Unforgettable Oscar Dos

It's no secret that celebs often spend weeks searching for just the right gown for the Oscars. But sometimes it's their hairstyle that makes the real fashion statement.


Blaxploitation film Foxy Brown hit screens in 1974 and made the Afro a fashion statement. That same year, Diana Ross -- who played host, along with John Huston, David Niven and Burt Reynolds -- sported one to the Academy Awards, symbolizing the "black is beautiful" era.
