Born in Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn, Lena encompassed lots of of the qualities we now think of when we hear the word diva. She was committed to her political views even to the detriment of her acting occupation being shunned from Hollywood for much of the 1950s, but she stayed steadfast to her beliefs and persevered regardless of the obstacles before her.

The style of Lena Horne

When Hollywood turned its back on her she moved back into the night club scene, did television and eventually had her own one-woman show on Broadway. Titled “Lena Horne: The lady and her Music,” the show won lots of awards and accolades.

She epitomized glamour and forever dressed to impress. She nearly always wore something off of the carry and form fitting. She knew how to accentuate her best features including her long legs and tiny waist.

Hair, Make Up and Accessories

Ms. Horne was able to achieve an upscale, classy look whenever she was photographed, but without going over the top (a common issue for today’s celebs). She made subtle use of accessories. She scarcely wore necklaces and while her earrings sparkled, they were normally small, very carefully selected pieces.

Such was the crucial to Lena’s special style—she let the clothes themselves stand out and make a statement. considering that she was always dressed in an artistic fashion masterpiece, there was no need for bold make up or accessories.

Lena was also always changing her hair so that its appeal was another focal point. A bit of mascara and a subtle lip color were her go-to, teamed with an elegant hairstyle and a couture ensemble.
