Throwback Thursday: Donna Summer, Glam Disco Queen

Happy Throwback Thursday! We feel like dancing today, so let's all put on "Love to Love You Baby" and celebrate the unequivocal Queen of Disco and fabulous fashion icon, Donna Summer. Her title as the "Queen of Disco" wasn't just hype---in her heyday, no other artist (except maybe the Bee Gees) could touch Donna Summer. And no one, Bee Gees included, was nearly as glamorous. This shot from 1976 proves why club-goers and record-buyers were smitten with Summer: not only did she have a gorgeous, provocative... Read More

There are never too many ways to show Mom you care. So this Mother's Day, why not say "I love you" ... with your nails?

One that has zero kickbacks toward improving Earth or the many lives on it likely doesn't fall high on the Jolie-Pitt family list. 8. Tom Brady &... Read More
