Diana Ross’ Most Iconic Looks
Happy birthday, Diana Ross! The supreme diva turns 71 today (March 26).
And the legendary performer still rocks the big hair, glittering gowns and winsome smile.
Ross rose to stardom as a member of the girl group The Supremes. But wildly ambitious, she soon became the lead singer before departing for even loftier pastures as a solo artist.
Her career skyrocketed with a slew of hits, and it soon became evident that Diana Ross was that rare entertainer – the triple threat – with a career in music, movies and Broadway.
No wonder Billboard magazine anointed her “Female Entertainer of the Century.”
At the height of her career, in the summer of 1983, she staged a free concert in New York’s Central Park. The highly anticipated event drew more than 450,000 people, but Ross barely started the concert before a torrential summer storm broke.
