How to model - 80s style - so funny!

I just had to share this because it's hilarious.

This is a video of some of the best (or worst) tips on how to model.

Compiled by, from how-to VHS tapes from the 80s.

It even features Denise Richards, Mario Lopez and Tiffani-Amber Thiesson.

The fashions are nearly as bad as the ridiculous poses. 

It's so bad, it's good.

Vintage dating advice

If you thought dating in 2015 was tough, take a moment to think about the ridiculous advice given to women about 60 years ago.

Poor Florence. She spoke. She used her eyes to see. When will she ever learn ;)

Talking about your clothes = dating suicide

Okay, so don't talk, especially about clothes, don't look at anything or anyone and whatever you do, don't sit on the laps of males.

Imogen and Marilyn

Sydney fashion identity, Imogen Anthony, wore the ultimate retro goddess on her coat at a launch party last night.

From Estelita Huijer, this design features the iconic Marilyn Monroe.

I think it looks pretty amazing. 

Can't wait to see Imogen's own fashion label, White Trash Royalty, in the near future.

It's Lucille Ball's birthday

Lucille Ball was born on this day in 1911.

Trivia Bits

When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were first married in 1940, Desi had to give Lucille a drugstore ring because all of the jewellery stores were closed. She wore that ring for the entire time they were married.

She was scared of birds.

In 1933, she played a slave girl in the film Roman Scandals. She needed to shave her eyebrows for the role and they never grew back.
