- Thu, Feb 27, 2014 2:19 PM EST | CommentsOn February 28, 1986, John Hughes introduced a generation of Chino-wearing teenagers to the joys of vintage fashion with the release of "Pretty in Pink." Twenty-eight years later, it stands as one of the most fashionable — if underrated — films in recent history. For the uninitiated, "Pretty in Pink," follows the brainy, thrift-store loving Andie (Molly Ringwald), and her prep school romance with a "richie" named Blane (Andrew McCarthy). Their worlds clash because she wears vintage and doesn't have money, and he wears Dockers and does. Nobody wants to see them together, especially not Duckie (Jon Cryer), which makes their plans to go to prom — the most important fashion moment in high school — really complicated. The plot may sound thin, but really, "Pink" is a homage to vintage, and a smack-down of the homogeneous, country club prep style of the time. It's also a relic of an era when romantic comedies didn't devote half of their budget to designer wardrobes, but instead used crazy ingenuity to style characters. In honor of the film's birthday, we asked "Pink's" original costume designer, Marilyn Vance, to enlighten us on everything from Duckie's rockabilly inspiration to Andie's totally controversial prom dress. The first thing we learned: Molly Ringwald and Andie have very different taste. —Piper Weiss

- Wed, Feb 26, 2014 3:25 PM EST | CommentsWhen Meryl Streep accepted her third Academy Award in 2012, she arrived at the podium, practically her second home, and said “When they called my name I had this feeling I could hear half of America going, ‘Oh no! Oh come on, why her? Again!’” And with that mixture of self-depricating awareness and humor, America was reminded how very much we love her. We were also reminded how often Meryl Streep shows up on the nominee ballot. Over the past three decades she's been nominated 18 times — this year, she's up for her role in "August: Osage County" — making her the most Oscar-nominated actress of all time. She's also been thanked in Oscar speeches more than God. Really. Why not just make the golden statue in her image at this point? Here's a look at Meryl's Oscar journey, beginning 35 years ago and still going strong. —Piper Weiss
- Wed, Feb 26, 2014 8:09 PM EST | CommentsWhat happens when you give preschoolers construction paper, scissors, and tape? For most, it turns into a messy art project, but for little "Mayhem" (a nickname dubbed by her mom), it means creating the most fashionable dresses. While many 4-year-old girls are mesmerized by their sparkly tiaras and pink tutus, Mayhem’s store-bought costumes didn’t pale in comparison to the colorful paper she’d repeatedly wrap herself in. And it didn’t take long for Mayhem’s mother, a blogger identified as "Angie," to notice. Angie soon suggested that they make their own dress-up clothes and the two have put the pedal to the metal (or their hands to the scissors) ever since. “The ideas are pretty much a 50/50 split, but Mayhem constructs a lot more than most people would probably believe,” Angie told the Huffington Post. “She's literally always beside me learning something new if she's not tearing or taping or gluing while I am.” The mother-daughter duo draws inspiration from runways, award shows, movies, and other pop culture happenings. We’ve rounded up our favorite #FashionbyMayhem looks from Angie’s Instagram account. Look out, Tim Gunn — we’ve got a potential "Project Runway" star in our midst. –– Erika Ostroff, Shine Staff
