The 1990s and early aughts were a period of fashion most of us would really rather forget, what with its head-to-toe jean assembles, cowboy boots, and endless onslaught of spaghetti straps. But it was Hollywood premieres that saw some of the decades’ worst offenders, and now—thanks to the new Twitter account @NightOpening—thousands of users are reliving some of the most iconic track-suited velvet monstrosities that ever walked the red carpet, the Outline reports.
Launched by a self-proclaimed unofficial Hollywood historian, @NightOpening showcases movie premiere snapshots from back when stars like Robin Williams, Jackie Chan, and Eddie Murphy dominated American cinema. And if 50,000 followers in two weeks is any indication, Twitter users are obsessed with rejoicing at the nostalgia.
