Inspiration | Donna Summer, Disco Queen

We pay tribute to the beauty of disco queen Donna Summer, who passed away on May 17, 2012.

Donna Summer passed away on May 17. People called her the First Lady of Love and the black Marilyn Monroe. The first women to have back-to-back, multi-platinum albums, she was the undisputed queen of the Seventies disco boom.

Her beauty look was quintessentially 70s, with full curls, metallic eyeshadow swept high onto the brow bone, heavy contouring and brick red lips. Look at the Marc Jacobs S/S 11 collection for a modern take on disco makeup.
