J.P. Annunziato's collection includes '80s toys, albums, movies, board games, school supplies, and popular books.
For years, fashion has nursed a fascination with the grunge of the ’90s and the retro glamour of the ’70s. So it should come as no surprise that the next “it” decade is perfectly sandwiched between those two. That’s right, the ’80s are back, whether you’re ready or not (or even if you haven’t fully recovered from the last ’80s revival).
Pussy Galore, Xenia Onatopp, Honey Rider, and Plenty O'Toole: Their names might be dodgy, but these women are the glamorous sidekicks to cinema’s most debonair killer — that’s 007 to you, Mr. Bond to the ladies. With Spectre, the new Bond movie starring Daniel Craig, opening this weekend, we’re taking a look back at our favorite Bond women of yesteryear. From Diana Rigg’s lace wedding jumpsuit, to Grace Jones’ Alaïa-designed ‘80s power wardrobe, to Ursula Andress’ iconic white bikini, we’ll show you how to channel their most alluring and kick-ass looks.
This week, American designer and marketing genius Ralph Lauren announced he is stepping down as CEO from his multi-billion dollar lifestyle empire. Lauren will continue to consult as the Chief Creative Officer, but the day to day operations will be taken over by Stefan Larsson, a 41 year-old executive who is credited for turning around Old Navy and H&M. While Lauren’s new role doesn’t mean the end of the brand, it seems like the perfect time to look back at how the designer reinvented American fashion but also created the aspirational American lifestyle— from preppy cotton shirts emblazoned with his iconic polo player to safari-themed furniture to clubby English-style restaurants. Here are some of the most iconic looks from Ralph Lauren.
If there’s anyone that knows what it was like to model in the 1980s — the really big hair, dangerous working conditions (aka posing with exotic animals), and shoulder pads — it’s Cindy Crawford. So the fact that the she’s the brains behind a new television show about the the industry during the era means it’s bound to be on point. According to Variety, the 49-year-old has partnered with NBC to make her producing debut with the tentatively titled series “Icon.” Actors Anne Heche and James Tupper will serve as executive producers. Ironically enough, Robin Bissell, the Hunger Games scribe, has signed on to pen the project, which seems to indicate that the show won’t hold back when it comes to backstage cat fights. But, while the rise of the supers including Brooke Shields, Christie Brinkley, Elle MacPherson, Carol Alt, and others is well documented, the entire show will reportedly be a fictionalized portrayal of their heyday, following the wars between Ford Modeling Agency and Elite Model Management.
