The 80s: Fashion Disasters
 
Hi, I thought it would be funny to open a thread about the 80's fashion, which was incredibly awful, the worst years for fashion to date and how it affected our beloved royals who always have to be on the top of everything

I'll start with Infanta Cristina:

Normally I love Princess Diana, but the 80s were not kind to her at all...

Her dress in pic number 3 was the definition of AWFUL!:eek:
you would think she got lazy that day and just put pantyhose and heels under her robe just after she got up from bed!:eek::eek:

I love the 80's! Bad fashion, hair and all. Nothing can top it in my book.

I don't mean to sound stupid, but why don't you like the tan suit that Diana is wearing? I know some people did not like the big hair, etc. but I thought this outfit was pretty elegant!
I do NOT like the blue dress that ended at her knees. The top is really pretty but then something bad happened! And the gloves are a disaster too!
I love Princess Di, but when she got it wrong, she usually went ALL out and got everything wrong!

Heidi gone bad!:eek::D:D:D

Ahhh the 80s- Big Shoulder Pads, Crimped hair, Large hair, heavy makeup, etc.
Don't forget that the 80s spilled over to a few years of the early 90s.

The tan outfit Diana is wearing isn't too bad (except the shoulder pads :eek:).

margotantoinette 05-12-2006 12:07 AM

I just really don't like the white front to the outfit...that combined with the shoulder pads just made me shudder. But its definitely one of the more mild of Di's 80s offenses!

Lady Jean 05-12-2006 12:09 AM

Some of Diana's polka-dot outfits from the 80's are, um, interesting.

She should have saved it for the 90's to throw over the John Galliano nightgown / slipdress!

The irony of that awful robe is that Diana actually wore it to a London Fashion Week reception.

It is important to remember that these pictures were taken in the 80s, were fashion sense was totally different from nowdays. There are many of these dresses or hairdos that were in during that time. So judging them based on our tastes that is influenced on today's fashion styles is not possible. We can read magazines of those times and see what they thought it was a disaster or not, so we can compare.

HRH Kerry 05-12-2006 07:19 AM

So true Ariel!

I had a red outfit similiar to the one Diana is wearing in pic #2. The 80s were about dressing in fads. Does anyone have a pic of any royals sporting legwarmers?:eek:

Maxie 05-12-2006 07:41 AM

Hahaha, this thread is hilarious! The 80's were terrible. I'm going to look for some Beatrix pics. She really was a walking disaster back then...

Maxie 05-12-2006 07:53 AM

Okay, four pics from ANP. Just pay attention to the last one (sorry, wasn't able to find a close up...): those sleeves. I can't get over them. :eek: And the make-up in the first one. Aaaargh...
