Your Early 2000s Nostalgia is About to be Cured
Though it’s only been eight years, many of us are starting to long for the dying magic of the early 2000’s, or the noughties, as it’s been named. The years 2000 to 2009 gifted us with some true gems, including the dominion of certain iconic celebrities and fashion trends. Don’t you miss the golden ages of Britney, Paris, Lindsey, Christina, Shakira, Hilary, Gwen, J-Lo, Avril, Naomi and Fergie (among many more)? What about dresses over pants, Juicy Couture tracksuits, micro miniskirts, cargo pants, PLEATHER, Von Dutch hats and weirdly cut tops? And finally, you can’t pretend that part of you doesn’t miss the days where the O.C, Lizzie McGuire, emo, MySpace and bedazzled flip phones weren’t considered a crazy ~throwback~.
Feel desperately nostalgic yet? Well, Pop Culture Died in 2009, our favorite encyclopedia of the noughties scandals, has partnered with The Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum in Brooklyn to recreate the decade that brought us anklets, “Toxic” and made Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.’s relationship ultimate ~goals~. The exhibit, entitled Nicole Richie’s 2007 Memorial Day BBQ, will feed your nostalgia through the lens of the reality star’s infamous summer party that became tabloid crack, from Richie’s scandalous leaked e-vite to Mischa Barton’s hospitalization.
The exhibit is set to run from July 29 to September 10 at THNK1994, and will feature artworks from Laura Collins, Derek Covington Smith, Tiny Stitchers, Lila Freeman, Randy G, Natassha Kwb, among others. Obviously, some of the noughties’ most iconic moments and scandals will be revisited through various art forms and installations.
Grab your tickets here, and don’t even bother showing up without a jean miniskirt and rhinestone Motorola.
