Yesterday in Styles: 2001: When the Internet Was, Um, Over?

After the 2000 dot-com crash and the Sept. 11 attacks, it seemed as if the era of cocky young Silicon Valley techies minting easy millions was over for good. Ha.

Summer of Yesterday

Summer of Yesterday


Back to the Future meets Fast Times at Ridgemont High when Haley’s summer vacation takes a turn for the retro in this totally rad romantic fantasy. Summer officially sucks. Thanks to a stupid seizure she had a few months earlier, Haley’s stuck going on vacation with her dad and his new family to Disney’s Fort Wilderness instead of enjoying the last session of summer camp back home with her friends. Fort Wilderness holds lots of childhood memories for her father, but surely nothing for Haley. But then a new seizure triggers something she’s never before experienced-time travel-and she ends up in River Country, the campground’s long-abandoned water park, during its heyday. The year? 1982. And there-with its amusing fashion, “oldies” music, and primitive technology-she runs into familiar faces: teenage Dad and Mom before they’d even met. Somehow, Haley must find her way back to the twenty-first century before her present-day parents anguish over her disappearance, a difficult feat now that she’s met Jason, one of the park’s summer residents and employees, who takes the strangely dressed stowaway under his wing. Seizures aside, Haley’s used to controlling her life, and she has no idea how to deal with this dilemma. How can she be falling for a boy whose future she can’t share?

Vote: Which Kardashian/Jenner Woman Wore the Sexiest Dress Yesterday

It was a Kardashian-Jenner battle royal in Cannes yesterday when Kim Kardashian and Kris and Kylie Jenner all showed up at the Daily Mail‘s yacht party in a trio of super-sexy outfits.

kim-kardashian-kylie-jenner-kris-jenner-daily-mail-2015

Kim wore all black, picking a sheer, long-sleeve LaQuan Smith dress that exposed black briefs and a bra. The look was super similar to Kylie’s pick, a coincidence (or not) of the exact type that fuels rumors that the two get frustrated with their overlapping style. The youngest sister wore matched separates from Francesco Scognamiglio that exposed snowy white undergarments.

Kris didn’t get the sheer memo, but she still brought the sexy in a printed gray gown that showed off a lot of cleavage.

A sexy red-carpet M.O. isn’t the only thing the fam shares—get the intel on those black aviator sunglasses the krew’s always wearing on TV.

Watch Kylie and Kendall dish on each sister’s individual quirks:

INTRODUCTION: IT is now twenty-five years since Only Yesterday was first published and it is time to say what has long been apparent that this is an American classic. It is by far the best account of all that happened in the United States during the wonderfully wacky 1920 5. It established a pattern for books of social history which other writers have imitated but have not been able to improve. It has been widely read and enjoyed more than half a million copies have been issued in the United States, England, Italy, Japan and Russia. The demand continues and no doubt it will continue, as long as Americans want to read wise and witty books about their past. Frederick Lewis Allen, who wrote this book, was a Harvard trained editor and connoisseur of human behavior who mixed the fascinating little details of history with the deeds of famous men. In Only Yesterday he wrote of Mah Jong and H. L. Mencken, of Couism and Calvin Coolidge, of Listerines flights of advertising fancy and Lindberghs flight to Paris. In his mod est preface to the original edition Allen suggested that time might make some changes in his judgments of major events. Yet one of the remarkable things about this book is the way it stands up in the light of later research. Since it was published we have had complete and scholarly accounts of the Wall Street crash of 1929, of the Harding scandals, of prohi
