Mini Skirt Monday #42: Couples


Did these guys ever think to themselves "Thank God I'm in my prime during the glory days of the miniskirt"? Or did they take it for granted, and assumed it would always sustain this popularity? Either way, they were lucky dogs - by the time I came of age, the trend had gone bye-bye.  I was born perhaps 7 years too late.  All that was left of the mini were some Polaroids of days gone by.

The theme of this week's Mini Skirt Monday is "couples" - simply a girl in a mini-skirt, and the luck bastard with her.  Given that these pictures are from around 1970, that would mean that, if they are still together, their relationship is now about 40 years old!  Everyone in these pictures is basically ready to collect social security checks.... sweet Jesus, time flies!


Yes indeed. That is my main man, Larry King.  He was quite the player.

  2. I was thrilled when they came back in the 80s and have stayed around. I refuse to wear anything below the knee ever. My legs are my best feature so I wear minis all the time. I'm thankful for the freedom the women of the 60s allowed us.

  3. The pic that is 2 below Larry King, is that Liza Minnelli coming down the stairs to and Kurt Russell?

  5. Sweet Jesus! Larry King looks like a psycho in that photo. The eyes! He looks like he wants to eat the photographer's liver. Spooky as hell.

  6. I had a girlfriend in 1970 who wore miniskirts and I'm pretty sure there is a photo or two of me and her together with her skirt. But I have no clue as to where she is today. I'm guessing she wouldn't look as good today in a mini as she did then.

  7. Great minis, great big hair-dos, and especially nice is the Laverda 750 twin! Love to have one of those...

    Good start to the week, Gil!

  8. The girl in the B&W photo (under King) is my ideal 70s girl. I just love that look! Man it's times like this I really miss the 70s.

    Larry King looks like he could replace Joe Pesci in 'GoodFellas'.

  9. Larry King is an inspiration to us all. That a guy who looks like a giant housefly could ever get one smokin' hot chick, let alone several...!

  10. Nice! A few mixed-race couples thrown in, too. Not a big deal now, but it certainly was then.
    Larry King is single again, so watch out, girls!
