People like Patti are the only ones that have true style, I think. You can tell just by looking at her that she is something out of the ordinary.

This thread is incredible. I just returned from watching a screening of Smith's "Dream of Life" on campus and I marveled the whole time how much seemingly effortless style this iconic woman possesses. (I shouldn't call her "icon" because it reminds her of Mt. Rushmore :p).
She is my (re)new(ed) idol. And she is the most down-to-earth person; I thought she would be intimidating or abrasive but she wasn't at all. Oh, and I was lusting after her boots.

Patti's thread needed a bump. I've been fascinated by her again lately.

LOOOOOVE this live video of her doing a duet with Bob Dylan in Philadelphia, 1995. Sorry if its been posted, but it's just terrific, her power on stage.

^I love that too. Such a beautiful song and performance.

She hadn't performed in years and Dylan got her out on tour, in part to help her recover after her husband's death.

****must be a b*tch to harmonize with Bob Dylan...

I know her husband passed in November 1994, I wish I knew the exact date of this performance, but that's sweet of him to get her out of her slump by having her tour...do you know if she came onstage with him other nights?

Also, thank you La Bordelique for the karma!!
