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'.
