Futuristic Fashion Predictions on Pathetone Weekly

Flashback: '30s Fashion Predictions for the Year 2000

Famous American fashion designers of the 1930s were asked to predict what well-dressed folks would be wearing in the year 2000. Some predictions were spot-on and others were way off. These fashionistas somehow foresaw women of the millennium donning skanky see-through dresses, accessorized with body temperature regulating belts — for our ever-frequent hot flashes, I presume? And let's not forget the nifty headlights installed atop our heads — to offset our dim-witted minds, maybe? Different explanations for these clothing picks are provided in the clip, but nonchalant sexist remarks are there too, so be on the look-out! (Want more fashion predictions?

I liked the headlight to find an "honest man". If that existed they would fly off the shelves. hehe.

that see through dress was reminiscent of Halle Berry's Oscars dress....the difference? Hers was floral, theirs was spirals for decals.

Oh my gosh that was hilarious! Although they were kinda right about the guy having the phone with him, even if it is a cellphone. Did you notice that they wrote the year 2000 with a comma: 2,000. Who does that?
