Interview magazine was started by Andy Warhol, the artist famous for his Campbell soup cans. In its early days, Warhol gave it away for free, but by the mid-1980s, the magazine was a glossy must-read devoted to trendy celebrities.
In 1985, there was no bigger "It Girl" than a teenager who wowed audiences everywhere with her iconic roles in The Breakfast Club and 16 Candles. The movies, which also launched the careers of other young Hollywood actors like Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson, really made a star out of Molly Ringwald.
Ringwald was filming Pretty in Pink and 17 years old when this photo was taken. It was one of four, all showing Ringwald in a classic Hollywood pose that accompanied an article about the teenage celebrity. The caption for the original photo quoted Ringwald saying: "The '40s look is really kind of cool: going off to war, entertaining the troops. I guess time tends to romanticize things.”
It certainly does! So indulge your nostalgia or curiosity by checking out these Pretty in Pink need-to-knows below.
