    One of the photos doesn’t belong to 80’s epoch.
    Girl on 2:00 is italian or french actress of early 60’s.
    She’s visually different: her eyeliner makeup and new look skirt with black belt look similar to 80’s but actually they are not:)

    Thanks for the catch. Looks like its Brigitte Bardot.

    That’s random that they had a picture of Brigitte Bardot from the ’60s in there. I also saw the same photo from “Dynasty” twice. I guess they wanted to make sure people were paying attention!

    I liked the video. I’m a fan of the ’80s and like most of the fashion from that time.
