Lady Style: Diana Ross

While my previous style icons were ladies (and Princes) I’ve admired for years, I am just starting to get in to Diana Ross. I’m discovering what this guy already knew: Diana Ross has always had fabulous hair, makeup, and style.


This photo looks like it was taken yesterday. I want to try this look with my hair.



The different hairstyles in these pictures suggest that she wore this rhinestone bodysuit on more than one occasion. Rhinestone bodysuits, as Cher would gladly tell you, and the height of glamour! Don’t relegate them to “wedding dress status” and only wear them once.


While I believe that all ladies are beautiful in their own way and that any of us can look glamorous with the right hair and makeup, you have to be born with some seriously bananas bone structure to look this glam in a tshirt and jeans.


The eyelashes!


I can’t even wrap my head around what’s going on here.


The more I look at this, the more I think I need to buy some false eyelashes.


This is Diana Ross doing the whole, “Oh, hello. I didn’t see you come in!” thing.

Finally, here’s the ultimate Diana Ross picture to go out on. She just caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and can’t believe how great she looks.

Here’s Some Advice: Don’t Eat Monte Cristos

Once, in my pre-H days, a dinner date of mine ordered a Monte Cristo. I told him it was disgusting. I can’t turn this off, guys. My natural charm just shines through!

Here’s some advice: I am all about “everything in moderation,” because that’s a cliche and I love cliches, but maybe just don’t eat a Monte Cristo. Especially not on a date. Do you really need to eat a battered and fried ham sandwich? Listen to your heart. It’s saying, “Don’t kill me.”
