Help me think of a (female) costume for a 1986 theme party

I'm attending a friend's birthday party who was born in 1986, hence the party's theme. I'm female, but I've only been able to think of a lot of male costumes that don't get me anywhere (karate kid, tom cruise in top gun, etc). The costume has to be someone/something specific from that year. Help me think of a female costume (preferably quickly since the party is .. tonight)!
