Vintage Vibes | Cicely Tyson

Vintage Vibes | Cicely Tyson

We’ve always been a huge fan of Oscar-nominated Cicely Tyson and her fearless style. Her confidence, poise and fashion choices throughout the years has always caught our eye.  Ms. Tyson is a living legend and known for her groundbreaking portrayals in film, TV, and theater, which spans over six decades.  She was the first black woman to wear cornrows on national television, and she refused to compromise her personal style and natural boldness in the 60’s and 70’s.

Here are a few our favorite vintage vibe looks that Ms. Tyson slayed back in the day.
