Molly Ringwald and Jon Cryer in "Pretty in Pink"
How would the movie's warring richie preps and New Wave outsiders fare in today's fashion world? The big jackets and high-waisted chinos on pretty-boy Blane (Andrew McCarthy) might need an update -- or can just be recycied as women's wear -- but Duckie's (Jon Cryer) skinny jeans and Andie's (Molly Ringwald) leggings and layers have been a part of street fashion for years. See, geeks win in the end.
