In 1972 Liza Minnelli won the Best Actress Oscar for her role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. The distinct style of the character soon became Minnelli's signature look, and she sported a short black bob, huge eyelashes and dark eye make-up throughout the decade. She topped off the look with a host of glamorous dresses from her close friend Halston, who designed all the costumes for her 1973 show Liza with a 'Z'.
Singin' in the Rain. I love this film. I've only seen it a couple of times, but it's just wonderful! Perhaps I'll add it to my collection as I don't actually own it - this is a great excuse to buy myself some DVDs! Apparently Gene Kelly had a really high temperature/fever when he did the famous "Singin' in the Rain" scene, but he powered through! Crazy!
