Diana Ross is the diva to end all divas, and that is a true compliment. You should expect nothing less from the woman who embraced the labels meant to disparage her and went on to call herself "The Boss."
The Boss has always had impeccable style. From the time she catapulted to stardom in the 60s to the unleashing of her sensual side in the 80s to present day, she continues to epitomize glamour. And she clearly set the standard for women musicians to come.
