It’s a living legend’s birthday!
Today, 3/26, Diana Ross turns 77 years old. This big-hair, bright-eyed beauty has given us years of countless hits, fabulous fashion looks, and offspring that we simply can’t live without.
Diana Ross defines just about every goal a black girl could have. She’s managed an extremely successful career and inspired so many women of color to achieve their dreams.
