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'.
Absinth, decadence and surrealist theatre in Berlin
Cabaret (Bob Fosse) - Outside it is vindy, but here, it is so hot. Every night we have za battle to keep the girls from taking off all their clothing. So, don’t go avay. Who knows, tonight we may lose the battle.
Though a Hollywood production, it was filmed on location in Berlin; many supporting parts were played by German actors and actresses. Cabaret won eight Academy Awards (Oscars) in 1973, including “Best Actress” for Liza Minnelli in her signature role as Sally Bowles. Definitely a “must-see”!
