No one can deny that The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which dominated TV from 1970 to 1977, was ahead of its time. It was pre-Jezebel, pre-Sex and the City, pre-Girls. Not only was the show a shining example of how women could dominate their careers in business, Moore had a look all her own while doing so. Naturally, she had a major part in shaping the way us North American business women dressed.

We loved Moore’s boundary-pushing fashion on screen–the pussybows, the big collars, the pant suits and the belted waists–as well as her equally as impressive off-screen style. From intricate sequin gowns on major red carpets to laid-back off-duty looks, the actress always managed to make fashion seem effortless.

Fashion runways present day are still paying homage to Moore’s ’70s looks, with designers like Zac Posen and Michael Kors attributing the late actress’ style to their more current collections. “She showed us all what a modern woman looked like—smart, talented, funny, stylish at work and at home,” Kors told The Hollywood Reporter. “When I was growing up, there was nobody else like her.”

Take a look back at some of our favourite looks the iconic actress wore over her lifetime both in character and IRL.
