30 Fabulous Photos Show Styles of Pia Zadora in the 1970s and ’80s

Born 1954 in Hoboken, New Jersey, American actress and singer Pia Zadora worked as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater, and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964). She came to national attention in 1981 when, following her starring role in the highly criticized Butterfly, she won a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year while simultaneously winning the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress and the Worst New Star for the same performance.

When in the 1980s, Zadora’s film career failed to achieve critical success, she switched her focus to music. As a singer, she has released several albums featuring popular standards, often backed by a symphonic orchestra. She was nominated for a Grammy in 1984.

Since 2013, Zadora has hosted and performed Pia’s Place at Las Vegas restaurant Piero’s Italian Cuisine. Take a look at these fabulous portraits of a young Pia Zadora in the 1970s and 1980s.
