'Full House' Flashback: Check Out Candace Cameron Bure's Cheesy Christmas Pic
"Full House" is having such a moment right now that you'd think this was the vintage show getting rebooted. John Stamos joined "Necessary Roughness," admitted that Lori Loughlin was "the one who got away," and stole the show from Bob Saget at Bonnaroo. Uncle Jesse is one busy man! Saget is also feeling the tug of "Full House." He "couldn't resist" having his picture taken in front of the "Full House" home while visiting San Francisco.
But the the best "House" revival so far is courtesy of DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) and Kimmy Gibbler (aka Andrea Barber). Both girls shared the above photo that harks back to a time when Young Hollywood was not about Coachella, skinny jeans, and eyeliner. Seasons greetings from cheesy pop, toothy grins, and high necklines.

From left to right, we have DJ Tanner's "Full House" BFF Kimmy, Ben Seaver of "Growing Pains" (Jeremy Miller), Urkel from "Family Matters" (Jaleel White), and, of course, DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure).
Cameron Bure couldn't help but compare her gang with today's teen idols: "Young Hollywood 1990's. No stylist or high heels. Instead: baggie clothes pimples & healthy weight. What a concept 2 show our teens today!"
"TGIF, people. Hollywood Xmas Parade, 1991. @candacecbure @jaleelwhite," read Barber's caption.
Barber kept the party going with this glorious shot of two totally blasé and uncheesy, cooler-than-thou supermodels just low-key hanging out and being cool in DJ's bedroom:
Barber asked the important question: "I do not understand why @candacecbure and I weren't fashion icons of our era!" No duh!
Indeed, it's hard to picture anyone famous now being so openly happy and hammy, so ... bop-a-licious. These girls would blush at the poster for "Spring Breakers," whereas we can't even picture Vanessa Hudgens in a fuzzy green sweater, especially at Christmastime. If Zac Efron wore that scarf, it would be shredded and tied around his head as a bandana or something. And can you picture Selena Gomez with uncoiffed, unconditioned curls gone wild? One more: Justin Bieber in earnest Gap argyle.[Photos: 'Full House': Where Are They Now?]
There is no question that Young Hollywood today is cooler, skinnier, and, in a sad way, more self-conscious. It's not like it's anyone's fault. The world today contains a zillion paparazzi and almost as many social networking sites on which celebrities share (or don't share) their every little move. It's also important to note that Young Hollywood back then wasn't all ice cream sundaes and innocent grins. RIP, River Phoenix.
