It would be a combination of seductively sweet vocals, high octane glamour, and a flashy ‘70s-era swagger that would spawn the Queen of Disco, better known as Donna Summer. The songstress–born LaDonna Adrian Gaines on December 31st, 1948–began exercising her voice at the age of 10 in her local church choir. After working her way up to live stage productions, her theatrics eventually translated to Summer’s persona as the mother of dance music. With hits like “Hot Stuff” and “I Feel Love,” Summer’s sound changed pop culture forever, inspiring a future of music heavyweights like Beyoncé and Madonna. However, Summer’s image was equally as captivating as her music, presenting a wide range of looks that cemented her status as a fashion icon. Summer, who passed away eight years ago today at the age of 63, left behind a long-lasting legacy of beloved sounds and definitive ‘70s style that continues to reinvent itself in modern trends. CR honors the legacy of the disco diva with a look back at her timeless style.
