We are in the midst of an eighties revival, but could it extend beyond neon – all the way to shoulder pads? Jennifer Connelly attended the ‘He Just Not That Into You’ film premiere on February 2, 2009 in Los Angeles wearing a beaded green mini-dress with wide shoulders. Linda Evans, seen at the 38th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in 1986, made this look famous on the popular 80’s TV drama ‘Dynasty’. Gwyneth Paltrow wore a structured wide shoulder at the 14th Annual Saks Fifth Avenue’s Unforgettable Evening at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on February 10, 2009. Joan Collins, also of ‘Dynasty’ fame, showed off this look while promoting her Hat Collection in 1985. For a lightbox of great 80′s shoulder pads click here.
