Olivia Newton-John's lasting image may always be one of permed hair, bare shoulders and black spandex on the set of 'Grease' . But the late actress and singer, who died Monday at the age of 73, was a fashion icon before and long after her blockbuster musicals. John has become the epitome of this decade's anything-goes fashion. She put a glamorous twist on her bohemian aesthetic and looked as comfortable in shimmering bodysuits and evening gowns as she did with bellbottoms and miniskirts.

Her turn in "Grease" heralded a throwback to her 1950s leather-clad, but off-screen, Newton-John was already her '80s curves. I was anticipating. Choosing her short hair and bright colors, she also helped set the activewear trends of the time with her haunting music video for 1981's "Physical" (making headbands the hottest firmly established her as one of her favorite accessories).

In the decades that followed, Newton-John continued to embody her understated elegance at Hollywood awards, premieres and film festivals alike. Still, she wasn't afraid to bring out the nostalgic skintight black trousers and leather jacket in tribute to the film that made her a global star.
