80's Rule

The Oscars were last Sunday and there were some phenomenal films presented.  Best picture went to Slumdog Millionaire and best achievement in costume design went to Michael O'Connor for his beautiful work in The Duchess.  What the Oscars missed was an award for most stylish and directional film for fashion of the year.  Had that been the case, We Own the Night (even though it's from 2007) would have taken home the statue.  Seeing Eva Mendes rock a look from 1988 and the vibe that director James Gray created is driving us to crimp our hair and pull out the miniskirts, sheer black tights (leg look du jour), and big hoop earrings.  Kate Moss, the trendsetting goddess, was photographed last week at Another Magazine's dinner during London Fashion Week dressed in an 80's state of mind (see for photos).  There are still another two weeks left of the catwalks, but one thing's for sure after reviewing the fashion shows from New York, London, and Milan......  the 80's craze is in full swing.  It's a great time to get excited about style.
