I went to college and lived in Philadelphia for more than 10 years, and I consider myself always and forever a Philly girl. Which is why I’m totally loving these unearthed vintage ’80s shots of Philly’s finest from way back when. Don’t let the smiles fool you — these girls could claw your eyes out if they wanted to. With one flick of the wrist they could have their earrings off and jab you straight in the face for messing with them. Which is why I’ll love them forever. [Teenage Film]

What were the most cutting edge men of the 1950s wearing to the beach? Butt-baring barely-there swimwear, if this old reel is any indication. This fashion show, highlighting the creations of campy Brit designer Dale Cavana,  features male models with shockingly tiny waists, revealing animal-print banana hammocks, and de rigeur “leisurely” knotted ties.

Vintage Photos Of Stylish, Norm Challenging, Tattooed Women

Although women have achieved a certain level of freedom to decorate their bodies as they wish in modern society, the scandal of getting a tattoo or a piercing wasn’t always limited to unruly teens going against their parents’ wishes. At best, the subject of strange glances on the street, and at worst, the subject of ridicule, tattooed women bucked societal norms in order to decorate their skin as they saw fit, paving the way for today’s inked chicks. Here are some great old photos of some lovely ladies with awesome tatts! Click here to see more photos

Todd Time!

Who didn’t absolutely love the awkward-as-hell Cindy Crawford on the ’90s fashion show “House of Style”? Cindy was less than comfortable actually speaking on camera, but that didn’t stop the execs at MTV from capitalizing on her supermodel popularity. While the original “House of Style” is long gone, MTV has decided to reboot the show as a web-mostly series. The new host will be announced during the MTV Video Awards on September 6. Our guess is Alexa Chung, but either way, we’re stoked to see a comeback. We managed to dig up this vintage video of Todd Oldham interviewing designers Andre Walker and John Galliano, plus two more amazing clips after the jump!
