Dolly Parton might have been the reason that there was a white horse at Studio 54, but it was actually Bianca Jagger who made the horse famous. The Studio 54 owner at the time, Steve Rubell, arranged the horse at the club in hopes of impressing the queen of country music.
Yes, Dolly loved the stunning white horse, but apparently, this was not the only animal to wander around the club on that night. Reportedly, the night was filled with mules and chickens present on the dancefloor. As much as it was a NYC nightclub, it still managed to host a strong flair of country on some nights.
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.
Michael Jackson and Woody Allen Partying It Up
Now, this is a rare sighting: a big-time pop star seated next to the cerebral and introverted filmmaker Woody Allen in a nightclub. But as we have already seen, anything was possible at Studio 54 back in the day. This photo was taken in the summer of 1977 at a Carter Burden party, which was hosted at NYC's most loved club at the time.
It seems that the nightclub's strict and fancy dress code was forgotten when Woody entered the doors. The best part of all was that Woody was the host of this iconic evening. If anything, this picture just shows how inclusive this nightclub was in the 1970s.
Curtis Mayfield's Soulful Appearance
The legend Curtis Mayfield was another music star to grace the floors of Studio 54. Mayfield was the soul and funk 'it' guy in the 70s and is best known for getting to cover the full soundtrack of the cult classic "Super Fly," which aired in the early 70s.
It's clear that he was having a blast of a night if you look at the massive smile on his face as he posed for this picture in 1977. But it's certain that the Studio 54 club-goers had an even bigger blast of a night on this particular evening that Mayfield joined.
Jerry Hall Adding a Touch of Elegance
Like a lot of stars from the 70s era, Jerry Hall also liked to frequent NYC's Studio 54. The model and actress was making waves in the show biz industry in the 70s and was often spotted strolling around the clubs with male celebrities flocking around her. She always made sure to wear something that showed off her fabulous figure.
Her 70s attire did not leave much to the imagination. Bodysuits, lace and sheer all used to be a common choice for the supermodel to parade around in. That lush head of hair and her air of confidence was more than enough to finish off her outfit elegantly. When Hall was present, the vibe was always better.
