Prom Style Icon: The Lisbon Sisters
It's no secret that Sophia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides has reached a cult-like status with teenage girls everywhere—and for good reason. The five Lisbon girls' lives, experiences, struggles, and moments of desperation resonate deep within anyone who's ever been a 13-year-old girl. When school hunk Trip Fontaine gets permission to bring Lux to the prom, the girls get to escape from their parent's strict ruling for just one night. We've picked a few items that we think the Lisbon sisters would have enjoyed before the missed curfew and inevitable crackdown.
KNT By Kova & T Chiffon Floral Maxi Dress
Mrs. Lisbon would never tolerate anything too revealing (she'll add an inch to the bust line and two to the waist and hems). We think Lux would look perfect in this floral maxi, complete with sheer flutter cap sleeves. We also found a few choices for Mary
, and Therese
—we'd like to see her try to turn those into sacks!
The Lisbon girls may be doomed for total isolation but this free-spirited floral crown will help them let go for the night and dream of a better tomorrow.
The Lisbon girls should have made it a point to capture their entire prom night—if not for themselves then for the neighborhood boys who would try to figure them out for years after their deaths (but never could).
