#TBT Barbra Streisand’s Most Fabulous Vintage Photos

Barbra Streisand kicked off her nine-city tour this week, breaking a 4-year concert hiatus and taking to the stage in Babs-like epic proportions. She belted out “Papa, Can You Hear Me,” brought out Jamie Foxx for a duet and leveled many colorful digs at Donald Trump.

In celebration of the 74-year-old legend’s return, we’re throwing back to our very favorite vintage pictures of the singer(no, really, who could forget that sequined Oscars outfit?) Welcome back, Babs! We missed you.
