RIP Donna Summer: Remembering the Disco Queen's Awesome Style
Donna Summer, the beloved singer known as the Queen of Disco, passed away at her home in Key West, Florida this morning at the age of 63. One of the undisputed icons of the 1970s disco era, Donna's singles "Hot Stuff," "She Works Hard for the Money" and "Love to Love You" are still dance-floor favorites around the world.
In addition to her incredible impact on the music world, Donna was just as well known for her wacky and wonderful costumes and styling choices. An unabashed fan of glitter, sequins, spandex and marabou feathers, the five-time Grammy winner certainly appreciated the power of a little sartorial drama. Click through the gallery to take a look back at some of her finest onstage moments, plus some pieces inspired by her fun and fearless wardrobe. Donna, we still love to love you, baby.
