I have a love/hate relationship with the early 2000s — love because it reminds me of middle school and high school (and it’s always fun to reminisce about the good old days) but hate due to it being one of the worst moments in fashion history…at least in my opinion. And because what goes around comes around, some of these popular styles from the time are making a comeback for spring 2015. Yes, our worst nightmare is coming true (and no, it’s not Amanda Bynes driving a car within 100 feet of you).
I haven’t done a Throwback Thursday here in quite a while, and what better occasion to revive it than CANNES TIME? Yes, it’s that time of year again — where both American and foreign A-listers gather in the south of France to
celebrate film be photographed in expensive borrowed gowns for all of us to judge. But because the festival kicked off just yesterday, I wanted to wait a bit before we discussed this year’s red carpet so I thought I’d compromise and talk about the best of the Cannes red carpet from years past (as well as the not-so-great, the…interesting, and the Diane Kruger — a category of its own).
There was a place and time where it was cool to wear logos — Gucci G’s, Fendi F’s and Juicy Couture everything (so the 2001-2006 range). Then it died off for a while and now we’re seeing a comeback, but [thankfully] in a slightly more tasteful way.
