"Pretty in Pink" stars Andrew McCarthy, Molly Ringwald, and Jon Cryer.
A pair of fashion designers, a museum curator, a costume designer, a film historian and our fashion critic list their top picks.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy, designers of the Rodarte fashion line
The Mulleavy sisters, known as Rodarte, name-checked "Donnie Darko" and "The Man Who Fell to Earth" as inspirations for their spring 2009 collection. "With film, you get these visual references and concepts and dialogue, which inspire investigation," Kate says.
"Pretty in Pink" (1986)Growing up, it was the ultimate film. Molly Ringwald had jeans with flowers all over them, and making her own prom dress was both great and a disaster. [Pictured here.]
"Last Year at Marienbad" (1961) The chateau and the clothes are gorgeous. Coco Chanel did all the couture.
"Week-end" (1967) It's blood-soaked and anti-consumer, but it also celebrates the hierarchy of luxury. The fashion is amazing.
"Hellraiser" (1987) The aesthetics of this movie are amazing, and we just love the look of Pinhead.
"The Garden of the Finzi-Continis" (1970) It's so chic. Lives are collapsing in this time of political strife, and everyone looks perfect.
