Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana was the celebrity persona/alter ego of pop singer Miley Cyrus. She had her own show on Disney Channel, which revolved around Miley Stewart, a normal high schooler, by day and Hannah, a teen pop sensation, by night.  Some of her famous songs include “Best of Both Worlds,” “Rock Star,” and “Nobody’s Perfect.” Her massive success resulted in two movies: one following her concert and the other as a conclusion to the show. She is known for her signature blonde wig. Later on, she made music as both Hannah and Miley, before just going by Miley. This makes a great throwback or Disney nostalgia costume.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is an American singer/songwriter. From “Love Story” to “You Belong with Me,” her songs narrate her personal and romantic life. She started out as a country singer, but her current music fits more of the pop genre. Taylor is one of the world’s best selling music artists and the highest earning female musician of the 2010s. Some of her hit albums include Red, Speak Now, 1989, and her most recent album, Lover. As most musicians, Taylor’s style has evolved throughout the years, so we have three looks from each era of her career. You can go classic country pop with her long hair and cowboy boots, Red style with a black fedora and red flats, or a modern T-Swift with a glittery dress.

Madonna (1980s Virgin Tour)

Madonna from The Virgin Tour

From the start of her decades-long career of pop stardom, Madonna embraced a scandalous, envelope-pushing image. As tame as it looks through modern eyes, Madonna’s penchant for wearing cropped tops, short skirts, and singing about “sensitive” topics like virginity raised eyebrows in the 1980s. She unabashedly titled her debut concert tour The Virgin Tour, and wore this lacy, white getup consistent that turned the culturally traditional bridal aesthetic completely on its head.

M.C. Hammer

MC Hammer is the stage name of Stanley Burrell, an 80s hip hop artist known for his smash hits “U Can’t Touch This” and “2 Legit 2 Quit”, which feature his flashy dance moves and ultra baggy pants that came to be known simply as Hammer Pants.

Britney Spears

The princess of pop first reached stardom with her hit single video, “Baby One More Time.” Britney performs the 90’s classic in a school girl uniform with a fun and unique twist.

Jem

Who didn’t want to be Jem during the 1980’s? The second Jerrica Benton touched her holographic earrings Syngergy transformed her into the dazzling rock star, Jem. Between running a foster program for teens, driving a sweet Rolls Royce, and romancing Rio it’s surprising that Jem found time for belting out tunes. But she and the Holograms managed to outperform the Misfits in every episode. And she did it wearing a lot of pink.

Beyonce Single Ladies

Beyonce keeps it fabulous while singing this anthem for single ladies. She wears a simple leotard and accessorizes with some unique bling. If you’d like to take the look to the next level, grab two friends to complete the trio and work on those dance moves!

Gangnam Style PSY

The K-pop single Gangnam Style was a force of nature in 2012, breaking a billion YouTube views. In the music video, PSY sports numerous flamboyant suits, most famously a blue tuxedo while doing his signature horse dance and swallowing airborne debris.
