Chaka Khan’s megawatt smile is the best accessory to complete her glamorous 70’s swathed in fur style.
After joining the Black Panther party in 1969, Yvette Marie Stevens changed her name to Chaka, which means fire. Her fierce fashions and vocals were filled with just that.
Khan struck the perfect sexy balance. Curve hugging, and midriff baring looks were her style, but always tastefully done.
Bohemian flower child was Chaka Khan’s style inspiration in the early 70s.
Her flowing feathers and arm adornments made her a free-spirit with fashion.
Khan was fearless and accentuated her curves in skin-tight leather pants and bandeau or bikini tops.
Khan became just as recognized for her big billowy hair as she did her voice.
Chaka exuded confidence on and off the stage. This ensemble is just as colorful, bright and bold as she is.
This Rufus & Chaka Khan album cover for “Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan” is legendary. Khan goes for a bohemian, Native American vibe with feathers and fur tails.
In the 80s Khan transitioned her style to the over-the-top fashions of the time but her natural ’do remained the same.
Chaka Khan draws all eyes on stage in a sexy and playful tulle party dress and lace fingerless gloves.
