I have loved the movie “Pretty In Pink” since I first saw it 25+ years ago.
You see as a child, I was in love with fashion design and routinely called my Barbies by the name Andi. So this movie brought together all of my childhood loves. It was meant to be. The only thing about the movie that bothered me was the dress at the end. I watched the movie last night and it continued to disappoint. She had all of those great materials and could use them in any way she wanted. And this is what she decided on? Really?
So I thought, what would I have done differently? Here are some ideas I threw together. And remember, it was the 80’s!
The fabric list
two more ideas….
staying truer to her original design- with some slight modifications
Love your designs – my favorite is the polka dot strapless with sweetheart neckline. I never liked how the dress hung on her – but all of your options accentuate the waist – which would have looked great on Andie Walsh. Perhaps a career in Wardrobe/Costume Design is in your future … 😉
I just know Disney and Universal are calling for you—haha. Love you.
They are ALL so much better than the movie dress. That should be a Project Runway challenge – remake the hideous PinP prom dress
that would be a GREAT PR challenge!
