Abbie Chatfield pokes fun at her younger self in throwback photos from her year 10 formal – where she rocked a ‘blue smokey eye and box-dyed hair’
She’s the Bachelor beauty-turned-podcast entrepreneur who rarely puts a foot out of line when it comes to fashion.
But on Thursday, Abbie Chatfield confirmed she didn’t quite avoid the questionable noughties trends that were all the rage a decade ago, sharing a string of throwback photos from her year 10 formal to prove it.
In the images, which were taken from a photo booth, Abbie was seen with jet black ‘box dyed’ hair and a bold blue smokey eye as she gave various pals a peck on the cheek.

‘According to Facebook my Semi formal 10 years ago,’ she captioned the images. ‘No one ever let me wear a dark blue smokey eye with a light beige lipstick and black box dyed hair ever again.’
Abbie also reminded herself ‘not to care too much what I look like’, because ‘no matter how much effort I put in, I’m going to cringe at myself in a decade.’
‘Also to anyone in high school, don’t care too much what boys think of you because you will look back at photos in 10 years and have to use every last brain cell to remember their names,’ she added.

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 of herself bursting into tears over a powerful Qantas advert urging Australians to get vaccinated.
‘Are you f**king serious? This is all your fault, I didn’t know this existed. This is so bad,’ an emotional Abbie confessed after being sent the advert by her friends.
‘Now I’m watching all the other [Qantas] ads,’ she wrote.

Abbie received the AstraZeneca vaccine last month and has long been vocal about her pro-vaccination stance.
The advert features the uplifting track Fly Away by Melbourne singer Tones and I, the 90-second tearjerker takes viewers on a rollercoaster of emotions.
It focuses on several Aussies caught in the Covid crisis with lives on hold and travel plans postponed until high vaccination rates see flight options open up.
One family can finally take their kids to Disneyland, while a couple set off for their delayed wedding in Singapore , and a farmer flies to London to see his daughter.
But despite its focus on Covid jabs being key to the return of international flights, the ad never actually mentions the disease or vaccinations once.

Instead it just shows brief footage of the characters being jabbed before their lives return to some degree of normality and they can resume their travel plans.
Paul Chappell, co-founder of Sydney ad creative firm Brand+Story, said the intention was to move the Covid conversation towards positivity for the future.
‘We wanted to bring some hope and optimism to the pandemic narrative,’ he said on Monday. ‘Hopefully it has!’
