80's fashion.  Just saying the phrase conjures up all kinds of images of padded shoulders and big hair.  But our birthday boy really put the awesome in awesome 80's fashion!

Christian Lacroix, 61, was the master of pouf, sequins, and completely over-the-top haute couture that really ran wild in the 80's.  And I LOOOOOVED it!  Check out this classic clip from a Christian Lacroix fashion show from the awesome 80's and marvel at the, well, marvelousness of it all!
