Bella Donna: Cicely Tyson

A native of Harlem, NY, Cicely Tyson got her start in showbiz after being discovered by an Ebony photographer. Soon, she became a noted fashion model, her high cheekbones and piercing eyes lending a distinctive, alluring look. After appearing in her first film in 1957, she eventually garnered an Academy Award nomination in 1973. Noted for portraying strong women, Cicely has also won three Emmys and several Image Awards.

At 75, the actress and humanitarian is active in charitable organizations like UNICEF and Save the Children and is a founding member of the Coalition for a Healthy and Active America. To copy Cicely's old-school style of the early '70s, dab a shimmery blue or pink cream shadow on the lids, like Avon's Precision Glimmer Powder Eye Shadow in Blue Flare ($8) or Beyond Color Eye Shadow in Iced Mocha ($7). Top off with a sleek bun to complete her sophisticated, vibrant look.
