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.”

The 12 biggest fashion moments of 2020

They say that hindsight is 20/20.

And yet at the close of this year, we’re still struggling to make sense of the various ways our lives changed.

From a fashion perspective, our wardrobe needs shifted. Who could have imagined that we’d all spend so much of this year in sweatpants? Or that a cloth face mask would become everyone’s go-to statement piece?

Some of us — myself included — missed dressing up so much that we took new sartorial risks, pairing stilettos with pajamas and formalwear with slippers. It was a good reminder that deep down, we’re all really dressing for ourselves, and the so-called “rules” of style are meant to be broken.

Clothing also became even more political this year, as the election loomed and the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum. As a result, the fashion industry did some serious soul-searching, coming to terms with its

Even in 2020, Style Did Not End: Relive All the Fashion Moments – E! Online

While 2020 was a painful year most of us would like to forget, we always want to remember these clothes. 

When the coronavirus pandemic struck the United States, it swiftly posed severe challenges and robbed us of many things we had taken for granted—hugging your grandparent, taking a trip, dinner with friends, walking the aisles of a grocery store without having to wear a face mask. Doing practically anything without having to wear a mask. While covering our mouth and nose became the norm this year, the will to get dressed up every day waned as more and more people’s work situations changed or vanished completely. With each passing day, the routine of putting on clothes became more of a spandex-riddled struggle. Special occasions and their fancy outfits? Farewell. 

Outside the comfort of our couches, fashion lovers said goodbye to their favorite events as red carpet premieres came

36 Iconic 1980s Fashion Moments We Never Want to Forget

When it comes to ’80s fashion, we have a (surprising) amount to be thankful for. While the decade previously hadn’t influenced our wardrobes for a long time, in recent years, we’ve come to the realisation that all the most current trends today are courtesy of the ’80s. Now, if you’re not too familiar with the nuances of this era, there are a few standout looks we’re sure you’ll recognise: big shoulders, white jeans, underwear as outerwear and oversize jewellery. It was the decade of the power dresser but also of punks. It gave us Madonna, Sade, Tina Turner and Cher, plus numerous other superstars whose sense of style influences many right now.

Don’t believe us? From the fact that Princess Diana’s archive is inspiring some of the world’s most influential designers to the more basic resurgence in women wearing blazers with jeans again, we’ve found 36 A-list images … Read More
