The craze for 80s style is reaching epic proportions nationwide. With the recent launch of the Stephen Sprouse book by the Padilha brothers of MAO public relations in Los Angeles,
the frenzy has officially gone coast to coast. For those of us who were
old enough to live through that particular decade in fashion properly,
everything old is new again. Witness Nicole Ritchie’s BlackBook cover homage to Teri Toye, the world first openly transgendered model, who is also rumored to be the inspiration for Lady Gaga’s “signature” look.
If straight blond hair with blunt bangs doesn’t work for you and you
still want to unleash your inner 80’s goddess, opt for space goggle
sunglasses, the new oversize Jimmy Choo’s are perfect to add a dash of 80s over-the-top to any hairstyle or color.
If the Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse leggings are too 80’s pop art for you, go the acid wash route with companies like Cheap Monday, ACNE, and Nolita. If you’re more a dress girl, Jordi Scott’s Spring 09 collection had some great options for rocker-inspired fashions with a dash of 80’s pop color.
