Blogmas 2019 – Through The Decades With POSH, part 2/4
2010s are ending and within a month we welcome the new decade of 2020s to begin. But before that in this year's blogmas and in celebration of the new decade we are not going to even look at Christmas derocation, present ideas nor recepies but our favorite fashion eras in the previous century. What's more, to keep this Blogmas exciting we are not going to start from the beginning or end in the ending but go through some of the fashion decades in a totally random order. I am also turning "Posh blog" temporarily into a century defining "Posh magazine" that glances through times with a help of some fun cover shoots as well as outfits to remember. Are you ready to go through the decades with Posh?
POSH GOES TO THE 80S...
Popular culture's golden age starts from the 80s when MTV was born and cable TVs became household necessities. Movies, music and fashion had never been so global, celebrities so famous and mass unemployment so high. Yet people wanted all the glamour. Basicly, the less you had the louder you wanted to be. The bigger and bolder you were the cooler you appeared. Especially, in Britain this was all a response to the poor economic situation, an escape from the grey reality to a colorful, rich and fabulous Blitz night club that had a dress code more extravagant than any other place in the world.
80s was the decade of block colors, big hair, dramatic makeup, power dressing and The New Romantics which designers from Westwood to Donna Karan perfected, defined and invented. But most of all it was a time of icons and royals of all kind. Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Boy George and Princes Diana alike set trend after trend in sequins, lace, shoulder pads and hairdos that till to this day are recognised world wide. In short, 80s was the era of wild dressing, feverish excess, acid wash denim, Nike Air Jordans and overload of fuchsia eye shadow.
AN EDITORIAL PHOTOSHOOT IN THE 1980S HAS NOTHING SUBTLE ABOUT IT. YOU EITHER GIVE IT YOU ALL OR YOU MAKE WAY FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS MORE EXTRAORDINARY AND MORE FABULOUS LOOKS. OBVIOUSLY, POSH IS GOING TO GIVE IT HER ALL BECAUSE BLOGMAS HAS TO ALSO BE EXTRAORDINARY AND FABULOUS. SO, WE DID IT ALL: THE MAKEUP, THE HAIR, THE COLOR BLOCKS, THE MOVES AND THE FUCHSIA TIGHTS...
"PUT YOUR BEST MOVES TO USE!",
THEY SAY AND SLAM ON
BOY GEORGE AND CULTURE CLUB
FROM THE STEREOS
SO LOUD THAT
SURELY YOU CAN'T MISS A WORD.
"Do you really want to hurt me?
Do you really want to make me cry?
Precious kisses, words that burns me
Lovers never ask you why
– Culture Club (Do you really want to hurt me 1982)
IT SEEMS THAT IN THE 80S
THE FIRST 3 MINUTES
ARE ENOUGH TO GET ANYONE IN THE ZONE...
THEREFORE, IT'S NEEDLES TO SAY THAT
POSH'S MOVES START TO LOOK
WILDER AND MORE COLORFUL
MINUTE BY MINUTE...
"Cause we are living in as material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl"
– Madonna (Material girl 1984)
IN THE AGE OF MADONNA AND 80S MAXIMALISM WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BE A MATERIAL GIRL?
...NOW MADONNA'S HIT BLASTS LOUD AND CLEAR FROM THE STEREOS AND EVERYBODY STRIKES A POSE TO HONOUR THE QUEEN OF POP IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR WONDROUS PHOTOSHOOT.
IT ALL WENT CRAZY AND
EVERYBODY LOST THEIR
LAST BITS OF PRPFESSIONALISM...
"Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator
Bring us down?
Oh, no, let's go
Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Look for the purple banana
Till they put us in the truck, let's go"
– Prince (Let's go crazy 1984)
