played by Jennifer Hudson). “The clothing is not wearing her.” VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans the opportunity to own signature pieces of wardrobe from the Respect movie (the limited-time auction ends June 9), including the shimmering golden gown she wears during her 25th birthday celebration (pictured) – including earrings, bracelet and matching handbag and shoes (click here for photos and more information). Check out all the screen-worn wardrobe at the Respect auction page, representing the many looks of the Queen of Soul through her career, and own a piece of music and film history today!
