Icon Files: Bianca Jagger's '70s Glam

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Despite the saying, disco isn't dead -- far from it, in fact. Designers are revisiting the '70s, an era of so many questionable forays into fashion -- paisley polyester, anyone? -- and resuscitating only the most savvy sartorial moments. To pull off the trend without looking like an extra from "Saturday Night Fever," look to the iconic style of Bianca Jagger. Whether she was talking style with fashion designer Halston or tying the knot with Mick Jagger, the Nicaraguan actress and model was known for her effortlessly glamorous style. Jagger sported Grecian-style gowns, smartly tailored suits and decadent accessories -- all with the same level of panache. Pick from this array of right-now pieces to give your wardrobe that same stylish shot of glittery glam.
