Molly Ringwald/"Getting the Pretty Back"

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I'm gearing up to host an event this week for the iconic Molly Ringwald to celebrate her national besteller Getting the Pretty Back!
A woman (and fabulous mommy!) after my own heart who really just gets being uniquely your own in fashion and lifestyle.

I stayed up late last night finishing her book and just ate it up, cover-to-cover. Did you know she had a heavy hand in styling some of her infamous characters such as Andie in Pretty in Pink? She made thrift and vintage cool before it even was cool, scouring vintage as a way of self expression and artistic history, in a time when no one really got it. Get this - while thrifting in her teens, she found a lace sheath dress that previously belonged to Eleanor Roosevelt when she was a debutant! I mean, c'mon! How cool is that?

Molly - we adore you. And for those of us who can actually see past the sixteen year old girl you used to be (fashionable, iconic, and brave as you were...) we're pretty damn inspired by the grown up, wise and still wickedly beautiful woman you've become.
