Tim Burton – 1996
Mars Attacks! is a fantastic Tim Burton directed effort, which is hugely underrated. It doesn’t get enough appreciation.
The cast on display here is out of this world – Jack Nicholson, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Annette Bening, Tom Jones, Martin Short, Danny DeVito, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Pam Grier and Michael J. Fox – and they all seem to be having a great…

This is true for every relationship. Whether it is your husband, partner, friend, calling in life, your Labrador, or the beautiful sun we greet each day, be prepared… to fall in love again.

I always enjoy the story of how Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, goes back to 1955 in a time-traveling Delorean, but I spend a lot of time thinking while I watch how much I enjoy the costumes re worn by the young women. You see here Lea Thompson as Lorraine in her prom dress with Crispin Glover as George McFly who eventually becomes her date at the prom (watch the film to find out why that sentence makes any sense). Deborah Lynn Scott made the costumes and all the scenes with the high school girls feature the dresses or separates that had the silhouette then popular: tiny waists and flared skirts.
Strapless dresses were very also popular during the 1950s as were all the petticoats that you see under the prom dress which created an even larger silhouette. Even everyday clothing for girls for high school was more formal because the occasions of dress required that school clothing be as serious as a workplace. Though some playfulness in color and detail was allowed on account of the youth of the wearers.
For an everyday dress, see the gingham dress in the other photo which is cut on the bias and marked with harmonized ribbon and contrasting white trim on the collar and cuffs. You can see the charm of the look even if you aren’t keen on going back to petticoats.
