Brooke Shields wishes she kept all of her clothes from the 1980s.

The Suddenly Susan actress was one of the biggest trendsetters of the decade, having become the youngest model to appear on the cover of Vogue in 1980, and also famously starring in controversial print and TV ads for Calvin Klein.

Reflecting on the era in an interview for the New York Post, Brooke admitted she should have kept all of her clothes as a lot of the looks are in style once again.

"I wish I didn't throw away all my big shoulder pads," she sighed. "Fashion felt really good then. It was fun, and it was colourful. Just those shapes that are coming back - the higher-waisted jeans, the jackets. The Reeboks with the socks shoved down! I just remember feeling like I'd really figured it out."

Brooke went on to share that her daughters Rowan, 18, and Grier, 15, are fascinated by her clothes from the '80s, and when it came to selecting sweaters and T-shirts to sell on her new Beginning Is Now lifestyle website, they had very specific ideas.

"I was sure both of them would have picked one of the vintage exercise graphics. But both of them wanted the one with the picture of me from the late '70s or early '80s on it!" the 56-year-old smiled.
