Remember Ariel from 'Footloose'? Here's Lori Singer more than 30 years later

Her Bomont High days are long behind her, but Lori Singer is still stunning at 59!

The blonde bombshell was a famous face in the 1980s, when she starred in "Footloose" as Ariel Moore and "Fame" as Julie Miller. A Juilliard-trained musician, she first caught the attention of casting directors in the early '80s, landing roles alongside Tom Hanks and Sean Penn. Here's her as Ariel in "Footloose":

After a whirlwind decade, Singer stepped back from the spotlight for 20 years -- until she made her return in 2011 with a guest-starring role on Law & Order: SVU! Most recently, she starred in 2016's "God Knows Where I Am."

Check out Lori back in the day and in 2017!
