It has a decade since the legendary year of 2007. Things were very different then, so different that it sometimes becomes hard to remember just how exactly we as a population operated from day to day.

In 2007, you probably wore Aeropostale. You signed onto AIM after school every day, wished you had a Blackberry or a Sidekick like Paris Hilton and probably wished you could score tickets to see the Spice Girls live during their reunion tour. You may have loved The Hills and been totally addicted to the High School Musical soundtrack, but in the end, you might not remember the year itself because you’re too busy thanking God that you still don’t have to wear braces.

That all being said, we still want a Juicy Couture tracksuit. Check out 10 moments you may have forgotten from the year 2007. Good luck taking a stroll down memory lane, it’s not always pretty.

Not only was Kim Kardashian‘s infamous sex tape released in 2007, but her whole family was brought to TV screens later that year with the premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. 10 years later it doesn’t look like we’re getting rid of the Kardashian crew anytime soon.


2. Naomi Campbell wore couture to community service.

Naomi Campbell was known for her temper in 2007 and during her trial the supermodel was known to be resistant to the efforts of the legal system. She not only wore a Dolce & Gabbana gown during her community service hours, but she also donned a hoodie that read “Naomi hit me.”
