#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty History 🌟 A GEENIE series giving flowers to the women and femmes whose beauty and talent sparkled and reigned supreme over time. Today we're honoring Gail Fisher - one of the first Black actresses to play substantive roles in American television 👏🏾 The Moment: It's June 7, 1970 at the Century Plaza Hotel, located in Los Angeles, California. We're attending the 22nd Annual Emmy Awards - Where Gail Fisher is nominated for her first Emmy under the category "Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Drama". Her achievement goes down in history not once, but twice! This makes her the first Black actress to be nominated for this award, plus the first to win in that category 🏆 The iconic moment calls for a stunning lewk to match - a bouffant half updo, thick brows, voluminous lashes and nude lip combo characteristic of the 60s. The beauty is matched by a shiny ensemble made entirely from beaded silver rings and dangly chains, paired with a crisp white mock neck. *SWIPE* to admire Gail Fisher's joyful vibe and Emmy acceptance speech 🎥 via Television Academy (Youtube) Drop some 💐💐💐 for Gail Fisher below!
