Can you think of a celebrity fad that you knowingly followed? An internet forum member recently asked which celebrities created fads that were followed by everyone. Here are their honest confessions. Do you agree?
1. Pamela Anderson — Uggs and Barbed Wire Armband Tattoos
Do you remember when Pamela Anderson was spotted wearing Ugg boots on an episode of Baywatch? They immediately went mainstream. She also influenced the barbed wire armband tattoo. Side note: her documentary on Netflix is awesome.
2. Gwen Stefani — Platinum Blonde Hair and Red Lipstick
There is No Doubt that Gwen Stefani ushered in the platinum blonde life, complete with crop tops and bright red lipstick. Many users note that she also rocked those 90s thin eyebrows like a Queen.
3. Lance Armstrong — Yellow Livestrong Bracelets
Do you remember all those rubber bracelets people were wearing once upon a time? “Lance Armstrong got everyone to wear yellow Livestrong bracelets for a while,” one Tour De fan recalled. “And basically spawned off rubber bracelets for any occasion.”
4. Josephine Baker — Baby Hairs
Many respondents joked, “OMG, every wig I buy has to have baby hair, and that is due to Josephine Baker, who started the trend.” Others added that Aaliyah helped to revitalize the hairstyle, but Baker pioneered it.
5. Eminem — Bleached Blonde Hair on Men
Several pointed out, “So many boys in the early 2000s did the super short bleached Slim Shady hairstyle to be like Eminem.” Does anyone remember that MTV Awards show when he performed “The Real Slim Shady,” and there were like 800 lookalikes?
6. Sarah Jessica Parker — Fake Flowers
Do you remember when everyone went into full bloom? “Women pinned big fake flowers to their clothes after Sarah Jessica Parker wore them on Sex and the City,” one viewer recalled.
7. Farrah Fawcett — Feather Cut
What started out as a cute hairstyle for her character on the show Charlie’s Angels transcended into a worldwide phenomenon. Farrah and her feather flip took the world by storm.
8. John Lennon — Round-Rimmed Sunglasses
Another individual pointed out, “John Lennon and those little round sunglasses” were everywhere you looked. Even today still, those rounded sunglasses and even regular glasses are a fashion staple to this day.
9. Courtney Love — Babydoll Dresses
Many people debate about who wore the babydoll dress the best between fellow female band members Courtney Love and Kat Bjelland. But the true discussion was who was more influential in said dress, and the online forum agreed it was Love.
10. Brooke Shields — Bushy Eyebrows
A slew of younger folks wanted to credit the bushy eyebrow to Cara Delevigne, but no, no, no, the credit definitely has to go to Ms. Brooke Shields circa 1980-something.
11. Mariah Carey — Low-Rise Jeans
Mariah Carey created the trend of low-rise jeans along with many other fashion and musical trends. But her creation of the lowrise jeans wasn’t a traditional one. Originally, Carey would cut the waistband off her jeans to create the low-rise effect.
12. John F. Kennedy — Stopped Wearing Hats
The nation just kind of went with it when the President of the United States stopped wearing hats. Another mentioned, “The hat industry literally blamed him and sent him letters and would even send him hats begging him to wear them.”
13. Tom Cruise — Aviator Sunglasses
When Tom Cruise’s Maverick donned his aviator sunglasses, so did the rest of the world. The film and Cruise’s character were at the center of the aviator fashion boom in the mid-80s.
14. Jennifer Aniston — The Rachel Haircut on Friends
Over fourteen hundred commenters agreed the Rachel Cut that Jennifer Aniston was rocking for the earlier seasons of Friends was quite a memorable one. In fact, it’s even more memorable for its transformation from the Rachel cut to the Karen cut.
