Spotlight: The Breakfast Club- Molly Ringwald

I just watched the classic film "The Breakfast Club" (1985), a coming-of-age story about a group of young adults, stuck together in the same room because of a Saturday detention session. All the members of the Breakfast Club come from different cliques in the school, and throughout the afternoon, gradually get to know each other, discovering dark secrets about each member and finally - realising that, in fact - they're not really that different from each other at all.

All of the characters are interesting and allows one's heart-strings to be tugged. However, one character struck me most with her beauty, class and style : Molly Ringwald as Clare, Miss Popular/ Prom queen.

She's so stylish and gorgeous! I absolutely adore the styles of the 80s, and her character in The Breakfast Club really epitomises the style that I find so chic and .... vintage. Did I mention how much I love her hair too?

Sometimes, I wish I was an 80s kid... sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era, because so many styles I adore were from the good old days. There's just a unique vintage feel to everything old, isn't there? Plus beauty before was the "natural" look - makeup was minimal, pastel, pale and complimented instead of enhanced. Nowadays, it's all about enhancement, maximising your best bits, whereas before people didn't try as hard to make their assets better.

Maybe it's time for some 80s-inspired outfit ideas next time... meanwhile check out the trailer if you haven't watched this classic film yet.

  3. The Breakfast Club is one of my favorite films. It's so tragic and I love how each character has very different problems that all teenagers can relate to. I found it especially realistic, when the students admitted that on Monday none of them would talk to each other since they all ran in different cliques.
