Raise your hand if you think the 80s was the best decade of all time! We thought so... The 1980s was truly a time of excess, color, and attitude, and this was seen in the women who became popular during this time period. When they sang or acted, these pop culture icons cemented themselves as the personification of the 1980s. From the big shoulder pads to even bigger hair, do you really remember what each and every single one of these 80s female icons looks like? Spandex, bright colors, and perms were all the rage. The 80s were truly the best of times and the worst of times. While some of us might look back and question some of the hair, makeup, and fashion choices these leading ladies of the 80s made, there is no denying that the best of them measure up perfectly well against the icons of any decade. The 80s saw the rise of the swimsuit model, and with the onset of MTV, a talented singer could score a hit or even maintain a career off of one song alone. Teen movies flourished thanks to John Hughes and his Brat Pack. Cable TV came to American households in a big way, with lots of beautiful and memorable women in starring roles. Whether it was Molly Ringwald making a splash in Pretty in Pink or Madonna ruling the music charts, ladies who made a name for themselves during those 10 years were something special. Do you really remember all of them? Let's find out!
