Ain’t no (fashion) mountain high enough for this iconic pop star! The legendary Diana Ross swept onstage at the 2019 Grammy Awards in a voluminous scarlet gown befitting her diva status. The dress featured a satin bodice, sheer tulle sleeves and matching drop earrings, plus her timeless signature curls and red lipstick.
Her performance was in honor of her milestone birthday – she turns 75 years old next month – as well as to highlight all her accomplishments in her trailblazing career as a musician throughout the years not only as a solo performer but also as part of the most successful female group of all time, The Supremes. To make it even more memorable, she was introduced by her nine-year-old grandson Raif-Henok, the son of her daughter Rhonda Ross.
Ross’ Grammys performance is her second major milestone performance for the music awards show; in 2012, Ross received the Lifetime Achievement Award – which came after 12 priornominations.
In the days leading up to the performance, Ross got buzz going by posting a throwback shot with the caption, “A Diamond Diana birthday celebration on the Grammys, Feb 10th. Sending Love and Appreciation to all @recordingacademy#DiamondDiana“.
