The following is a list, in chronological order, of dress moments in movie history that changed my life.
I always felt like Cha Cha DiGregorio got a bad rap. She just wanted to dance. And that dress…. I wanted it more than any My Little Pony or Barbie. I imagined myself at my senior prom accepting my prom queen crown in that dress. Neither ever happened.
Pretty in Pink, in my opinion, is the no. 1 all time best 80s movie. I still shed a tear when daddy comes in with the goodwill dress for Andy to recreate . Don’t get me wrong, the dress she makes is hideous. But the idea that a girl from the wrong side of the tracks can go to prom and land the rich guy still makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
For those of you who don’t know me, I saw Titanic 8 times in the theater. I owned and wore an “I Love Leo” shirt. I went to a psychic who told me in my previous life I was a passenger on the Titanic and I asked “Was I in Steerage?”
I think I can speak for all of us when I say, the moment Laney Boggs walks down the stairs after her makeover, I stopped breathing. Remember how she used to have a PONYTAIL? The horror! Then she tweezed her unibrow and VOILA she was one hot ticket.
I mean…this is the ultimate. Too bad I had to realize that I don’t look like nor have the body of Kate Hudson to pull this dress off. But when she walks out of that apartment building I literally died. I also believed I would be a cool columnist for YM or Seventeen Magazine when I grew up. Thanks Kate Hudson for giving me unrealistic expectations.
