A lot of the pictures of Studio 54 were taken by professional photographers who were hired to portray the club in all its glory. And no picture does that better than what looks to be the sweaty morning shave of Studio 54 Co-owner Steve Rubell. Have you ever seen anyone pull their cheeks that far back? Maybe it happens a lot in Hollywood, but we’ve never seen it done while shaving your face.
This picture perfectly captures the hedonistic spirit of the club and its founders. Rubell’s expression, combined with the early morning light and the excess of the night before, is a testament to the wild times that were had at Studio 54.
Living the Good Life
When you write hit songs like Y.M.C.A, Macho Man, In the Navy, and Go West, you best bet that you're never going to have a hard time getting into clubs like Studio 54, and you'll always be a hit with the ladies. Here we see band member Randy Jones posing with two very attractive ladies at the club like it's another day at the park.
In addition to their hit songs and partying at Studio 54, The Village People became cultural icons for their flamboyant and colorful outfits and their bold and daring lyrics, which challenged traditional gender roles and norms.
We've All Been There
Ever gone out to the club with your friends and found yourself knee-deep in a drunken karaoke rendition of your favorite song that no one seems to know or like? You are already off-the-stage, heaving in the bathroom, when you notice how badly you feel. We don't quite know the story behind this picture of 70s actresses and songwriters Carly Simon and Karen Black, but our guess is they were working the crowd much better than the average karaoke singer.
Carly Simon had multiple hit songs in the 1970s, including "You're So Vain," while Karen Black appeared in several musical films, such as "Nashville" and "The Great Gatsby." They were both also known for their free-spirited and unconventional personalities.
"Wanna Know A Secret?"
You can use many pickup lines when you are the president's son. You can walk into any club in the world and at the door just say, "hey, I'm the president's son. Can I come in? John F. Kennedy Jr. was living the dream back in 1977. As you can see, he had no problem charming the ladies. Heck, maybe he didn't even need to mention who his dad was.
It's hard not to wonder what life would have been like for JFK Jr. if he had not been tragically taken from the world at such a young age. Would he have continued to be a heartthrob, charming woman with his good looks and suave demeanor? Or would he have moved on to a career in politics like his father before him?
You can walk into any club and put on the moves with the ladies when you are a choreographer. It's probably even somewhat of a hobby. Of course, most women don't expect a man to be so good at dancing, and most men aren't. So imagine how surprised actress Jessica Lange was when "Chicago" choreographer Bob Fosse took her hand to dance. They both look like they are having the time of their life.
Bob Fosse was a choreographer, director, and filmmaker known for his unique style and signature dance moves. He was the man behind famous works such as "Cabaret," "Sweet Charity," and "All That Jazz," and it's no surprise that he could work his charm on the dance floor and sweep Jessica Lange off her feet.
