R&B and pop singer Natalie Cole was the daughter of the great jazz legend Nat King Cole so music always ran through her veins. This diva has sold over 30 million records around the world and has won 9 Grammys. She released an album later on in her career that was her best yet. In 1991, “Unforgettable…With Love" was released and included a duet with her father. It spent weeks at No. 1 in the pop charts and earned six Grammys.

Besides taking over the music world, Natalie Cole is also know for her fabulous gowns. Whether performing or making an appearance at an event you can always count on this R&B diva to arrive in the style that only a dive like her could pull off. We're taking about lots of shimmer, sequins, and extravagance  To this day she is still wow-ing us with her choice of gowns. If you thought she was fabulous back in the day, look at her now.
