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.

Here's a few key ad campaigns for Revlon from the '80s & '90s. We probably haven't even scratched the surface of just how many ran in the magazines back then, but they are definitely some of the best. If you're a Cindy Crawford fan, you'll probably be very much into this post.Read More

There's a smokin' Cosmopolitan spread with Alison Brahe, a spread from the lesser-known Looks magazine featuring a model who I am 90% sure is a very young Sophie Falkiner*, and '90s fashion export Toneya Bird in a tropical whites editorial.
But wait! There's more! No! Let's not wait... let's get started...Read More
