    And if you think about it, the Robert Palmer Girls were considered to be the epitome of hotness in their time. And comparing both pictures, I still think they are. Sometimes, more is, well, more.
    Plus, I really don’t get the ubiquitous “no pants” look.

    I agree, the Robert Palmer girls were much sexier (so much so that when I saw the picture and realized half the skirts were knee-length, I did a double-take; I remember it being much more shocking than it seems now).

    Also, what is it with everyone wanting to look like a two-bit Kardashian nowadays? Honestly, do you think you could tell the bottom band members apart if you saw them in a police lineup?

    I was born ´71 and whenever i saw the Palmer girls, i thought: “When i´m grown up, i want to look like them.” I hope girls today don´t want to look like, well, who are they anyway?

    They are “The Saturdays” but what’s the point of learning their names when they’re really just Pussycat Dolls Mark V or VI?

    Which reminds me of the time I was reading a small town newspaper’s fashion column, the highlight of which was the time the columnist got mistaken for a member of the Pussycat Dolls.

    Not! A! Good! Look!
