Don’t Call it a Comeback Trend

Retna Ltd. & NBC

I loved snap bracelets and blazing the Oregon Trail in computer class, I loved the Fresh Prince and Mr. Miyagi; the '80s were awesome in every way—psych! They were so not! I wore red lipstick with turquoise eye shadow and a side ponytail, all at the same time, and I thought I was the raddest girl in the whole world. Now I’m just mortified that photographic evidence of this style moment exists.

So imagine my apprehension at seeing these two lovely modern-day stars—actress Kate del Castillo and newly crowned Miss Universe Venezuela's Stefania Fernandez—sporting side-parted waves and red mouths far too reminiscent of a crazy decade that's making a major beauty comeback. I’m faced with more and more flashbacks every day, and I have to say…I’m starting to freak.

Tell me readers, am I overreacting or do you, too, feel like you need to be saved by the bell and brought back to 2009?
