Today is the 70th Birthday of Bianca Jagger. She wore a red off-the-shoulder Halston dress and rode a white horse into Studio 54 at her 30th birthday party. Why do people even bother to celebrate birthdays after that? I mean, please. With all her recent humanitarian work, the world is a better place that she is in it.

“Look at what President Kennedy managed to achieve during the Cuban missile crisis. If Bush had been president in 1962, do you think he would have avoided a nuclear war?” – Bianca Jagger
She was formerly married to Mick Jagger, lead singer of The Rolling Stones.
In addition to her extensive charitable works, Jagger had a public reputation as a jet-setter and party-goer in the 1970s and early 1980s, being closely associated in the public mind with New York City’s nightclub Studio 54. She also became known particularly as a friend of pop artist Andy Warhol.
