It's officially the start of Black History Month and we can think of no better way to celebrate day one than with a diva. Diana Ross is an icon to African-American culture in a number of ways. Her music, her diva attitude and of course, her style. Everything has always been about glitz and glamour for the Motown artist even during her days with The Supremes. She never feared standing out, and she always made it her business to be seen and talked about at every event—from performances to photo shoots. Below we've put together looks that were inspired by her unforgettable style. If you have the same diva attitude as Ross, you'll love these looks, starting with the one pictured above!
