Smithsonian Requests Aretha Franklin's Inauguration Hat

Michelle Obama's now-famous Jason Wu gown isn't the only piece of Inaugural fashion that is headed for the Smithsonian. The museum is also requesting the now-iconic hat that Aretha Franklin wore while singing at the swearing-in.

Aretha, however, is still undecided about parting with her Luke Song-designed hat. "I am considering it. It would be hard to part with my chapeau since it was such a crowning moment in history," says the Queen of Soul.
