 Liza Minnelli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Minnelli, a Triple Crown Winner (having won Oscar, Tony and Emmy), has the distinction of being one of the few Academy Award winners whose parents were both Academy Award nominees, and she is the only winner of that award whose parents were both winners of it as well.
Minnelli's work in Cabaret molded her popular image, from the fl helmet of hair and extravagant eyelashes that have remained her visual trademark to the perception among many that she shares Sally Bowles's combination of fragility and toughness, her hunger for affection, and her heedless detachment from the ordinary.
Minnelli was very close friends with her favorite fashion designer, the late Halston, who not only designed her outfits for her award-winning special "Liza With A 'Z'" but for other shows and events as well.
