I know I am verging on “get off of my lawn” territory…
At least in the 1980’s we had style….
Nothing, to me, illustrates this more than the two video’s below.
One is the original official 1983 video for Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” with Christy Brinkley….
That was an uptown girl who knew how to dress!
The other video is from a recent concert. We won’t talk about how badly Billy has aged…
Instead, let’s look at the difference in how “Uptown Girls” are viewed….
Christy was definitely Uptown.
I love Jennifer Lawrence and friends but…..
There ain’t nothing uptown about these 2015 girls…..
Uptown Girls seem to have had an erosion of both class and style….
I may be elitist. but I still think there is a time and place for style…..
Like Uptown Girls used to represent…
Even when they played with Downtown Boys….
And I might add, there ain’t nothing wrong with Downtown Boys….
But that is another story…..
