The autumn-winter 2009 New York, Milan and Paris fashion shows were a whirlwind of nostalgia. From Roberto Cavalli's chain-metal ode to the Sunset Strip to Marc Jacobs' New Wave of neon, designers drew inspiration from a decade not-so-forgotten.

Oh my god! Like, hot pink is so on its way back to the mall. This and other neon colors popped on the New York Fashion Week runways of Michael Kors, Narciso Rodriguez and Marc Jacobs, among others.
And while the asymmetrical Junya Watanabe sweater Michelle Obama wore to London's Royal Opera House while in town for the G-20 summit garnered some buzz, let's not forget that Deborah Foreman's Julie rocked that look in sweatshirt form around the 818.
