Following a protracted battle with breast cancer, 73-year-old Olivia Newton-John passed away last week. The Australian singer, actress, and activist is best known for her chart-topping singles Physical and Have You Never Been Mellow, but she was also a major impact on pop culture during the 1970s and 1980s because to her distinctive looks and sense of style, which are still relevant today.
Actress Rebel Wilson and her co-star from A Few Best Men described her as “the most stunning lady inside and out” and a “genuine Aussie legend” in their tributes. “I know her voice is singing wonderfully with the angels,” the singer Dolly Parton penned. Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan complimented Priyanka Chopra for “the songs” back home. “Your legacy will always shine,” Jonas wrote.
Although she was already a well-known singer, Olivia Newton-portrayal John’s as Sandy Olsson in the smash musical Grease (1978) propelled her to greater heights of celebrity. In the movie, Sandy changes her appearance from a nice, innocent high school student who dresses conservatively in dresses with little puffed sleeves and ribbon-tied ponytails to a raunchy, red-lipped girl who wears leather leggings, off-shoulder blouses, leather jackets, and a large curly hairstyle. Newton-John became a fashion legend because to his striking appearance, which has endured the test of time. In actuality, during the previous several years, supermodel Gigi Hadid and Hailey Beiber both dressed as Sandy for Halloween.
Her off-screen outfits weren’t the only ones to have an impact on the fashion world. Bodysuits and leotards gained popularity thanks to Olivia Newton-music John’s videos and public appearances. The singer appeared at a Grease party with her co-star from the movie, John Travolta, wearing a bodysuit with a square neckline. She donned the most talked-about outfit from the show, a full-body fuchsia bodysuit with tassels, for her appearance on the television programme Hollywood Nights. Tyagi describes her look as ageless and notes that the bodysuit and leotard trends of the 1980s are currently in vogue.
Everything is still very relevant. These outfits are frequently worn by celebrities including singer Dua Lipa and reality TV personality Kim Kardashian.
