Is not helmet hair, that's the flat hair after you remove a real motorcycle helmet.


Forum Ladies, get your rollers ready, here are the horror guides if you want to copy that style at home this weekend: The 50's hairstyles and the 60's big hair era
I agree with you, when they die I think the "kapsel" would continue to live on their own, they attract and dissappear any tiara on their vicinity like planets do with their satellites

That reminds me I saw a photo posted somewhere in the Princess Caroline section (maybe the thread on her jewels or outfits) where she is wearing some excessive earrings with bows hanging from them. Very 80's. Seems that was a decade of excess, like the styles in the series Dynasty big hair, big shoulders and over the top from head to shoes.

hmmm...i was thinking, maybe we could categorize the fashion disasters into these categories:

Royals:
-whose shoulders can stretch the entire length of the Camino de Santiago with their shoulderpads (kidding! )
-whose clothes can become secondary parachutes (super puffy sleeves!)
-whose hair is hairsprayed to death or (as Renee Zellwegger said in an interview with Oprah) the higher the hair, the closer to heaven!
-whose makeup resembles the 16-color Color Wheel (i hope no one gets into this category!)

up to it? or have you more categories? :)

for example: secondary parachutes

Oh and let us not forget the white nylons! They made everyone look as if they were going to nursing school. In the same vein, let's remember all the colored and/or printed nylons and socks that Diana had a hand in making so popular. I have to admit I had a pair of polka dot socks that I wore with capris and red flats Oh man! Thank heavens there aren't any pictures of that

Some day the clothes we wear today will look just as outrageous then as we think the 80's clothes do to us today. We all thought we looked great then.

looking back the clothes were pretty bad but at the time we couldn't get enough of the shoulder pads, white panty hose, flats, mullets, mall hair and lets not forget mutton sleeves.

I was born in the late 80s so I wasn't subject to all the fashion horrors but the early 90s weren't that pretty either.

crisinaki, I can't see the pictures you posted of the Infantas Elena and Cristina (they're just white boxes with red x's). And even though it pains me to say it, I want to see their 80s fashion disasters .
