THE MOVIE: "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
THE SCRIPT: Buffy (Kristy Swanson, pictured), a high school girl with shopping on the brain, turns out to be marked for greatness in vampire-offing skills. The undead types she encounters include Paul Reubens, Rutger Hauer and Donald Sutherland. Pike (Luke Perry) finds her macho technique cool.
THE LOOK: Grace Kelly/Valley Gal. You can bet that Buffy and her girlfriends are no fashion slaves--they bypassed the gloomy black-on-black coffeehouse look and instead discovered acid colors, flower prints, Pucci and polka dots, all with a strong '60s influence. One of Buffy's sweaters looks like it was inspired by the amoeba flowers that festooned the set of "The Dating Game."
SCENE STEALER: Costume designer Marie France really lets loose by pairing Buffy's cool blond looks with a dreamy white point d'esprit and tulle prom gown, the essence of femininity. She may be reminiscent of Grace Kelly in her princess phase, but underneath she's wearing ultra-clunky white Doc Martens.
