Remember the Eighties’ John Hughes movie, “Pretty in Pink”? I hesitate to call it “a cult classic”, because there are just too many of us John Hughes fans out there.
Every time I hear or read the name REBECCA TAYLOR, I’m reminded of this film and how pretty Molly Ringwald looked in her do it yourself pink dress – the marriage of a Mall atrocity and a beautiful vintage gown.
Okay, so Ms. Taylor does not ONLY work with a pink-tinged color palette, but you can always count on her designs to be pretty and to make you feel like the fresh ingenue Miss Ringwald looked back in 1986.
IF this film would be reshot today, and the late Mr. Hughes were still alive, and Molly Ringwald was a teen, she might just wear this pretty ensemble to the prom. I’d put “Duckie” [Jon Cryer] in what else? Duckie Brown, of course.
Below, a few of Rebecca Taylor’s best designs from the past few seasons.
Just a little refresher!
