Iconic Dress: Molly Ringwald in 'Pretty in Pink'

Molly Ringwald was a teen icon in the 1980s and was a member of the 'Brat Pack', a group of popular young actors of the time. She starred in a number of cult films, including Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), and Pretty in Pink (1986). This pink prom dress she wore in Pretty in Pink inspired girls everywhere and carried the message that old clothing could be made new again. In the film, Ringwald's character Andie is poor but fashion-conscious, and creates her dress from her friend's old prom gown. We love that this dress represents many aspects of 80s fashion and that it encouraged women to embrace vintage and get creative with their clothing.
