As one of the few performers who's earned an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award Liza Minnelli knows how to put on a good show. And her love for drama doesn't stop when the curtain closes. She's a girl that loves to dress up -- no jeans and t-shirts here. She inherited her mother Judy Garland's sense of old Hollywood glamour, but has always put her own adventurous twist on things.
Liza really came into her own during the '70s when she often wore the designs of her best friend and default personal stylist Halston. Once under Halston's fashionable wing, the raven-haired beauty became a favorite of Andy Warhol and a frequent party-goer at Studio 54. She also developed a killer wardrobe with sequins, draped pants suits and furs galore. The combination of her show-stopping style, unconventional looks and that trademark short hairdo (popularized by the film "Cabaret") turned her into a fashion icon. Even at 66 she's still fabulous and has that sense of humor (have you seen Arrested Development?) we've always loved her for.
In this 1970 photo Liza grins for the paparazzi as she steps out in a swoon-worthy fall look. With her matching gray suit, fur stole and silver pendant necklace she oozes seventies New York cool. We can only imagine what hip party she was headed to. Would you try Liza's chic ensemble?
