Prom Fashion Gets Creative, ‘Pretty In Pink’ Style

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today’s cutting edge, creative prom fashions are taking a snip from Molly Ringwald’s look in Pretty In Pink.

In the classic 80s prom flick, Ringwald makes her own prom dress by cutting up an old, dingy dress and turning it into a beautiful new creation.

According to writer Angel Teems of, many high school girls are pulling a Ringwald for their own proms this year and making a new gown out of an old one.

Due to the “green” environmental movement, more girls are shopping for vintage dresses at thrift stores and second-hand shops, and then altering the old duds.

Teems says, “They can cut off the poofy sleeves from an old, 80s dress and make it into a cute strapless gown. Then they can tailor a new hemline and neckline just like Molly Ringwald did in Pretty In Pink.

She says the “green” gown trend is the “new face of prom fashion,” and expects the fixer-upper style to stick around.
