It was the hat of the day.  The black hat with a bow that Aretha Franklin wore to the inauguration.  It turns out it made a big impression not only on the audience but it caught the attention of the Smithsonian.  The Smithsonian has now asked the Queen of Soul for the hat.  They reportedly want to include it in their collection.  "I am considering it," was Aretha’s response.  You can buy a replica for yourself for $179.
