70′s Style IconsPosted by Styloko
The spirit of the ’70s is still alive and has been hitting the runways for a few seasons, but this spring/summer, that decade’s vibe is playing a huge role almost everywhere, from runways to high street retailers.
The seventies saw the emergence of flared trousers, oversized hats, white pant suits and big hairstyles. We chose five of the most popular icons of that decade whose sense of style and personalities are a mine of inspirations for us. Their influences seem to be still alive in this season’s collections.
First wife of Rolling Stone lead singer Mick Jagger, Bianca is still one of the most recognised fashion icons of the ’70s. Known for being Halston’s muse at one point. On her 30th birthday, she arrived at the iconic New York nightclub Studio 54 on a white horse. Bianca Jagger is also known for her campaigning for women’s and environmental rights, and has also been Goodwill Ambassador.

In the 1970s, Anjelica Huston was the quintessential fashion it-girl. Another Halston muse (pictured being fitted for a dress by him below), she starred in his ad campaigns, runway shows and was a great ambassador for his style, always wearing his dresses. Over the years, she became a well-respected actress and director but we can still look back at her ’70s style for fashion inspiration today.

Propelled to fame by iconic 1970s TV series Charlie’s Angels, Farrah Fawcett was the all-American girl. Her hairstyle was probably the most representative of that decade. Her style morphed easily from boho girl to city chic and she epitomised the best of 1970s style.

Best known as the lead singer of New Wave band Blondie, Debbie Harry was cool and understated. While her look was partly copied from Marily Monroe, she brought her own brand of cool style, becoming a role model on many levels for women of that era. While she reached the height of her fame in the ’80s, it was the previous decade that shaped her style sensibility.

We can’t talk about seventies style icons and not mention Faye Dunaway. This Oscar-winning actress was the epitome of understated cool. From maxi dresses to pant-suits, she brought her natural, laid-back style to everything she threw on.
