A while back, I did a post on beauty and body image throughout the years. I’m doing something similar today, this time with an Emmys twist. What constitutes healthy body image and style for women (and men!) has changed some in the last 60 years.
Let’s take a look at 6 decades of power couples at the Emmys and think out loud together!
Note: the photos are real, the captions are completely made up.
Unbeknownst to the public, I Love Lucy was actually filmed in color. Desi and Lucy simply enjoyed dressing in greyscale.
Loretta Young: “Can you believe it Danny, we won!”
Danny Thomas: “Even more impressive Loretta, is that my life-long wish for X-ray vision just kicked in.”
As Gregg Allman wondered what he did with his lighter, everyone else wondered if Cher’s face could get any lighter.
The only thing more magnificently voluminous than Connie Sellecca’s hair that night, was James Brolin’s.
David Duchovny vowed to never again play the old game, Telephone, after the original message to “dress for your debut as Sci-Fi’s golden boy at the Emmy’s” was delivered as “dress for a bbq like Siegfried and Roy at Steve Buscemi’s.”
Jennifer Aniston: “Knock knock”
Brad Pitt: “Who’s there?”
Jennifer Aniston: “That photographer”
Girl on the far right: “Hahahaha”
The only thing more reflective than Matthew McConaughey’s shiny shoes, was the look on Camila’s face when she realized illusion netting was not just the material of her gown but also a metaphor for job stability in showbiz
Thanks for hosting, Amanda! (I’d also like to highlight her post from yesterday which is the best thing I’ve read on blogging in a while.)
And if you want to see an even cooler montage that actually moves, go here.
So, if you could go back in time and visit any era, which would it be?
Which decade’s style to you like the best?
Do you watch awards shows? (Did you watch the Emmys on Monday?)
Did you ever play the game Telephone?
