Rainbow bright: Ann wears a special TODAY anniversary dress

Jan. 13, 2012 at 9:50 AM ET

Natalie, Al, Ann and Matt and team celebrate 60 years of TODAY.

The plaza isn't the only thing dressed up for TODAY's 60th anniversary: even the talent's wardrobe got a birthday makeover! Ann wore a bright, TODAY-themed rainbow dress — custom-designed by Lisa Perry — to help ring in the festivities in style. (When it comes to celebrating, we're certainly not subtle.)

Ann gets in the spirit with a special TODAY-themed dress.

Ann follows a long TODAY tradition of appreciating fashion. As we celebrate this landmark TV event, take a look back to the style of yore. Check out this great video from  Aug. 29, 1956, in which TODAY’s Helen O’Connell shows Dave Garroway which silhouettes for women, from two of America’s top fashion houses, were going to be popular that fall.
