Style Icon: Diana Ross

Diana Ross is a living legend and Motown royalty. Her name is synonymous with glamour, style, and elegance. She is know for her soulful voice as well as her iconic style. Even when she was with The Supremes (1959- 1970), she designed many of their costumes

Her style evolved throughout her career, whether it was her glamorous mod style of the 60s, her feisty disco era style of the 70s, or her big and colorful style of the 80s. Miss Ross always kept it sexy but classy and had her own individual style (and still does). She wore casual with simple elegance and evening gowns like a queen. 

Diana Ross and the Supremes
Diana Ross and Michael Jackson were good friends. She helped launch the Jackson 5. Their debut album was named: "Diana Ross presents the Jackson 5."
A few of her movies: Lady Sings the Blues (1972), Mahogany (1975) and The Wiz (1978)
Received a best actress academy award nomination and won a Golden Globe for her role as Billie Holiday in Lady sings the Blues.
Played Tracey Chambers, in Mahogany, a poor aspiring fashion designer who became a popular fashion designer in Rome.
♥Played Dorothy in the urbanized retelling of the classic movie The Wizard of Oz

We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Stay fashionable!
