Ready for the ultimate Throwback Thursday? In honour of February’s Beauty Through The Decades theme we’re taking a look back over some of the trends embraced by the A-list in the 70s, 80s, and 90s – and which ones have stood the test of time!
Almost as iconic as the legend herself, it was all about embracing natural texture and va-va-volume for Diana Ross. From the fluffy ‘do of the 70s to her corkscrew curls of today, Ms. Ross proves that big hair never goes out of style.
As lead singer of Blondie, Debbie Harry was all about that glam-rock life. Shimmering lips and metallic smokey eyes were perfect for the ultimate 70s night out. Scared of glitter? Give it a try! Debbie Harry has continued to embrace the look with pretty pink shades, with a hint of sparkle, that complement her blue eyes.
The 80s were all about bold beauty trends but there’s one that’s seen a resurgence in the past few years – seriously big brows. Brooke Shields was the poster girl for big, bushy brows way before Cara Delevingne was on the scene – and she’s still rocking the power brow on red carpets today.
Never one to follow trends, Grace Jones has a distinct style that’s all her own. But, there’s no doubt, that she fully embraced the 80s obsession with excess. Bold lips or bold eyes? Why choose! Grace Jones embraces that defined lip and smokey eye as much today as she did back then. Talk about a beauty trademark.
The poster girl of 90s cool, Drew Barrymore was a pin-up for laidback grunge back back in the day. Rarely seen without a brick red lip, she was always our matte lip beauty inspiration. Today, she continues to embrace a pigmented pout but opts for more pink-toned, slightly glossier finishes.
When we think of iconic 90s hair we think of one person – Jennifer Aniston. Or, more importantly, her character Rachel from Friends. But, forget the layered Rachel cut, there’s one look that’s really stood the test of time – sleek, straight strands. Embraced by 90s supermodels, shiny, healthy hair is a look that’s totally timeless.
