There was no woman more emblematic of '70s, disco-era fashion than Diana Ross. While she could be considered just as influential during her reign as queen of one of the most successful '60s girl groups ever (the Supremes, natch, in their matching ensembles), a decade later her fashion sensibility gained an appealingly sultry vibe. Much of it seemingly in step with that of Tracy, the over-the-top stylish fashion designer she played in Mahogany. With her slinky, draped Halston and Bob Mackie gowns, fur stoles, wide-brimmed hats, angel sleeves and sequins galore, Ross always looked ready to shake her groove thing.
