Breaking news! This week’s Throwback Thursday is dedicated to a stunner. Barbara Walters (or, more affectionately known in the PBJ office as Babs) had quite an eye for style in her day. Walters is a face and name known by many, but it wasn’t until the age of 40 that she found herself on “The Today Show” writing and producing a Women’s Interest Stories segment. It was then her natural interview skills were discovered. Let’s be honest, at the age of 83 she can still interview like no other. After proving herself as a star anchor, she was then given more air time and eventually was the first woman to ever be known as a “co-host.” Way to go, Babs!!! She recently announced that in May of 2014 she will be retiring from ABC News and “The View,” but she hit the fashion nail on the head for those 52 years without a doubt.
The above photo really caught our attention. Not only was it almost unrecognizable, but the outfit is a classy look still in style to this day. A basic high neckline dress is a timeless go-to for any occasion from business casual to formal. Walters paired it with a statement necklace that really adds to the plain dress. Pair those with a simple bracelet and some teased hair and she is good to go.
Here is an updated and more colorful way to dress like Babs.
Pulling pieces from Barbara Walter’s style will leave you looking “20/20!“
