My hubby came out with this cool concept for my blog here which is to post weekly films that inspire me style wise, in art, in inspirational quotes, and more. I know you’ve seen my past blog posts about horror films and clothing that inspire me but I wanted this to be a little different. These films I’m going to post are for inspiration whether it’s a makeup look, a time period, fashion, music, or other things. I do get my personal style from many different formats.
This weeks film pick is JOHN WATER’S, CRY-BABY! I’ve loved this film since I was little. How can you not love Johnny Depp as a sexy DRAPE? I love the fashion style of this film set in 1960, with a greaser and rockabilly look that is very hot and sexy and I would wear every DRAPE outfit in the movie, especially compared to the boring straight-laced sick WIFFLE boys.
One of the best lines in CRYBABY is when Ricki Lake says to pretty square Alison for the first time meeting her saying, “First thing a Cry baby girl learns is, our busoms are our weapons.” Classic line. And when the girls give Alison her a bad beauty makeup look was awesome.
Besides the awesome fashion style, the music soundtrack is amazing and I love John Waters. If you haven’t seen this cult classic film, it’s definitely a must-see!
