Lady Looks From Decades Past

Over on Jezebel, they’ve been posting pictures from the Life (and Time) magazine photo archives featuring women from various decades. They started with the 1930s and have now reached the 1980s, my personal favorite. Looking back on Brooke Shields’ eyebrows (see left), the Golden Girls’ shoulder pads, and Jamie Lee Curtis’ swimsuit and pantyhose combo, I remember the ’80s like they were yesterday, but at the same time, the people in the pictures look like they’re from another planet. Really, Joan Rivers, really?!? And Patti Labelle? I don’t even have words to describe that hair. Only one image from the whole bunch made me miss those days: the picture of Madonna from 1984. Remember when she didn’t seem so scary? Come back, ’80s Madonna, all is forgiven!
