style icon: bianca jagger

Gorgeous... This woman is absolutely fierce. Since you lovelies enjoyed my 1970s fashion post so much, I thought I'd photo profile one of the most iconic fashionistas of the 1970s -- Bianca Jagger.

Born to a privileged Nicaraguan family, Bianca was part of the jetset Studio 54 crowd that included the likes of Halston, Andy Warhol, Yves Saint Laurent and of course, Mick Jagger. Our hats off to you Ms. Jagger. Your daring and unapologetic sense of style helped define fashion not only in the 70s, but for decades to come.

She wore hooded silk jumpsuits like nobody's business.

In her trademark white YSL suit and a bowler hat in Heathrow Airport in 1972.

The iconic white suit was so much a part of her fashion repertoire that she dared to wear it on her wedding day in San Tropez. Unconventional indeed.

In a grecian gown with good friend Halston.

Again with Halston. Gold lame never looked so fabulous.

On her 30th birthday celebration at Studio 54. Of course, Bianca would arrive on a white horse. Why not? It was her party after all.

With husband and lead singer of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger.

Gorgeous cheekbones. Bianca's exotic good looks definitely helped set her apart from the rest of the crowd.
