The month of March has been good to us, giving rise to a host of musical icons whose sense of fashion is as colorful as their sound -- from Chaka to Aretha to Diana Ross, who celebrates her 68th birthday today.
Born Diana Ernestine Earle Ross on March 26, 1944, the former Supreme puts the "D" in diva, defining R&B's legendary Motown Sound and keeping her look supremely stylish along the way.
Ross' look, alongside her singing chops, is what's said to have propelled her to the Supremes' most coveted spot. From there she's graciously carried off a four-decade-long run, which included acting and modeling and birthing five children in between.
Happy birthday, Diana Ross!
