R.I.P Donna Summer: An Influence Not Just In Music But In Style..My Style Tribute

May 18, 2012

Unfortunately, there have been a number of people who we have lost this year who were icons in both the music and entertainment industries.

Just yesterday, we lost Donna Summer, who was the Mother of Disco.  Her hits have graced the radio airwaves, commercials and movies. Even though the disco era was way before my time and I wasn’t able to dance and party to her hits, I’m familiar because her songs have remained prevalent through the years. But not only was her music an influence on pop culture and other musicians, but her style was rather iconic, too.

How you ask?  Well, remember Marc Jacobs Summer 2011 collection where models were spotted with flowers in their hair?  The inspiration was Ms. Donna Summer.  And in 2010, Marc Jacobs enjoyed himself at a Louis Vuitton party in London singing on stage with Donna Summer as she sung one of her hits, On the Radio.

And there so many other trends that Donna Summer wore way before us, if not years before us..and they were:



Leopard Print

And remember how darn near everyone rocked the Head Wraps?  She wore them first…

Sheer? Donna Summer has been there and done that, too…

Floral Print and Bold Shoulders…she looked fab wearing the look before some of us were even born and while some were still toddlers!!

And while we’re just now loving Tangerine and Mint Green Hues for Spring/Summer 2012..she had already been loving the colors!

What great style!!
