Time Capsule | January 1991

Well looketty look what we have here... a new Time Capsule from January 1991! 1991 is the year I started getting interested in things like fashion, hair & makeup. I bought my first Dolly magazine in July, and I was ALL over that flower power revival that infiltrated pretty much every corner of pop culture at the time.

It pains me that movies starring both Arnold Schwarzenegger and JCVD made the movies list of this Time Capsule. Urgh. Just urgh. Thankfully, as always, the music charts of 1991 did not disappoint. Interestingly, many of the hits from the beginning of 1991 were dance tracks.

Apparently we all loved nothing more than a bit of a boogie in the early '90s. I mean how could we not with songs like Pray by MC Hammer, Just Another Dream by Cathy Dennis and London Beat's I've Been Thinking About You? It all takes me back to the days of the school disco. I'm not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing. The jury will be out for a good while yet.

In the meantime, let's crack open this January 1991 Time Capsule...

 

WHAT WERE WE WATCHING?

To be totally honest, I've only ever seen one of these flicks - Return To The Blue Lagoon - and even that wasn't good (or bad) enough to leave any sort of a lingering impression on me. Hopefully you have better memories of these moo-vees.

WHAT WERE WE LISTENING TO?

Where else would you find such an eclectic mix of tunes if not in one of our Time Capsules? When you've got Bette Midler and John Farnham swapping chart positions with the likes of Vanilla Ice and Janet Jackson you know you've got diversity on your Sanyo boombox.

WHAT WERE WE WEARING?

It's a total fashion-a-palooza this month! SO MANY great editorials, and I couldn't bare to leave any of them out. Alison Brahe dons a little black flip dress that was conveniently for sale through Dolly Club; Niki Taylor features in quite a few of these spreads - she was every bit the 'it' girl from 1991 onwards; and gingham takes center-stage with a fabulous Vogue (US) spread.

There's SO MUCH more besides, so let's get into these amazing editorials...
