Good News If You Saved Your Zebra Leggings from the '80s: New York Fashion Week Says They're Back in Style

Good News If You Saved Your Zebra Leggings from the '80s: New York Fashion Week Says They're Back in Style

Tom Ford's runway show had cheetah print, giant hoops, and — yes — "mullet tails" for the win.

Did you think headbands, glittery animal prints, and mullets became extinct when shopping malls started dying off? Think again! If Tom Ford has anything to say about it, all those items — and even more glorious relics of the 1980s — will rule the Fall/Winter 2018 fashion trends. 

The designer showed off his latest collection at New York's Park Avenue Armory on February 8. Before they headed out on the runway, models got a totally tubular makeover. Vogue chatted up the hair and makeup team, who were knee-deep in smoky black eyeshadow and thick leather headbands, and busily giving It Girls like Kaia Gerber "mullet-tails." 

Even though there were plenty of jaded fashion types on the crowd, we can't help but imagine that the glitzy runway spectacle — filled with logo sweaters, sequins, and acid hues — managed to make everyone smile.

That's certainly true of the celebrities who sat in the front row. Ford's A-list guests included Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, Hailey Baldwin, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Karen Elson, and Doutzen Kroes. And from the looks of things, a rad time was had by all. 


Take a peek at photos from last night's throwback-theme runway show, below. And if you kept your zebra leggings from another decade, rest assured: it's safe to wear them out in public again.
