Why the Beauty Looks Take Inspiration From the 1990s
The most exciting part about participating in a film about a high school prom is taking inspiration from your own experience at the prom when conceptualizing the characters.
"I went to prom in 1991, and the '90s are full-on back with the kids," Chris Clark, the film's lead hairstylist, told POPSUGAR. "I did reference some '90s stuff with a couple of the characters and just what that meant for the prom and what that meant for me as a gay person, and what that felt like in the early '90s and taking that as inspiration."
Clark mostly referenced '90s themes in characters like Shelby (Sofia Deler) and Kaylee (Logan Riley Hassel), which he noted was "kind of a juxtaposition to Emma, who's very naturalistic."
