Karaoke nights aren't a hit (in my opinion) unless someone puts in a request for a Donna Summer record. The "Queen of Disco" has a catalog that will get even the shyest of spectators out of their seats and reaching for a microphone. However, Summer's legacy goes way beyond shoulder-moving numbers, including "Love to Love You Baby," "Bad Girls" and "Last Dance."

The five-time Grammy award winner's flashy fashions, bouncy curls and bright, red lips are imprinted upon our memories. She proved that it was possible to be both sexy and sophisticated -- accentuating her soaring voice with just the right amount of cleavage or leg.

In celebration of what would've been Summer's 64th birthday on Dec. 31, we're taking a look back at the late singer's glamorous style over the years. Vote for your favorite look in the slideshow below.
