’90s Page 1
It was only last week that Miley Cyrus ousted herself as a traitor to the pixie. But rather than switch things up with a Beyob, she’s come up with a solution that’s actually pretty – deep breath – stylish. Yep, we went there. Because of all the many things about Miley’s VMAs performance to have you questioning your faith in humanity, and all the many, many things we hope no member of humanity ever imitates ever, there was something we liked.
’90s fever is in the air, and the Styleite office has been infected hard. Our response to Rachel Bilson’s 90210 To Do List costumes was similar to how we react to baby animals, and ease of going to the bathroom isn’t really even a factor when it comes to our collective “all one-piece everything” resolutions.
Tomorrow night TLC, the holy trifecta of ‘90s girl pop that was sadly stolen away from us in 2002, will sort-of reunite to perform at Mixtape Festival at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. To fill in for the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the remain two TLC members, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chili” Thomas, have called upon 23-year-old Lil Mama. It’s clear Mama has some big, big neon parachute pants to fill.
There are some trends that never really ever go out of style, but simply cycle in and out of the current fashion landscape. Then there are the fads, the false-alarm trends, that may or may not stick. Here we’ve rounded up 5 of the most did-I-wear-that trends that we’re pretty positive will never, ever come back in style.
Yeah, we’re not kidding. You need a printed bra top. With the 90s fashion resurgence well upon us, it has become apparent that this is one trend essential that every girl needs to ride out the fashion wave.
Sure, giving a DVD box set or poster is great, but where’s the fun in that? Instead, gift your pop culture-obsessed friends something truly meaningful but, more importantly, hilarious. From the scorpion bomber jacket that
our boyfriend Ryan Gosling wore in Drive to a “Central Perk”-logoed coffee mug, we’ve got everything a pop culture fan would be proud to own.
Supermodels! Spice Girls! Fat Karl! MTV‘s legendary fashion show House Of Style is new, improved, and coming soon to a screen near you.
Yes, I was an 11-year-old makeup addict. And when I was a tween, lip products were like crack. Lip gloss, lipstick, lip tint — I probably had a minimum of three tubes of lip something on me at all times.
When the ’80s ended, people praised the end of shoulder pads and hammer pants forever — both of which have made strong sartorial comebacks. Some say for better, other say for worse. We won’t argue with those two trends. Instead, here is our list of 5 trends we miss and 5 trends we’re keeping our fingers crossed remain in fashion’s graveyard forever.
We have come to terms with the fact that Lady Gaga, our eternal idol, isn’t perfectly tolerant of some members of the press. In fact, she’s said to have spent most of her time at Thursday’s Mets vs. Padres game flipping her finger to photographers. But absent the bird-throwing, we must say that we kinda liked the ersatz grungy look the Lady adopted for the game. A flannel shirt, a leather jacket and a banadana-as-headband (and the studded bra from her video for Telephone) prove that no matter what she wears, Gaga always looks good.
You know those JC Penney commercials where Cindy Crawford is prancing around her house with her two adorable kids trying to sell her home decor line, Cindy Crawford Style? This month’s Harper’s Bazaar UK is a wake-up call for anyone who thought Crawford’s high-fashion days were done.
Once upon a time, the cover ladies of fashion’s most important and influential magazines were referred to as Supermodels. But with the advent of tabloids and the obsession with celebrity culture, fashion magazines steered away from model-covers and opted for actresses, musicians, and socialites instead. And then Kate Moss graced the cover of W’s September Issue, Linda Evangelista the cover of November, and now this month’s Vogue features a decidedly 90s-inspired Gisele Bundchen.
