Golden Globes: 80s Red Carpet Style – Lynda Carter “Wonder Woman”, Bruce Willis “Top Gun’s” Kelly McGillis, Big Hair and Metallic Clothing

Martin Sheen

The 80s were an interesting time. Greed was good,  excess was everything, and bigger was better.


That was often true for fashion, too. Hair was huge; shoulders extended; shine was in, and synthetic was where it was at.


The decade was also a time of saluting the greats of an earlier era; the huge talents of Bette Davis and Sammy Davis Jr. were showcased by the HFPA, as were rising stars, Kevin Bacon, Bruce Willis, and Marlee Matlin.


Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter – breathtakingly beautiful, Dan Lauria, Fred Savage, and Alley Mills from the television show: The Wonder Years. Kristy McNichol in Princess Di flats and a mini – all the rage of the era.


Seven-time 007 is here, Roger Moore with Amanda McBroom and Suzanne Somers, as is Dionne Warwick, Maria Conchita Alonso, Lorenzo Lamas, and Top Gun‘s Kelly McGillis. So is Moore’s successor, Pierce Brosnan.


We pause and pay tribute to those no longer with us. Huge talents, never forgotten, forever honored, and missed.


While we also pay homage to the talents that are still expanding our imaginations with performances that capture the magic and expand our dreams.
