Ball season has begun, so let’s look back at the most famous ball style in film – from Sandy in Grease to Andie’s 80s look in Pretty In Pink – for inspiration.
We might have given up on mastering the hand-jive dance as well as Sandy and Danny from Grease, but there is still hope of mimicking Sandy’s floaty prom dress.
An ’80s classic, the dress Lori Singer wore to prom has distinctive new season Gucci vibes – ruffled, colourful and off-the-shoulder.
Who needs a dress?! Cadey Heron (Lindsey Lohan) was a badass, wearing a varsity jacket, jeans, loose waves and a tiara.
Pretty In Pink
Nothing screams ’80s fashion more than Molly Ringwald’s polka dot pink dress and big hair in Pretty In Pink. We raise our hats to a teenager brave enough to wear an pink sack to prom and still find her happy ending.
Back To The Future
Lorraine Baines rocks classic American prom style – form-fitting, pink and super feminine.
There’s Something About Mary
We love Cameron Diaz’s ’70s-inspired bouncy blonde curls and flattering dress. We’re not so sure about Ben Stiller’s look though…
Never Been Kissed
Drew Barrymore’s ’80s look is probably a reminder of what not to wear.
10 Things I Hate About You
Julia Styles’ look is the epitome of the Noughties – a silk maxi dress with a cowl-neck and spaghetti straps, worn with a pashmina and a scraped back corkscrew curl updo.
