Appreciating Diana Ross' golden years of supreme bedazzled gowns and voluminous coats on her 75th birthday
When you think of Diana Ross' impact on pop culture and style through the decades, one word comes to mind repeatedly - volume, volume, volume!
Her hair, her coats and her music have always all been defined by their volume and richness. You would even think that when they said "go big or go home", they only had Diana in mind.
And this is why we laud her for her enduring unabashed star power and always en vogue extravagance.
On 26 March, this former lead vocalist of The Supremes turned 75 years old, and in true black woman style has never cracked in appearance nor on any vocal note.
So before there was Tracee Ellis Ross, there was Diana Ross, and we have never been more grateful for such a powerful mother-daughter style force.
Miss Ross' signature performance looks are often made up of standout figure-flattering embellished gowns and cascading fur, feathered or tulle coats. Many have dressed up in similar looks, but none have ever quite carried it the way this I'm Coming Out award-winning hitmaker does.
Here, we roundup a few of the most memorable appearances this doyenne of music has made over the past few decades:
'Work that body' in larger than life coats
She gives us Endless Love every time she rocks red
When she went from looking like a rose, to the dancing emoji, to the ever chic performer that she is at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards:
Be a Lion... but make it fashion
Accessorising her already lush mane with statement headgear.
When she reminded us that she's The Boss
'Holding on Together' with a fellow skinny legend
And that's why we'll always have endless love for Tracee's mama, Miss Diana Ross!
