A look back at some of the most talented breakout stars through the years.
Fans were surely scared to take showers after seeing her terrifying scene in Psycho.
What's more glamorous than Hepburn in this black dress, cigarette holder placed elegantly in hand, jewelry dripping from her neck as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's? She can look put-together yet convey loneliness so perfectly.
Moreno won the Oscar for her breathtaking portrayal of Anita in West Side Story.
She proved her worth as the lead in Cleopatra, whose $1 million budget made it the most expensive movie of its time.

"Respect" ruled the Billboard charts in 1967, an anthem of womanhood and strength. And that's just one of the hits she released that year!
Giving new (or, come to think of it, old) meaning to the term "ride-or-die" couple, Dunaway starred with Warren Beatty in Bonnie and Clyde.
After starring as Fanny Brice on Broadway, Streisand took the role to Hollywood for the movie version of Funny Girl, belting "Don't Rain on My Parade" and earning an Oscar for her incredible performance.
Burnett is a comedy legend. Her classic program The Carol Burnett Show boasted its highest ratings in 1969.

Simon released "You're So Vain," one of the best revenge songs in the game (past or present), providing women everywhere with a great way to say "eff you" to their ex.

Summer kicked off her legacy as the "Queen of Disco" in '75, with the release of "Love to Love You Baby."

Seeing Keaton in that suit in Annie Hall is still a life-changing event for many young women trying to figure out their sense of style and self.
As Sandy in Grease she was the good-girl-next-door turned bad-boys-dream. Was the musical maybe an indictment of the way women have to change to accommodate men? LOL, no. But the songs were fun and Newton-John dazzled.
Streep won an Oscar for her gripping performance in Kramer vs. Kramer and also stole the show in Manhattan,as the woman smart enough to get away from Woody Allen.
