Chaka Khan has worn some wild getups in her time. The reigning "Queen of Funk-Soul" blows minds with her voices and turns heads in her lace dresses, sparkly jumpsuits, skin-baring tops and elaborate custom suits and gowns.

And nothing has changed since she hit the scene nearly 40 years ago--Chaka showed off her bold personal style yet again while celebrating her 60th birthday at a star-studded party in New York City Tuesday night. The singer, who recently dropped 75 pounds, stepped out in an eggplant-hued velvet dress, black-and-grey printed coat and studded, knee-high purple boots. Her signature auburn curls, which are prominently displayed on the current "Stars Tribute" issue of Billboard, looked fab too!

While some may believe the look is too young for the iconic star, we love that Chaka is still having fun with her style--especially rocking those sassy boots!
