Guess what, everyone? The lovely Olivia Newton John turns 65 today! To celebrate the cultural icon’s birthday, we decided to look back on her style and career.
The English-born Australian singer, songwriter, and actress has had a lifetime of ups and downs. Olivia Newton John started her singing career in in the late 1960s. In 1971, she represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision song contest. Although she placed fourth, it was here that her career started to take off.
It was 1978 when Olivia would become a cultural icon as the memorable Sandy Olsen in the cult musical, Grease.
In the 1980s she became known for her song, “Physical,” which took on the trends of the 80s and spurred a media frenzy. In 1991, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has since successfully recovered, allowing her to become an advocate for breast cancer research.
Olivia has been able to capture a glamorous and generation defining looks throughout her long career. What better way to celebrate than to take a look back at the life of Mrs. Newton-John through photographs.
