Abbie Chatfield pokes fun at her younger self in throwback photos from her 10-year-old formal – where she rocked a ‘blue smokey eye and box-dyed hair’
She’s the Bachelor beauty-turned-podcast entrepreneur who rarely steps out of line when it comes to fashion.
But on Thursday, Abbie Chatfield confirmed that she wasn’t completely avoiding the questionable 1990s trends that were all the rage a decade ago, and formally shared a series of throwback photos of her 10-year-old to prove it.
In the photos, which were taken from a photo booth, Abbie was seen with jet black ‘box-dyed’ hair and a bold blue smokey eye kissing several friends on the cheek.

“According to Facebook my Semi-formal 10 years ago,” she captioned the images. “Nobody ever made me wear a dark blue smokey eye with a light beige lipstick and black dyed hair.”
Abbie also reminded herself “I don’t really care what I look like” because “no matter how hard I try, I’m going to cringe for myself in ten years.”
“Also to anyone in high school, you don’t really care what guys think of you because in ten years you’ll be looking back at pictures and having to use every last brain cell to remember their names,” she added.
Hardly recognizable: ‘According to Facebook my Semi-formal 10 years ago’, she writes with the images. ‘Nobody ever made me wear a dark blue Smokey eye with a light beige lipstick and black dyed hair again’
Emotional: Abbie recently burst into tears over a powerful Qantas ad urging Australians to get vaccinated
The reality star often shares her life on social media.
Earlier this week, Abbie posted a video in which she burst into tears over a powerful Qantas ad urging Australians to get vaccinated.
‘Are you fucking serious? This is all your fault, I didn’t know this existed. This is so bad,” an emotional Abbie confessed after receiving the ad from her friends.
‘Now I look at all the others’ [Qantas] advertisements,” she wrote.

Abbie received the AstraZeneca vaccine last month and has long been vocal about her pro-vaccination stance.

It targets several Aussies caught up in the Covid crisis with lives on hold and travel plans postponed until high vaccination rates open up flight options.
A family can finally take their kids to Disneyland, while a couple heads for their postponed wedding in Singapore, and a farmer flies to London to see his daughter.
But despite its focus on Covid shots that are key to returning international flights, the ad never once mentions the illness or vaccinations.

Instead, it shows only brief images of the characters being prodded before their lives return to some measure of normalcy and they can resume their travel plans.
Paul Chappell, co-founder of Sydney advertising agency Brand+Story, said the aim was to steer the Covid conversation toward positivity for the future.
“We wanted to bring some hope and optimism to the pandemic story,” he said Monday. ‘Hopefully yes!’
