We dig the 70′s styles on birthday lady Diana Ross!

Diana Ross was born March 26, 1944 in Detroit, Michigan. She was born to a U.S. Army soldier father and a schoolteacher mother and raised in the projects, on the north side of Detroit. Ross, as a member of Motown’s The Supremes, had her first big hit in 1964 with “Where Did Our Love Go?” She’s since had a long career as a solo act and as an Oscar-nominated actress.
Throughout her career, this diva has been lauded for her unique personal style. According to biographies, Ross wanted to be a fashion designer and studied design and pattern making at Cass Technical High School in Detroit as a young woman. Instead, she became an iconic singer and took her passion for fashion with her.

Born Diana Ernestine Earle Ross, the former Supreme puts the “D” in diva, defining R&B’s legendary Motown Sound and keeping her look supremely stylish along the way. Ross’ look, alongside her singing chops, is what’s said to have propelled her to the Supreme’s most coveted spot. From there she’s graciously carried off a four-decade-long run, which included acting and modeling and birthing five children in between.

With a solo career punctuated by roles in films like “Mahogany” and “Lady Sings The Blues,” Ross’ post-Supremes career is just as memorable (and fabulous) as her early work. And at 68 she’s undoubtedly passing the torch of iconic style. From Mary J. Blige to her daughter, actress Tracee Ellis Ross, a stylish legacy can’t help but carry on.

Happy birthday, the Divine Ms. Diana Ross!
