Holiday 1983

holiday-1983

Cover: Holiday 1983.

Context: Michael Jackson’sThriller” video premieres on December 2.  The final episode of Manimal airs on NBC, featuring a shape-shifting crimefighter who can transform himself into any animal.  Brunei becomes a fully independant state on January 1, 1984.  Culture Club’sKarma Chameleon” rises to the top of the charts.  Tired of wearing rags in her hair, Ceri Marsh dumps the tribal look for an oversized Katherine Hamnett message tee.

Points of Interest:  The cover model is named Rhonda D’Amour.  That can’t be her real name, can it?

What Tyra Would Say: “Forget the Sears catalogue.  This girl is giving me the Sears portrait studio.”

What Auntie Fashion Says: I remember seeing that exact same outfit on Jane Wyman in Falcon Crest.

Grade: B+.
