Written by John Hughes and directed by Howard Deutch, the 1986 movie ‘Pretty in Pink’ celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The film follows the story of Andie (Molly Ringwald), who grows up on the poor side of town. Having a crush on a rich kid Blane (Andrew McCarthy), Andie must choose between him and her childhood friend Duckie (John Cryer).
Through it all, the film features a view of teenage 1980’s fashion with a cool New Wave soundtrack. One of the most iconic style moments from the film is thanks to a prom scene where Andie shows up in a pink dress she made herself. Costume designer Marilyn Vance sewed two dresses together to make the polka dot embellished piece. For more casual wear, Andie embraced oversized proportions and playful accessories like brooches, earrings and hats. Take a look at more 1980’s fashion from ‘Pretty in Pink’ below.
