Who has not dreamed of being a rock star at one point or another? For Donna Summer, Guns N' Roses, and Joan Jett this dream is a reality. All three have solidified their names as rock gods with nominations for the 2011 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
These musicians epitomized style in the 1970s and 1980s; and have proved themselves to be muses for some Spring 2012 looks.
The Spring 2012 runways not only displayed pieces reminiscent of the two decades but also featured that extra something that only a true rock star has (hint: sequins).
Who can think of disco without thinking of Donna Summer? The melodious beauty epitomized 70s glamour with glimmering dresses, feathers, and chunky accessories.
At Milan Fashion Week, Roberto Cavalli modernized disco with his dazzling collection, complete with cut-out dresses, neon colors, and sequined everything.
Back in the 1980s Axl Rose showed the world how the Americana rebel look was done. Pairing bandanas with leather jackets and American flag prints, he was the poster child for cool.
Axl Rose's style could be seen on the runway at the DSquared² show. Rose would approve of the American flag prints, denim, and fringe.
Joan Jett was the rock princess as the lead singer of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. The band is best known for its hit single I Love Rock 'n' Roll. But Jett's style made her a stand out. Her wardrobe staple color of black blurred the boundaries between punk and rock.
Alexander Wang's 2012 collection focuses on the urban, tough vibe given off by motorcross-inspired looks. Biker babes walked down the runway in outfits similar to Jett's personal fashion preferences. The front row saw lots of black, lots of zippers, and lots of edge.
Congratulations to these rock legends. May their music and their style live on.
