We kind of like the one-piece jumpsuits that are making a comeback, but we have to giggle every time we see Judy Landers' 1981 cover of SHAPE.

Heather Locklear, August 1982

Heather Locklear has graced the cover of SHAPE a few times: 1982, 1984, 1988, 1990, and 2007. And every time, we've been both jealous and impressed with her look (though we're glad she ditched the leg warmers)!

Get her stay-fit secrets here!

Joan Collins, December 1982

English actress Joan Collins appeared on our December cover in 1982, rocking a sweatband and leg warmers. In the '90s, Collins switched gears from acting to writing books and becoming a political activist in the United States and England. Now, she's a contributing writer to Harpar's Bazaar, The Daily Mail, and The Daily Telegraph.

Suzanne Somers, January 1983

Oh, Suzanne Somers. A picture is worth a thousand words, yet we can't find a single one worthy of describing this outfit.

Although Somers eventually ditched the high-waisted leotards and tights, she remains in the spotlight, in part because she was diagnosed with cancer in 2001 and refused chemo, opting for alternative medicine instead.

Jane Seymour, September 1983

It's almost unfair how lovely British-born Jane Seymour looks on this cover. Not much has changed since 1982. Seymour seems to know the secret to turning back time!

Diane Lane, October 1983

We hope Diane Lane can forgive us for putting her in this outfit! Still, the 45-year old looks as good as ever today. Her go-to workout? Yoga!

Cybill Shepherd, April 1984

We think former beauty queen and model Cybill Shepherd looks great on the cover of SHAPE, even if her teal tights do not.

Mary Hart, June 1987

Jennifer Lopez once said that there is "only one Mary Hart." We couldn't agree more!

Jane Fonda, November 1987

That hair. The leotard. Wow. Although we now have to question the outfit choice (what were we thinking?), we're glad to see that the queen of exercise, Jane Fonda is still rocking a hot body today!

Phylicia Rashad, June 1988

Wondering what Phylicia Rashad's been up to lately? After starring in Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls in 2010, she was hired by Denzel Washington to serve as the first chair of the Denzel Washington Chair in Theatre, a scholarship program Washington created to give back to his alma mater, Fordham University.
