according to “the daily mail”,
she will have about 3 costume changes before her funeral…
The funeral home in charge of the homegoing service for the late Aretha Franklin has announced that the Queen of Soul will don multiple outfits in true diva fashion.
Linda Swanson, executive vice president of Swanson Funeral Home, which is coordinating Franklin’s viewings and other services, said the Franklin family authorized her to reveal that the singing legend’s wardrobe will be swapped out in the days leading to her burial.
What she will be wearing is a ‘surprise,’ Swanson told the Detroit Free Press, but added that the clothing will be ‘Just natural changes in wardrobe that a queen would make.’
Franklin was dressed in red to symbolize her honorary membership in the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and Owens said that dress looked like ‘something she would have selected for herself’ to wear on stage.
She told INSIDE EDITION that the red dress had a lace bodice and sleeves and a netting skirt. Her shoes were Christian Louboutins and her jewelry was custom made for the funeral.
