Studio 54 Photos: What was it like?

Studio 54 is a shadow of its former self. What is now a Broadway theater used to be the emblematic hot spot of ‘70s disco nightlife. Then a nightclub, Studio 54 opened its doors to A-list stars like Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Cher, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones and so many more.

The club stood as a symbol for the extravagance of the ‘70s disco scene, lest we forget when Mick Jagger’s (now ex-) wife Bianca memorably entered the discotheque on horseback for her 1977 birthday bash (above). Check out a gallery of some of the fiercest fashion moments from the club’s heyday.
