Fashion Flashback- Diana Ross

She put the "D" in Diva. Stamped the "S" in stardom. She ran out of the curtains on Ed Sullivan Show like it was her runway. Love her or hate on her. Diana Ross is an originator of fashion and marketing trends in her own rite.

Wow! just image if she had access to weaves in her day!  Her hair would be longer than Rapunzel's! Hair manufacturers owe Diana something for her influence for hair being out there and exploring unlimited hairstyles. Lashes for days, she was a front person for lashes before the  lash extensions came to light.

She was the empowerment for women's liberation without even speaking, everytime she landed onto the stage she spread her arms wider than an eagle- and just owned it. And yes, the Supremes may have disliked it, but let's face it, it was just a simple motion of the arms, and Diana claimed it. So the b8tches just had to back up!
In this day, her fashion influences remains.... makeup, the hair, the attitude.

A Dynamic Diva- Diana Ross

Joan Smalls US Vogue May2011

When I saw the photo of Joan Smalls, I was reminded how someone look and style is ever present in our daily fashion mantra. Then bang! It hit me like a bolt of thunder, Diana Ross. She is a timeless presence in the fashion world, from her beginnings with The Supremes, expanding through her solo singing career and pivotal movie roles in Lady Sings the Blues and Mahogany.

Thanks Diana for spreading your wings and being a fashion inspiration to many and keeping the divas of the future on top of their game.

Also Happy Mother's Day to all! :)
