So…the year 2010 has come and my friends and I are finally turning 21. We all mysteriously have winter birthdays, so this is going to be one crazy quarter. Carly was the first…
Isn’t her dress pretty? Too bad she’ll never wear it again. Oh well, that’s Forever 21 is for, right?
So this brings me to my next point…My party. Of course, it must have a theme. What party is a real party if it doesn’t have a theme? My theme shall be:
I am so goddamn excited about it. Don’t even ask me what I’m going to wear yet…but I must tell you this: I am hoping to find some roller skates. I don’t know how well that’s going to fare in my mostly carpeted apartment, but we shall see…However this party is not until mid-February, so you will have to wait in anxious anticipation to see me in sequin hotpants and a halter top.
I’ve been looking for some good disco pictures are the Information Superhighway, but it hasn’t been going well so far. I only know of three fierce females from the 70’s: Bianca Jagger (isn’t that the coolest name?), Donna Summer, and Farrah Fawcett. Regardless of my issues, here’s some inspiration pictures to get you excited:
The Pointer Sisters: What I hope my friends look like
Jerry Hall and Debbie Harry looking gorg
My girl crush, Julianne Moore, in Boogie Nights, which was the inspiration for this whole disco party. Clearly, I need to get some extra large hoop earrings. I’ll have to take a lot of inspiration from her character in this movie since, alas, I am a ginger.
Donna Summer. Holy shit. How does your hair look that good? Please don’t tell me it’s a weave. How would I ever live up to that?
Let me tell you what Wikipedia says about this awesome picture of Bianca riding a horse: “A week after the opening [of Studio 54], Halston asked Rubell to open the nightclub on a Monday night (May 2, 1977, when it would have been closed) for Bianca Jagger‘s 32nd birthday party. Bianca entered on a white horse and the resulting publicity firmly established Studio 54 as the preferred nightclub for celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Rudolf Nureyev, Elton John, Truman Capote, Margaret Trudeau, John Travolta, Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Björn Borg, Gloria Swanson, Mae West, Farrah Fawcett, Telly Savalas, Salvador Dali, Olivia Newton-John, Cher, Muhammad Ali, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Lorna Luft, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Divine, Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper, Suzanne Somers, Bette Davis, Al Pacino, Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor, Bette Midler, Ann-Margret, Dolly Parton, Pelé, Hugh Hefner, Sophia Loren, Diane von Fürstenberg, Gloria Vanderbilt took her 10 year old son Anderson Cooper, John F. Kennedy Jr., Princess Grace, Prince Albert, Eartha Kitt, Vladimir Horowitz, Rev. Sun Myung Moon, Moshe Dayan, Fred Astaire, Christie Brinkley, Grace Jones, Diana Ross, Barry Diller, Betty Ford, Rudolf Nureyev, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lillian Carter, then-president Jimmy Carter‘s mother.”
For serious? This was one huge cocaine-fueled party? The president’s mom was there? I guess I never really realized how awesome the 70’s were because I’ve been so obsessed with…every other recent decade. But now I’m excited to do some research and get down to the bottom of this 70’s business.
P.S. Do not doubt my abilities to make my hair big. I can do it, and if you don’t believe me, look at this post from my earlier days of blogging.
If you know of any 70’s hotties that I should be aware of, please let me know. In the meantime, I will just be obsessing over how gorgeous Bianca Jagger is (was?)
