Stop. Just stop. I can’t with these. They’re just TOO PERFECT. The backlit hair, the makeup, the outfits, the lavender and lamé. God I miss the ’80s. A new book of celebrity photographer Mario Casilli’s decade-defining portraits hits the shelves November 21, with a forward by Joan Collins. From top left: Queen Collins, Morgan Fairchild, Loni Anderson, Joan Van Ark, a sexy Barbra Streisand (SO WRONG), and Stryper superfan Oprah Winfrey. Says the Daily Mail: “It was the decade of Dynasty, Dallas, shoulder pads and excess in all forms. Big was beautiful, greed was good, and beauty was bold. Popular television series’, films and music reflected the 1980s trend for beautiful people living extraordinary lives. And cult photographer Mario Casilli captured those mesmerising subjects at their best, defining forever the look of 80s pop culture through his soft focus lens.” Order your copy here.

I’m still a relative newbie to Twitter (three months and counting), so I’m just now experiencing many things most people take for granted. For instance: Did you know ACTUAL CELEBRITIES sometime respond if you include their Twitter address? It’s TRUE! Yesterday, Noah Levy from In Touch Weekly and I were discussing our favorite Morgan Fairchild movies (as you do), when MORGAN HESELF just chimed right in! I was GOBSMACKED!I wish I could go back in time and show this to my 13-year-old self reenacting her lines from Flamingo Road in front of my mother’s dressing room mirror!
Oh! The glamour! My eyes! I’m blinded! Morgan Fairchild, god bless her, who looks JUST AS BEAUTIFUL, JUST AS STYLISH, JUST AS BEWITCHING as she did on Mork & Mindy, on Search for Tomorrow, on Flamingo Road (BEST. TELEVISION. SHOW. EVER), on Paper Dolls, in The Initiation of Sarah, in those Old Navy commercials, I could go on and on – MY GOD, SHE’S UNDERRATED AS AN ACTRESS. She WAS the ’70s, you know, to a certain subset of little faggots growing up in the heartland. We looked to her for our images of big city style, big city hair… She was just everything we wanted to be. Oh, it’s good to see her again. And it’s nice to see GILF Lou Ferrigno, kooky Linda Blair, and dear, sweet Adrianne Curry, who never misses an opportunity to parade around in a Halloween costume. (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
