  1. I don't often quote Joan Collins, but I agree with an assessment that she made recently in the New York Times:

    “A lot of that 1980s fashion was more flattering,” she said. “Quite frankly, a fitted suit and a pencil skirt is more flattering than a smock top and jeans. I mean, the muffin top ... I just find that repellent.”

  2. The model is Paulina Porizkova, who's been married to Ric Ocasek of The Cars for many years now. She's over 40 now and still looks good.
