My sister Diana of Style recently won a contest in Polyvore. The theme of the contest is Dynasty-the show.
The glamorous 80s or the Dynasty look made a comeback and is very obvious in the latest creations of famous designers. Said to be gaudy, sassy and bold.
Costume jewelry, hats, shoulder pads, the bigger the shoulders the better. You name it! Gold lame, brocade, silk, satin and metallic fabrics. The chunkier the better. Maximalism is the thing of the 80s--a decade of confusion and excess.
Jackets are now again worn pushed or rolled up to reveal the fine lining to add contrast and soften the stiff, masculine and intimidating look of its tailoring.
The Louis Vuitton and the Chanel quilted bag with gold chain is an 80s sensation.
Here's a brand new music video from Aqua - Back to the 80s and Joan Collins Fashion Tribute video on Youtube (that I cannot embed), the latest videos on Runway2Reality TV.
