From Bianca Jagger's entrance on a white horse to Grace Jones' outlandish getups, Buro celebrates Studio 54's most iconic moments

Opened by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager this week in 1977, Studio 54 was a magnet of frenzied and fabulous activity for the world's A-list, fashionable elite. Club goers from Mick Jagger and David Bowie to Elizabeth Taylor and Any Warhol rubbed shoulders with film stars such as Jack Nicholson, Cher and Lauern Hutton. To use that nostalgic phrase, everyone who was anyone was there.

Though it closed in 1981 when the co-owners were found guilty of tax evasion, the clubs legacy as the pinnacle of 70s hedonism continues to inspire. Here, we look back over our favourite moments to celebrate the spirit of sex, drugs and scandalous seventies that Studio 54 stood for.
