Being a girl who likes to sing and play guitar many of my role models and heroes are singers. Paula Abdul was a huge inspiration to me in the early 1900s, I must have listened to Spellbound hundreds of times – in fact it plays while I write these words.
Forever Your Girl came out in 1988; a Reebok ad in 1989.
Opposites Attract also 1989 and the cover of People in 1990.
Her fashion was a reflection of the excess of the times, lets take a look back. A covered up Paula, wow is right with that catastrophe of a blouse in that first pic but her hat was chic, then we’ve got blazers, shoulder pads and big hair.
Performance Gear; lots of cleavage with low cut bustiers, metal bras and more hairspray.
Sassy off stage as well with more cleavage, embellishments and fishnets, the hoop earrings were her signature.
