HCB Black History Month Spotlight: Lena Horne

HCB Black History Month Spotlight: Lena Horne

Born on June 30, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York this singer, dancer, actress, and activist was a classy feisty woman. She was actively involved in the civil rights movement and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated. Her achievements include a Tony and a Grammy lifetime achievement award.

Her style is classic and lady-like. If you want to mirror Ms. Horne’s style opt for sleek updos and well groomed full curls. Go for a rich red or berry lip and well groomed brow. Find some dresses with clean lines in colors like peach or taupe and dress them up with pearls and floral accents such as a headband or scarf. 

No matter if you're going to a red carpet premiere or spending a Saturday morning volunteering, if you want a look like Lena Horne's keep it sophisticated.
