Our Favourite 70s Beauty Icons

News

Right now, we’re feeling a bit of a 70s vibe (lets face it, no decade did ‘summer beauty’ better). So in that spirit, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite icons from the 20th Century’s grooviest decade…  

Diana Ross 

The 70s were a bold decade for beauty, big hair and even bigger lashes – and the “You Can’t Hurry Love” hit-maker was the epitome of it all.  

Beverly Johnson  

Despite numerous rejections from agencies because of her skin colour, the trailblazing model made history in 1974 for being the first black woman on the cover of Vogue.  

Tina Turner  

A decade away from her trademark layered mullet and flame-red lipstick, back in the 70s she was a stunning beauty with her doe-eyes and long swishy locks (together with the most famous legs in music!) 

Teresa Graves  

Famed for her luminous beauty, the popular actress and singer made history as being the first African American woman to star in her own television show ‘Get Christie Love!’ which won her a Golden Globe nomination in 1975. 

Lola Falana

Giving us all the eyeliner goals, the singer TV and Broadway star rose through the ranks to become the highest paid performer in Las Vegas. Modelling for the perfume line Faberge Tigress, she was also the first black woman to model for a mainstream cosmetics line.    

Donna Summer  

With her cascading curls and unforgettable vocal style, Summer defined a new disco sound thanks to the hit single “I Feel Love”. And she’s been synonymous with Studio 54 and glamourous glitter-ball style ever since.
