Old Guys Rule

Tonight we celebrated our friend, David Graff's 50th birthday. After our record-breaking day at Dunbar, we zipped over to Bowen for an intimate evening with David's closest friends and family at the Aldercove Estates a.k.a Party Central. As always, delectable food was plentiful and especially welcomed after a very looong and busy day.

Here's a photo of David back in the early 80's during his days as a professional musician, looking very suave and sexy. Check out the Final Net helmut and sky-high shoulder pads! I vividly remember swooning over the likes of Spandau Ballet, Japan and Duran Duran. The 80's were a very good time.

As it happens, I recently found a photo of myself from a shoot back in 1985. During the break we were hanging out in the studio looking to have some fun with the camera. I was actually there to do the maquillage and not to be the mannequin.

You cannot tell in this photo, but the inspiration was Ryuichi Sakamoto's 1981 album cover - Left Handed Dream. Spontaneous over-indulgence and late nights resulted in something a little different. The 80's were a very good time.
