Help! Have You Seen This Dress?
Wanted: One totally ’80s prom dress last rocked by Molly “Nobody Puts Duckie in the Corner” Ringwald. You remember 1986’s swoon-worthy Pretty in Pink? Spunky Poor Girl (Miss Molly) falls for Wimpy Rich Guy (Andrew McCarthy) while wearing a self-designed frock that looks not unlike our beloved Strawberry Shortcake pillowcase from that era. Flash-forward 20 years and the dress’s whereabouts are unknown: It was purchased by an unidentified buyer at a movie props auction a while back. If you have ANY intel on the gown’s current location, please spill! Reward: Our eternal gratitude—and a pile of the awesome ’80s banana clips we wore back when we were Molly wannabes. You can either email tips to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave clues in the comments here! — Michelle Tauber
