Back To The Fashion Future

Katy Perry looked chic in her 90’s inspired, plaid outfit, while Ariana Grande made a statement in her floor length floral ensemble, and Jesse J dazzled in her elaborate all white piece. For the past few months, stars have been changing up their wardrobe with outfits inspired by past decades. Take a look as I count down my top five favorite celeb retro looks!

5. Ariana Grande

I love her. You love her. Seriously, who doesn’t love Ariana Grande? Her sweet personality, sanguine music, and stylish outfits have won over the hearts of girls--- and boys- all over the world. And this getup definitely screams Ariana! She looks totally adorable in this 50’s inspired look that she wore on the set of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in New York City. She donned a gorgeous floor length floral skirt, with a white bustier, and nude-pink platform heels. She sported her signature pulled back hair with loose banana curls. I love the way she dresses yeah, I love it, I love it.     

4. Lady Gaga  


 Yes, Lady Gaga is sporting an ensemble that is both retro and wearable. Surprised? So am I. Gaga is always fashionable, just not always in such a laid-back way. Nonetheless, this outfit is chic and photo ready, even just for a casual day out. Gaga pulled this off miraculously, giving this bright red jumpsuit some flare with great accessories like a necklace intertwined with seashells and crystals and a lilac hand bag. She went big and bold when it came to her blonde hair, which went perfectly with the outfit. Applause is what she lives for; applause is what she’ll get.

3. Blake Lively


 C’mon, when is Blake Lively not looking insanely gorgeous? (never) So of course when she stepped out in this 40’s inspired Marchesa dress, all eyes were on her. She wore this black and white all-lace gown to a Cleef & Arpels’ store event in New York City. Blake stunned in Cleef & Arpels’ jewelry and Gucci heels. Her hair and makeup looked flawless and paired perfectly with the lavish nostalgic look. So what if she’s left the scandalous life of a Manhattan elite, she’s still a fashion elite in my eyes! (Are Gossip Girl references no longer allowed? Nahhhh.)

2. Jessie J

Jessie J has been out of the spotlight for quite sometime now, but she is certainly not afraid to step back into it with this daring retro outfit, even when she’s in the eyes of royalty! At the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium in London, England, Jessie donned an elaborate and edgy white cutout crop top, complete with swirls and a V shaped neckline. She paired this with high waisted white pants and minimal jewelry. Jessie went with an interesting choice for her style of hair at this event, in which she performed for Prince Charles and other prestigious guests. Her short hair was slicked back and pressed against her head in a curled manner. It was daring, yet dashing. Jessie definitely pulled it off.

1    1. Katy Perry


And my number one celeb retro look is…. Katy Perry! Killer Queen fits her and her brand new fragrance exceptionally. At the Berlin launch for her new perfume, Katy ravished in a Clueless inspired ensemble. She wore an Alice + Olivia Kidman Open Box Jacket and Box Pleat Skirt, paired with a Dolce and Gabbana Blouse, and finished with Christian Louboutin Resillissima Booties. Katy looked extra adorable with her across-the-head braid and thin silver hoop earrings. This queen kills, in music, fashion, and everything in between!
