Rare photos of Googoosh

This early career in doing imitations helped her greatly when she became a full-fledged adult star and perfected the art of taking what is Western or foreign and making it her own. Despite all the copying that went on, Googoosh miraculously remained Googoosh both in sound and in look. With the growing importance of television and the advent of glossy magazines, her uncanny grasp of the importance of her image along with her ability to co-opt Western music made Googoosh appealing to the masses.
