Meanwhile, in I Know What You Did Last Summer, the last girl Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) loves a simple aesthetic that suits the girl next door. Danny Pellegrino, a pop culture enthusiast and host of the Everything Iconic podcast, said: “Her last look was a [top]. “She also uses her wardrobe at the end of the movie to escape the killer, when she’s trapped in a boat – so the outfit becomes a useful part of her survival.” In the film’s sequel, singer Brandy joins Hewitt as the last girl. Pellegrino said: “Brandy’s style was so great throughout that movie. “I always felt we were robbed for not getting a third movie with Brandy and Hewitt.”
It’s no surprise that there are top stylish women in the horror genre, as whimsical motifs have always made their way into the haute couture arena. Designers are often amused by the macabre. During his spring 2000 season, Raf Simons designed an entire line of Camp Crystal Lake tees men’s clothing, an homage to the setting of the classic horror movie Friday the 13th. Prints Prada’s fall 2019 graphic serves as a tribute to Frankenstein. For the 2020 resort, Moschino’s Jeremy Scott even designed a variety of different scary movie-inspired wars, including a Dracula shirt and a spider web print skirt.
Just this past spring of 2023, the last girls were one of the main inspirations for Interior designers Lily Miesmer and Jack Miner. “If it shows up on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s high art for us,” Miesmer said. While designing the restructured separators, they took cues from the slashed pieces that senior girls typically display. “We saw our fair share of girls in the end. The visual film is priceless – a girl covered in blood, whose eyes can only be seen with the whites of her eyes, is a forever favorite,” said Miesmer. “To some extent, we all feel like the last of the girls today, always escaping some apocalyptic monster, narrowly holding a saw. The muddy spirit of the collection reflects this sense of always winning over the devil.”
Do the costumes featured in the slasher movie have a deeper meaning? Pellegrino certainly thinks so. Pellegrino said: “The style of the last girls is always memorable because viewers associate whatever they are wearing at the end of the film with a theme of survival. “Jamie Lee Curtis’s blue button [on Halloween] is so memorable because we associate it with her old Michael Myers.” He also adds that the clothes the heroines wear can even make us want to love them more. In rare cases, the girls who aren’t the last – like the dusty girls – have even better style than the top ladies. “Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character in I Know What You Did Last Summer has that incredible chase scene at her sister’s store as she wears a gorgeous blue dress and throughout the movie, her style much more unique than Jennifer Love Hewitt’s character,” Pellegrino said. “Audiences made her the last girl for a variety of reasons — one of which I think is because of the unique style throughout.”
Pellegrino considers this always a purposeful outfit choice. “Drew Barrymore has the most memorable style from the Scream series, though not the last girl,” says Pellegrino. “The Scarface-inspired blonde bob — paired with a simple cream sweater that looks like home in a Nancy Meyers movie — is one of the most iconic horror movie styles ever. age. Bright and cozy colors contrast with the bloody and unsettling devastation of the character. ” So the next time you’re watching a horror movie, notice what the women are wearing — you can guess who’s alive.
