Some sort of fashion-y overall creation (this from Washborn) that can be torn away to reveal a DTV-ready costume.

A Boy by Band of Outsiders plaid skirt—key component of the Holy Grace uniform that passes for a fashion risk at tryouts.

In Character: Linda Barrett

The magic of Brad Hamilton’s dream girl is that she somehow appeared wholesome even when you knew she wasn’t. The perfect smile, the chipmunk cheeks, the plastic barrettes, and her all-American wardrobe—they were enough to convince you that she couldn’t possibly be one of the fastest things about Ridgemont High. —erica

A dark denim Current/Elliott jacket that screams, “I am the girl next door.”

A striped Hellz Bellz top that woos the customers at Swenson’s Ice-Cream Parlor.

In Character: Tess McGill

As Working Girl's heroine puts it, she has “a head for business and a bod for sin,” and her wardrobe alludes to her feminine wiles (and the thigh highs and garter belt she wears daily—come on).

An off-the-shoulder Black Halo dress that goes well with a new haircut and too much tequila.

Ginormous LnA glasses that play up the whole doe-eyed boss lady thing.

A white silk dress from Kain that is perfect for wedding crashing and for falling in love alongside the research of your M&A deal.
