Not with “Euphoria”. This award-winning, high-profile teen streaming drama has spawned an entire fashion subset on TikTok, largely featuring what appear to be efforts to wear the smallest, most conscious amount of clothing in the world. possible body. Not so with “The Breakfast Club,” the 1985 John Hughes film in which Molly Ringwald canonized the prom queen stereotype.

There’s a reason the prom scene in “Carrie,” with its image of the titular character in her evening dress and blood-soaked crown, has entered the pantheon of pop culture.
