    Get the Look: Billie Holiday

    "Lady Day" was one of the greatest and most influential jazz singers of all time, known for her deeply personal interpretations, often melancholy sound, and her distinct phrasing, influenced by jazz instrumentalists.

    Holiday appeared with big bands (she was one of the first African American women to appear with a white orchestra when she sang with Artie Shaw's band in 1938) and smaller combos, and she recorded extensively.

    The most enduring image of Billie Holiday dates from around 1940: At the microphone, in a beautiful gown, gardenias in her hair, head thrown back. Explore her style with dramatic, stage-worthy evening clothing from the 1940s and 50s including off-the-shoulder looks, satin, sequins and beading; 1940s printed rayon dresses; turbans, head wraps and head-turning hats; furs and feathers; bold and exotic jewelry—and of course, flowers.
