Donna Summer Style
Whenever I'm in a bad mood, one thing that perks me up is blasting my Donna Summer greatest hits while I'm driving.
There is something so deliciously catchy about her rhythmic pop beats and sultry voice that totally lifts my spirits. It makes me want to dance. It makes me want to sing. It makes me want to love to love you, baby.
Well, this stunning 70s glam queen is not just a disco legend, she's also one of the greatest fashion icons in history.
Her glittery, sexy stage costumes were breathtakingly fabulous.
She never failed to seduce your eyes with a single pose.
Her style represented an era besieged by flower-adorned hippies, funky disco cats, and fresh-faced American pie youth in faded blue jeans.
With Hollywood-esque beauty and superstardom in her grasp, she epitomized the changing world of pop music.
Her success is astounding. She has won five Grammy's. She was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach #1 on the US Billboard chart. She also had four #1 hits in the US within a 13 month period.
I'm not gonna lie, despite her glamorous and enviable life, Donna hasn't been without her own dramas. When she shot to fame in the 1970s, it caused the 20-something-year-old to spiral out of control. She grew extremely depressed and attempted suicide several times. In 1979, however, she became a born-again Christian, which appears to have saved her life.
Today she lives in Nashville with her husband. She has three daughters (one who is even a gorgeous model) and four grandchildren.
Below, I have created an outfit inspired by Donna Summer's style from the 1970s. Do you like it?
