My favorites were Pandora (whom I'm thinking you're referring to as the blonde) and Jessica Wild myself. And - this says a lot about both Ru and Jessica, it took a lot of balls for Jessica to impersonate RuPaul on the "Snatch Game" and Ru not be upset with it.Originally Posted by Harvest;3887504;
Sheesh - they could've watched "Dynasty" to get a good idea of what '80s attire was - casual and dressy.My main comment about the finale, however, is not about the contestants but about the fact that 80s clothes were NEVER about a "tiny waist." Those ugly shoulder pad outfits were all so boxy and unflattering. It is more expensive to manufacture items with a waist, and they didn't ever do it. Think sack dresses with shoulder pads, yuck! (and later, harem pants, just as unflattering.) It wasn't until much later with the British version of What Not to Wear that there was ever even consciousness that those boxy shapes were not woman-friendly. The truth is the 80s style was androgynous. Whoever was trying to define the 80s style for the younger contestants got it wrong, wrong, wrong. Raven totally got it right, including the hair. Remember all the tragic perms? Too bad 80s style is coming back; it was hideous. Hopefully women will refuse to buy it.
Then there's (I think) leg warmers, stirrup pants, jelly shoes and bracelets (which I have seen a lot of lately) the big hair as you mention, apparently white eyeshadow (if Pamela Bellwood's overuse of it as Claudia says anything), punk styles, etc. It was a weird era for clothing.
