Cicely Tyson Reflects on Her Iconic Fashion Moments: “You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar It Stops the Show”

The legendary actress, soon to publish her memoir, discusses embracing a fearless fashion style in her 90s, conceived by her designer of the past 15 years, B Michael, who says, “I see her as Hollywood royalty.”

At the 1973 Oscars, best actress nominee Cicely Tyson (for Sounder) was the picture of chic in a striking fur piece, white long-sleeved sheath and marcelled hair. “I decided that if Rebecca [her character] was wealthy at that time, she would look a certain way and that is what she would wear,” the actress remembers. “I wanted to find a hairdresser who could do that hairdo, and I had great difficulty, but my hairdresser’s mother came out of retirement to do it for me.”

“Nothing is more beautiful than freedom of the body,” she once said, and her designs lived by these words: Chanel’s silhouettes were fluid and androgynous, her designs loose and — in the case of her iconic little black dress, or LBD — democratic.
