Never again, will a nightclub be quite so glamorous as Studio 54. Regular faces at the iconic celebrity haunt included the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, David Bowie, Diana Ross and Elton John to name a few, so it's no wonder that the club was home to some of the most memorable night-out fashion moments of the 1970s.

What is Studio 54?

Disco, dancing and decadence was all the rage over on Manhattan's 54th street. Launched in 1977, Studio 54 has become one of the most famous nightclubs of all time. Although the legendary New York venue was only open for a total of 33 months, clearly star-studded guest lists, fascinating entry policies and rampant partying has left a lasting impression.

While the club imposed no specific dress code, the vibe was 'avant-garde-glitz meets sexy silhouettes'. The only resolute sartorial no-no? If you rocked up in a polyester shirt you would have been turned away because of the fabric's tendency to melt under the lights, according to former Studio 54 security staff. Things got pretty steamy inside the legendary club's doors, that's for sure. 

Hello! Fashion shares Studio 54's best fashion moments and how to get the look:

Bianca rocked the night's must-have accessories: two white doves 

The Nicaraguan actress' marriage to Mick Jagger didn't quite last the decade, but her ingénue in-white look will live on forever. Bianca totally casually balanced white doves on her palms while sporting a white off-the-shoulder lace ballgown by Emanuel. The husband-wife designer duo would later go on to design Princess Diana's 1981 royal wedding dress just a few years later.

Jerry Hall and a chainmail dress go hand in hand 

The model skyrocketed to the top during the 1970s, wearing some incredible outfits that came to define the decade's fashion scene. Here she is pictured wearing a shimmery chainmail sleeveless dress, alongside Barbara Carrera, George Willig and Buy Burgos to attend the "A Salute to American Designers" party in 1978.

Cher's energy is the vibe we want from every night out 

There's literally nothing about this look that we don't absolutely love. First of all, it's Cher, so there's that, but from the jaunty hat and the open white shirt, down to the mules and straight-leg jeans, we just can't get enough.

Patterned tights are still utterly relevant in 2023 

Esteemed Belgian fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg certainly knew a thing or two about party dressing back in the 1970s. Seated next to Cedric Lopez and Vogue hair stylist Ara Gallant, she looks unbelievably chic in sheer tights and black pumps at the launch event for her then-husband Prince Egon von Fürstenberg's book, The Power Look.

Is there a greater dance partner than legend Liza Minnelli? We think not. Rock a white flowy jumpsuit to channel your inner Hollywood star.

Jules Dreyfus rocked a dazzling jacket 

Robert Kennedy Jr.'s model fiancée Jules Dreyfus was all about the monochrome moment, opting for a glitzy black sequin jacket, patterned top and high-wasted trousers. Plus, the beanie? Totally inspired.
