First up, let’s talk about the queen of cool, Billie Eilish who looks born to the era, with Robert Smith like hair and an attitude to match.

Next, we have Post Malone, the master of modern mellow vibes. Transport him to the ’80s, and you’ll find him embracing his inner rocker with a mane of wild hair that puts Bon Jovi to shame.

Next, it’s Dua Lipa, who looks like a flamingo in her feathery 80’s throwback while Nicki Minaj, embraces the pink vibes of the 80s.

Lastly, we have The Weeknd, the smooth crooner with an angelic voice. In his ’80s incarnation, he’s embraced his inner Prince, complete with a high-top fade and a purple sequined suit.
