1977.  This La Coupe photo made US Vogue. They probably loved the earrings as much as the unruly naturally curly hair of this star performer.  There was a new-looking volume at the back and charming little wisps flirting on the forehead.   The earrings were by Niky, an award-winning Jewelry Designer, who created the super modern spray to fit over the ear with assorted-sized diamonds on 18 carat gold.
