A reimagining of classic teen movie characters as Instagram aesthetics is the dreamiest thing ever
Molly Ringwald for the Instagram age
by Amanda Ross
It's a universal truth that every human being on the planet loves classic teen movies from the 80s and 90. Yes, every single human — even the ones who don't have electricity.
And if you were to draw a Venn diagram of people who love brat pack movies and people who spend their days looking at dreamy aesthetic pictures on Tumblr, it'd probably just look like a circle. Today, my absolute favorite Twitter/Instagram user @90swomen posted a series of made-up Instagram accounts depicting our most beloved teen scene kings and queens as users, each with specific, unique, and envy-inducing aesthetics to fit their personalities. The pictures were created by Tumblr user @Warhol28, and yes, her blog is as dreamy as you'd expect.
There's the Breakfast Club gang in all their angsty glory — only John "Love of My Life" Bender is missing but if we're staying true to character, he probably wouldn't even have a Facebook, much less a carefully curated Insta:
Also included is the cast of characters from Clueless, and you know they're all completely perfect:
Of course the batshit crazy characters in Heathers have the best aesthetics:
Finally, we have the Ferris Bueller gang which you know is excellent because the entire movie looks like stills from the coolest person you know's Tumblr. Can I be Sloan now, please?
OK, now I have to go delete everything on my Instagram and start over.
