Despite the dance floors of Studio 54 mostly roamed by single A-listers, there was a time when Robin Williams had a night out there with his wife. The pair were spotted embracing one another on the dance floor, and just looked like they wanted to have a great time in each other’s company.
The two’s partnership lasted a long time after this night out, and they even welcomed their first son three years after the club closed its doors for good. Clearly, Robin Williams’s night out with his wife was more about having a jolly good time than being seen by the club-goers, and we absolutely love that.
Michael Jackson Moonwalking Into Studio 54
Before Michael Jackson (MJ) moonwalked himself across stages around the world, he moonwalked through the doors of Studio 54. In the years preceding MJ's superstar status, he'd put on his best clubbing apparel, and he would spend the whole night dancing away, ripping things apart on the dance floor.
While he was breaking things down on Studio 54's dance floor, he had no idea what the coming years had in store for him. Little did he know that his appearance in the nightlife scenes of New York would change his world and everyone else's, too. It's no surprise that the future king of pop would frequent one of America's most popular disco spots at the time. The dance moves that he would whip out captured everyone in the club's attention, including celebrities like Steve Tyler, who is posing with him in this picture.
Bianca Jagger Sports Her Doves
Bianca Jagger seems to have spent a whole bunch of her evenings at Studio 54 back in the good old days. Besides bringing along her white horse that one time, she also sported a pair of her doves one evening. Allegedly, the doves were part of her Grecian outfit. She wore a golden crown and had the two doves perched on her hands to finish off this outrageous look.
Definitely a bold look that most women wouldn't dare to try. There was, however, a meaning behind her outfit. When Steve Rubell, the club owner, decided to play bouncer for the evening, he only let the best of the best outfits in, so of course, Bianca scored herself a guaranteed entry with this eccentric look.
Diana Ross Giving the DJ Booth a Try
Diana Ross was another star to frequent Studio 54. She loved the chill vibe of the club, and even though she is pictured here while taking charge of the DJ booth of the club, she was also known to break things down on the dancefloor. She even attended the club's final closing party in the early 80s.
On that particular night, she serenaded the whole club one last time as she embraced the nonchalant energy that the club stood for. She then proceeded to dance the whole night away, and there's no doubt that she lit that dancefloor up on the club's last night of existence.
Bianca Jagger and Her Four-Legged Friend
Studio 54 somehow always managed to go one step further when it came to absurd evenings out. It was almost as if dancing and disco-ing were not enough. If you wanted to enter its doors, the bouncers would first evaluate your outfit and general vibe to determine if you could enter for the evening.
A lot of people were not cool enough and turned away, but exceptions were always made for a four-legged friend: a horse. This picture captured Mick Jagger's wife at the time, Bianca Jagger, as she was mounted on a beautiful white beast in her evening attire. There's not much more to say here except that Bianca knew perfectly well how to make a spectacular entrance.
