Archie's Girls M.A.C. Cosmetics Collection
Like many girls in the ’80s, I spent countless afternoons poring over Archie comics, imagining a young-adult me where I’d be as pretty, popular and well-deu001f ned as Betty and Veronica in Technicolor cartoon. The two opposing archetypes—blond vs. brunette, kind vs. cutting, jean-wearing vs. thigh-baring—were my u001ffirst examples of who I could be and, of major importance in my 10-year-old mind, how to dress. I studied the girls’ looks with the magnified lens of a budding fashion detective.
