Let's face it — pink is having a MAJOR moment right now. With millennial pink basically being the only hue anyone ever talks about, it would be a disservice to not discuss the important pink moments in film history. From "Legally Blonde" to "Mean Girls" to "Grease," there's A LOT to choose from — and we're glad pink power is here to stay.
Elle Woods wore A LOT of pink in "Legally Blonde." She proved pink was suitable for ANY occasion.
... slaying in the courtroom...
For Elle, wearing pink meant staying true to herself and beating the odds, which is an inspiring message to get behind.
... or hanging out with your friends. Pink can do literally anything.
Just ask the Pink Ladies, the fiercest clique in Rydell history.
Although everyoneeee talked about Sandy in "Grease," I always wanted to be a Pink Lady. They oozed confidence and coolness.
Although most people associate pink with sweetness, this legendary group showed that pink can be BADASS.
But you couldn't just throw on a neckerchief and join the crew. Pink Lady status had to be EARNED.
Why do you think it took MOST of the movie for Sandy to become a Pink Lady?
And never forget the original unicorn hair icon: FRENCHIE.
Though her sherbert pink hair was an accident, she was *definitely* ahead of her time.
She'd be the coolest girl on Instagram in 2017.
Speaking of ahead of her time: Let's discuss Molly Ringwald's prom dress in "Pretty and Pink."
Hello, DIY dream. Do you see that high collar? Do you see that lace? She proved that '80s fashion wasn't all wild.
Ringwald's character proved that the old fashion rule — redheads should NEVER wear pink — was outdated 30 years ago.
Even though pink is sometimes portrayed as a "weak" color, it's really all about standing out. Pink can be really powerful!
And when it comes to powerful, it doesn't get ANY more powerful than Regina George and her pink-loving band of Plastics.
"Mean Girls" is a movie that literally centers around pink.
"Mean Girls" first introduced us to the fashion rule by which we live our entire lives:
After all, the shade can stand for conformity.
In a world that associates pink with sweet femininity, The Burn Book was aggressive fuchsia evilness.
Ms. Norbury's signature shade of salmon was wise.
She's a pusher.
Regina's mom (hi, Amy Poehler) in her pink velour sweatsuit? Well, sometimes pink is just hilarious.
The Plastics proved that pink can be powerful. What you do with that power is up to you.
The most powerful student at Hogwarts, Hermione, showcased the transformative powers of pink.
Our girl was mostly about earth tones — but this pink ombre Yule Ball gown made the world see her in a whole new way.
She SLAYED us all with those sleeves and that silk fabric.
Hermione showed that any girl deserves to feel her best, and you should never fear taking a style risk.
If you want to make a major statement, pink is the color to turn to.
Victor Krumm never stood a chance.
But let's look back at CLASSIC pink moments. Audrey Hepburn's iconic film "Funny Face" has A WHOLE SONG devoted to pink.
From the balloons to the ballgowns, I want it ALL.
Pink accessories, too? Why not! More is more!
And THEN Hepburn stepped out in her max slay, and what color was she wearing? Oh yes. PINK.
Oh, you thought that Hepburn was done? NOPE. Never forget this killer "Breakfast at Tiffany's" look.
You see that pink tiara? Holly Golightly was a queen all day everyday.
Holly turned to pink for its glamorous properties.
And really, if you're going to cry, shouldn't you at least cry in a pink tiara?
She was ready to embrace hot pink's seductive powers, and get ready to SCAM.
Her reward? A rich husband and piles of diamonds.
Madonna channeled Marilyn's fuchsia power for her "Material Girl" video.
Relive Madonna's early years in full hot pink glory.
Get the point yet? Pink can be anything we want it to be. There's literally no wrong way to wear this color.
Wear a pink tiara. Or a pink tracksuit. Or a gown and use your pink powers to scam.
Regardless, you'll definitely stand out from the crowd!
