In the March issue of V MAGAZINE (#64), we are treated to this colorful, graphic, 80’s-inspired style spread with two of fashion’s most famous faces.
From the press release:
Inspired by the famed hip-hop girl group Salt-n-Pepa, this 10-page fashion spread showcases the style that helped propel the female act to fame in the 80’s and 90’s.
No rules, no limits. Grandmistresses of flash Liya and Lily are taking cues from rap’s female greats for an explosion of prints, platforms, sequins, and crimped hair. Yo. Can you handle it?
So colorful. So nuts. And brimming with ideas for DIY – albeit requiring a little toning down.;-) Those yellow platform sneaks are reDUNKulous.
How do you guys respond to this? Is it bringing out the 80’s gal in you?
pu-push it real good. love this!
aah! love the pics! they bring back memories of my childhood, and the platforms kind of remind me of when the spicegirls made platform tennies cool in the 90s, my teen years lol. ohh memory lane, sometimes I'd rather not go there haha
I'm not a fan of 80s/early 90s fashion, but with this reinvention of it NOW, a lot of things make more sense to me of HOW they originally became popular, or what the appeal was. Just a year or two ago, it was all cheesy and antiquated, but now, it's THE thing that people are doing. Generations younger than me are looking at it and thinking “How cool” not “oh my god my MOM wore that!” or “oh my god my mom made ME wear that!!” haha
I survived the 80's and I don't remember ever looking this cool!
Love it! Really want the crimped hair in the first pic but know it wouldn't turn out without a stylist 🙂
Just found your blog for the first time and spent two hours on it during the middle of a very sunny Saturday (I'm in Australia hence the timezone difference). You've done very well to keep me from the beach, and I don't regret it one bit. Congrats x
