80s fasion and hair was quite capable of making even drop-dead gorgeous women look completely ridiculous. My wife looks better now than she does on pictures from the mid-eighties, when she was a teenager. Partly that's because she's inherently wonderful of course, but the style of the period really just gave everyone a hard time. No one looks good in a frizzy perm, and pastels don't fix it. The seventies was nothing by comparison.
