The eighties are an unending font of joy, incredulity and mirth, but I, alas, am out of scans. I know! Calamity! Nick Rhodes here is clearly very worried about it, too. Nick feels things very deeply. So we're taking a break here for a smidge until I get things sorted out.

Until then, maybe visit here or here to get your fix of eighties awesomeness.

Mastey Home Maintenance Hair Care System

Her hair probably does look terrific. Can't really tell, though. They're all so blurry! Look, photographer, you've got a gaggle of young, pretty models. They probably all have really nice skin. There's no need to fuzz them out into nonexistence.

Also, as near as I can tell, the Mastey Home Maintenance Hair Care System just seems to be shampoo, conditioner, and a creme rinse.

Maybelline Kissing Glosses

Yeah, "Kissing Potion" is pretty much flavored mineral oil. Doesn't matter. That model is so fresh-faced and charming I would buy anything she was hawking.

Rive Gauche by Yves Saint Laurent

I love her. Do you know how rare it is to find a model who actually looks like a fully-grown, sophisticated adult in fragrance ads these days? She looks like she didn't need to use a fake ID to buy that wine. And she is working that scarf.

Joanie Char

That's a whole lot of blouse she's wearing. Still, I kind of love her gleeful expression: "Yeah, I just found a pearl in my hors d'oeuvres. This sort of thing happens to me a lot. It is not at all tough being me."

New Man

"Casual dressing for those who don't take dressing casually."

Wait... we're supposed to believe these two take dressing seriously? In those outfits?

Mystere by Rochas

I think this ad campaign needs to bolster its definition of "sorcery". A little neon paint squiggle across the face doesn't really say "most magical" to me.
