Today’s Throwback Natural is the SUPREME DIVA herself! Diana Ross, born is an American singer and actress. Ross was lead singer of the Motown group The Supremes during the 1960s. After leaving the group in 1970, Ross began a solo career that included successful ventures into film and Broadway. She received a Best Actress Academy Award nomination for her role as Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues (1972), for which she won a Golden Globe award. She won several American Music Awards, garnered twelve Grammy Award nominations, and won a Tony Award for her one-woman show, An Evening with Diana Ross, in 1977.
My most favorite Diana Ross movie is Mahogany! Such beauty! Such grace! The fashion ain’t bad either 😉 Between her tumultuous relationship with Billy Dee Williams to the hair and make up for photo shoots and fashion shows, this movie is not to be missed!
Diana Ross is also mother to one of our favorite curly girlfriends, Joan! That’s right folks! Tracee Ellis Ross is the daughter of Diana Ross!
