Bianca Jagger

Bianca Jagger married Mick, befriended Warhol, served as muse to Halston, and famously rode in on a white horse to her birthday party at Studio 54. How can you not love this woman? Her wardrobe also defined the glitz and glamour of the disco days better than anyone's.
This photo was taken in 1978, and yet it feels like it could have been last night, doesn't it? The one-shoulder dress, the patterned tights, the animal print clutch, and her loose waves all scream glamour girl. Jagger was the queen of getting all dolled up but managing not to look like she gave a damn--even in a red satin evening gown and full length fur, she had an air of "this old thing?" about her.
 Jagger also worked the menswear look like nobody's business, marrying Mick in Saint Tropez in a very revealing Yves Saint Laurent blazer and reprising the suit look plenty of times in her disco days. Here she's snapped at Studio 54 by the original paparazzo king, Ron Galella, wearing a tailored jacket and pants, a ribbon tie, and a pair of shearling boots!
At her marriage to Mick Jagger in 1971 in St Tropez. Along with those of Grace Kelly and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Bianca's is one of the most famous wedding outfits ever.
 Bianca Jagger, wearing a white three-piece suit, black bowler hat and carrying a cane, must have turned a few heads walking through Heathrow Airport in 1972. 
 Celebrating her birthday in New York in July 1980 with Halston, (under the watchful gaze of her portrait by Andy Warhol), Jagger wore a white, grecian-style gown and metallic heels. 
 As the wife of one of the world's most prolific rock stars, Bianca Jagger knew how to look chic even while in a muddy field: at the Bardney pop festival in Lincolnshire in 1972, she sported jeans with lace-up snakeskin boots, a black blazer, white shirt, and a wool cape. 
 At Studio 54's first Anniversary party in 1978 with designer Halston, Liza Minnelli and her husband, Jack Haley Jr. Jagger's hooded dress (by Halston) has echoes of Marc Jacob's autumn/winter 08 collection.
