With his new Netflix series “Halston,” Ryan Murphy is taking fashion fans back to Studio 54.

On Friday — which would’ve been the late design legend’s 89th birthday — the streaming service shared the first photos of the cast, and announced that the Murphy-produced show will premiere on May 14.

Ewan McGregor stars as Indiana-born Roy Halston Frowick, whose minimalist yet luxe cashmere and ultra-suede creations were “synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame” in the 1970s.

The designer, who died of AIDS complications in 1990 at the age of 57, was as famous for his hard-partying lifestyle and coterie of famous friends as for his fashions.

And viewers will see plenty of those pals represented onscreen, with Krysta Rodriguez playing Liza Minnelli, Rebecca Dayan as Tiffany & Co. designer Elsa Peretti and Rory Culkin as director Joel Schumacher, to name but a few.
