On Her Own: Patti Labelle

Barney Hoskyns, Vogue, 1987

PATTI LABELLE HAS seen it all – lived through every phase of black American pop from the doo-woppy girl groups of the early 1960s to the synthesised dance music of today, not to mention sported every kind of get-up from Woolworth's pastel dresses to Claude Montana jackets.

Total word count of piece: 388
