Jem and the Holograms is the latest eighties throwback to hit the big screen. Based on the sci-fi animation series Jem, which ran from ’85-’88, the live action version has an all-star cast we can’t wait to see in action.
In the new movie, Jem goes viral after channeling her feelings into an emotional YouTube performance (very 2015). Considering YouTube is where the likes of Justin Bieber and Troye Sivan were discovered, it feels like an appropriate update.
To celebrate Jem’s return, we’re checking out the red carpet style of the film’s stars with three looks inspired by Aubrey Peeples, Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald. From red dresses to fabulous skirts, they’ve got it all!
If Aubrey Peeples’ impressive singing voice and starry-eyed nature rings a bell with you, that’s because you might have seen her play the troubled country-pop singer Layla Grant in the hit show Nashville. Fans of the show, myself included, can’t wait to see her take the mic as Jem. Musical talent isn’t the only thing this girl’s got!
Her red carpet style is pretty on point too. To copy her style, pair this simple South Woven Jersey Top with these retro-looking All Over Lace Culottes from So Fabulous. Accessorise with this COAST Tassel Necklace, Mixed Hardware Embellished Party Clutch and throw on these Glamorous Caged Heel Sandals to finish off this fab new look.
The ever-cool Juliette Lewis can do no wrong in the music and drama scene. Her fashion sense is also something to get excited about as it’s edgy, but classy. How does she do it?! Well, for starters, she goes for something amazing like this Little Mistress Split Maxi Dress paired with classy Mini Platform Sandals and blings it up with some sparkly accessories.
These Johnny Loves Rosie Jasmine Earrings and Animal Print Clutch Bag are two great choices that’ll add a bit of pazow to the outfit. For a make-up look as fierce as Juliette’s, use this Bourjois Smoky Stories Eyeshadow along with this Rimmel Scandaleyes Jumbo Eyeliner. For those classic red lips, go with Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick.
This effortless look from Molly is great for any occasion as well as any age group and figure type. Start with this simple Black Longline Vest Top from So Fabulous and add some fun and girliness with this lovely Little Mistress Floral Print Skirt while keeping the look cool and edgy with this Leather Biker Jacket from V by Very.
To give yourself a nice bit of glam, add this Oasis Torque Statement Necklace. Although not exactly a necessity in Ireland right now, a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses are always a great addition to an outfit. To complete your Molly-inspired look, add on this Oasis Jamie Suede Crossbody Bag and Clarks Dazzle Strappy Heeled Sandals. Now you’re ready to rock!
