If you weren’t watching The Bachelorette finale last night, it was obviously only because you were watching this year’s Teen Choice Awards. Known to be the more squeaky clean of award shows, Hollywood’s youngest stars came out in droves in hopes of collecting that shiny surfboard. Well, I don’t really care too much who wins what, I’m really just focused on who wore what. What came to my attention as I gathered images for this recap was that while some of Hollywood’s hottest looked downright adorable, perhaps others were taking that whole wholesome look to extremes. It would appear some of the ladies were channeling their favorite childhood characters. (To be fair, I had to Google 89% of these people. I guess that’s what happens when you are middle aged).
If you didn’t know who these were, you’re too young to be reading this…
As previously stated, I’m a big fan of “classic” (um, is the 90’s now classic?) television. One of my favorites is none other than The Nanny starring nasal voiced Fran Drescher. While on the show she is portrayed as a tacky Jewish girl from Queens, if you look at Fran’s wardrobe, she’s really a trendsetter. Don’t believe me? Let’s just take a gander at the spring trends she’s sporting in the photos above:
- Crop top. Check.
- Florals. Check.
- Animal Print. Triple check.
- Stripes. Check.
- Colorblocking. Check.
- Flatforms. Ugh… Check.
Not so tacky now, is she? A funny site I came across while doing my reconnaissance work for this post called, Should Be On the Nanny, pinpoints just how “on point” Fran was with her over the top outfits. I often find myself sitting in front of the TV screen thinking one of two things: “I have that outfit” or “I need that outfit.” If you, too, are channeling your inner girl from Flushing here are some Nanny-approved outfits to hop on your boss’s desk in:
