Actress-Singer Diana Ross

Last night, Diana Ross outshone all the young talent--including her son--at The Hunger Games: Mockinjay--Part 1 premiere in Los Angeles in a fabulous, glittering jumpsuit. Over the past few decades, Ross has established herself as a true fashion icon--the big-haired, disco-loving former front-woman of The Supremes with the ultimate eye for style. From her outrageous, overly-embellished stage outfits to her diva-off-duty, go-to sequined jumpsuits, billowing capes, and maxi dresses, Ross translated her childhood dream of being a fashion designer into a vocal career, designing costumes for herself and her fellow Supremes. While her voice is certainly something to be reckoned with, her fashion sense is a force of its own. We look at some of the singer's most iconic looks of all time.

Diana Ross looks amazing even in heavy wind and rain! During a free concert in Central Park, the singer sang through a heavy downpour for an estimated 80,000 people on July 21, 1983. While Ross said, "It took me a lifetime to get here, I'm not going anywhere," before the show, she was forced to stop singing 45 minutes into the concert.
