'70s pop star Helen Reddy may be Michelle Obama's style godmother. Both of these strong women love to show off their toned arms -- and they should, they have us ready to grab those dumbbells stat. The Austrialian-born singer knew how to perfectly showcase her guns -- in sleeveless halter tops and strapless dresses that screamed "I Am Woman."

In this photo from a concert in 1975, Reddy's floral top (those arms!) and wrap-skirt are the epitome of summer style. Donning a pair of high-heeled sandals and waving a microphone over her head, we can only imagine the feminist fashionista singing "Angie Baby," but we sure can try to reproduce her stylish look.
