What an amazing weekend I had. On Saturday, Audley End House hosted the Greatest Eighties Concert Ever! And it didn’t disappoint.
What I found funny was the age of the spectators. I mean, they were OLD! Then I realised. So was I. No longer was I that young teenager with her back-combed hair, Madonna style clothes, and white stiletto shoes. Instead, it dawned on me… Heck, I’m middle-aged.
When did that happen? I haven’t turned grey… or not that my hair dye won’t cover-up. I don’t have many wrinkles that L’Oreal eye cream can’t cope with. My bum hasn’t sagged that much… has it?
So, I thought it would be fun to do a ‘Then and Now’ blog.
Right, I’ll be brave and start with me.
Notice the hair and the shoulder pads? The only good thing about the first picture is that the car is KITT from Knight Rider.
So, back to Saturday night.
Recognise this singer? This is Nik Kershaw way back in the eighties.
Here he is some twenty years later playing one of his most famous songs.
How about this man?
The gorgeous Rick Astley. Remember that wiggle dance. Oh boy, did I love this guy back then. Actually, I still love him now. Here’s why…
Here are some more…
Teen heartthrob, Emilio Estevez, from St. Elmo’s Fire.
How about Star Wars hero, Mark Hamill.
We all remember the beautiful Kelly McGillis.
What about the people we love now?
Take the sexy Mark Harmon from NCIS fame.
And ever wondered if the hunky Paul Walker was really always that cute?
Ahh, wasn’t he just adorable!
So, which childhood crush or hero do you think has changed the most with age?… For the better, and (cough cough) for the worse. Shannon Doherty is doing okay, and so is Demi Moore for that matter. Who do you think hasn’t aged at all?
