what i do like is awards shows. and you can always count on mtv to host a very interesting awards show. i never actually watch the whole show, but i do like to see what everyone is wearing (even if i don't know who everyone is)! an mtv awards show is the place where artists can show off their true artistic license when it comes to fashion. i don't always love it (meat dress), but it is fun to watch!
so i got to thinking. what would it have been like if mtv had been created pre-80s. how would the red carpets have looked at the awards shows back then? i love me some retro singers, so i found a few of my fashion favorites.
janis would have rocked the red carpet like no one else. i love her voice, her style, her i don't give a crap attitude.
stevie nicks, 'nuff said.
linda ronstadt (that's what i would look like, too, if i ever got to meet johnny!)
dolly parton! sparkles and ruffles...a woman after my own heart.
no one rocks a mini like tina turner
i know he's not a woman, but come on...david bowie would have ruled the red carpet!
joni mitchell – so simple and beautiful and classy. lover her.
debbie harry – she can make anything look good.
aretha, la diva
cher – the original
we can't forget the amazing diana ross!
at least half of these women have their own doll. is that when you know you've made it? when you get a doll? i need to get myself a doll. i kind of already have one...
monchhichi was my nickname growing up. i looked exactly like this as a child...haircut and all!
ok, so who did i miss? who had (or still has) style that you would have loved to see walk the red carpet?
