Kim Kardashian, Rihanna And Other Celebs Bringing The 80s Back In Style (Photos)

It looks like celebrities such as Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce are wanting to turn back the clock on their wardrobes, as we can’t help but notice that ’80s inspired fashions are everywhere these days!

And we’re not just talking about pleated shoulder pads, oversized blazers, or GASP acid washed denim, but heavy eye-liners, prom dresses that look like they came from 1987, and MC Hammer pants that I haven’t worn since I was 9 years-old.

Check out our photo gallery below of celebs bringing back the ’80s and tell us, are you loving or hating these new styles?

    While I know that supermodels are allowed to break fashion rules, I just can't get used to kids wearing all-denim looks again. Oh, and she has a ZIPPER ON HER SHIRT TOO! Miranda, how could you?

    Whereas I can't decide if these pants are more 1990 than 1989, they are definitely not 2013!

    I'm getting a strong John Cusack vibe from Cheryl here.

    Paula Abdul is clearly wanting us to relive her "Rush Rush" days back with her again. Talk about the midas touch!

    Kim looks like she just got out of a 1988 time warp here, right?

    Here's another 1989/1990 fashion era look. Excuse me Beyonce, but I'd like to have my pants back that I wore while watching Reading Rainbow, please and thank you!

    Oh my. There's just so much '80s here that I don't even know where to start! Rihanna looks like she just got her membership to the Breakfast Club.

    Yes, I saw my mother wear something very similar to this blouse at a cousin's bridal shower in 1986.
