Style Icon: Bianca Jagger

When I think of ultimate 70s glamour the first name that comes to mind is Bianca Jagger. 
How fierce was/is she!?  Below is a little history on Ms. Jagger...
 The Nicaraguan born beauty transformed styles tailored for men into her own innovative, scandalous, yet unique look that everyone emulated, or wanted to emulate. Her high-neck, backless halter tops with waist belts looked flawless and simple. Her style m.o., however, was more studied than most would know. "I didn't want to be discriminated against because of my gender and status," she once said. "I promised myself I was never going to be treated as a second-class citizen."
Bianca studied political science at the Paris Institute of Political Studies. And it was her French-speaking skills, combined with her brains and bravado that caught the eye of Rolling Stones lead singer, Mick Jagger, after one of his concerts. The two later married. Making her presence known as a regular at the famous New York nightclub Studio 54, her most talked about style consisted of buttoned down shirts with a loosely knotted tie; V-necks and three-piece suits complemented with black bowlers, canes, cigarettes and sunglasses. After the disco era, Bianca used her status to become a dedicated human rights activist in Nicaragua helping to fight human brutality and oppression.
Today, she remains active in advocating human rights, just as a strong, fearless and stylish Latina should.—Sofia Huertas Latina Magazine
