Classic Patsy portrait

Patsy Cline was not considered conventionally beautiful, but her glamorous and surprising personality shone through even in photos.

Cline with band

She was famous for chemistry with her audiences.

Although her make-up and hair are done-up, Patsy seems to be caught in a candidly friendly look here.
