Act cool, look cool, be cool. Til’ death do us part, think Pink! – Pink Lady pledge

Pink lady rules

Rule 1: Obey the Pink Lady Pledge: Act cool, look cool, be cool. Til’ death do us part, think Pink!

Rule 2: At no time is a Pink Lady to become romantically involved with a non-T-Bird member. Restriction is rescinded only after graduation from school or expulsion. A Pink Lady will not date a: Jock, nerd, Preppie, anybody non-cool, or member of a rival school or gang. T-Birds, not Nerds!

Rule 3: The Pink Lady jacket symbolizes that the wearer is the girlfriend / consort of a T-Bird member. Upon leaving the Pink Ladies under duress (violation of rules 1 and 2, expulsion, illness, death, school transfer) or personal choice, wearer must return the jacket to the T-Birds to avoid damaging said T-Birds’ reputations. `They got a Rep to protect’. Rep is everything.

Rule 4: A Pink Lady must present herself in appropriate attire at school at all times – Pink Lady jacket a must! Flashy, seductive costumes are not allowed, as they allow non-T-Bird students (and other males, staff included) to see what is for T-Bird eyes only. Seductive attire appropriate only to be worn at functions if accompanied by their T-Bird escort / boyfriend.

Rule 5: A Pink Lady is to have a cigarette and matches / lighter on her at all times, for herself – cigarette equals `cool’ – plus her fellow Pink Ladies and T-Birds (and favored Rydell staff) who might perchance wish to bum a smoke.

Rule 6: No Pink Lady is allowed to interfere with other Pink Lady to T-Bird relationships. If the leader of the T-Birds is spoken for, unattached Pink Lady is not permitted to trespass on fellow Pink Lady relationship. If the leader of the T-Birds is available (Pink Lady girlfriend leaves – see rule #3), unattached Pink Lady may make advances on unclaimed T-Bird leader. See rule #4, apply it. The prettier the Pink Lady, the more interested the unattached T-Bird will be.

Rule 7: Returning to Rule #2, Fraternization outside of T-Birds, if all members of the T-Birds are accounted for – have Pink Lady girlfriends – unattached Pink Lady must remain single. Addendum: If unattached Pink Lady has interest in non-T-Bird student, and wishes to pursue relationship with said student, see rule #3.

Rule 8. Contrary to popular belief, (see Rydell school year 1958-1959 (Grease), Premarital `coupling’ (Sliding into home base – thank you, Louis DiMucci) isn’t a requirement for being a Pink Lady. Just don’t die a virgin or die wearing your mother’s underwear.

Rule 9: If you’re a non-romantic friend of the Pink Ladies, you’re a friend for life. Friendship (non-fraternizational) may include nerd/brainiac (good for assistance with essays), and jock. NOT allowed: Gossip Girls (Patty Simcox), or annoying cheerleaders (Stacie & Gracie).

ADDITIONAL – Added June 16, 1962 If unattached Pink Lady meets and falls for former-nerd-turned-badass-biker, who saved the butts of T-Birds and Rydell students, fraternization rules rescinded!! (Co-signed by Johnny, Goose, Louis, Davey, Stephanie, Sharon, Paulette, Rhonda, Dolores).

I LOVE THIS APP, SHOPLOOK is the NEW Polyvore! For somebody who has a disability this app is great because I don’t need to take photos of myself and change into copious outfits have which would be really difficult to me due to my dexterity and I would have to ask for help dressing. With this app because I can create looks for you and I’m not wasting energy.

I totally recommend this for fashion bloggers especially if you have a disability and it’s hard to dress yourself or go shopping or numerous outfits.

My favourite Makeup Brands

  2. Max factor – Makeup stylist to Marylin  Monroe.
  3. NYX – Their range is budget friendly with amazing stay power and a great range of liners and eyeshades.
  4. MUA – Their foundation would stay put in a monsoon and the powder leaves me glow free. The Lux lipstick has a Great Gatsby vibe.
  5. Maybeline – Every girls first foundation was the Dream Matte Mousse. I love their Contor sticks as their so creamy and blends in so well. Need I mention the blushed nudes pallet? 
  6. I use the organic company for my skin care routines.

The Fashion expert: An interview with Zahra Parry

Hi Z, so what made you want to be fashion blogger and makeup artist? I realised I wanted to be a make-up artist when I applied for an assistant MUA role for a short film, I’d always had an interest in make-up and was obsessed with putting it on myself, so I decided to apply and I worked under a professional for a week, I loved the craft of it and even more so the creative environment of being on set. Fashion blogging is somewhat new to me, I just found I was getting a lot of questions about where I got my clothes and getting a lot of compliments over the years on my style. So I’ve just started posting #ootd’s on Instagram at the moment but eventually, I’d like to start blogging about fashion tips and make fashion hauls.

What’s your top five beauty products? 1. Revlon colour stay foundation, this is my day to day foundation and It’s amazing because it’s affordable, full coverage and durable! 2. Mac strobe cream– I love this as a primer before foundation it gives you a dewy finish and makes your skin glow! 3. Urban decay all nighter setting spray– this is a lifesaver, by far the most effective of setting sprays! 4. Becca cosmetics champagne pop highlighter– I have no words because it’s so beautiful, natural looking highlighter that really accentuates the high-points of your face. 5. mac studio fix pressed powder– essential on set! male or female, this powder is perfect for taking out the shine or giving the the cast a flawless finish on screen.

Where do you mainly get your clothes from? I previously worked for Topshop, most of of-of my clothes are from there because of the cheeky discount, but I also love Zara and H&M.

What’s your favourite fashion trend for autumn? I love love LOVE the check pieces coming through this autumn, it screams clueless and that’s one of my favourite films!

5) Makeup/style inspirations? Style inspo is really hard because my style changes with every season but I would say probably Olivia Palermo for A/W, Vanessa Hudgens for S/S. Makeup inspo would have to be some of the looks created by @makeupbyariel on Shay Mitchell, and @makeupbymario on Kim Kardashian.

what’s your worst fashion disaster? I’ve had so many, mainly because I’m so clumsy! The worst would have to be when I wore a leather skirt and fishnets to Radio1’s Big Weekend back in north Wales, trying to achieve that rocky/festival look I had thought that a leather skirt was a great idea for a day of 30 degrees heat I chafed so much my legs started bleeding and I had to go home and miss RIHANNA!

what’s the worst makeup trend? Contour, I feel strongly that contour is something you should only apply if really needed or in a drag show.

what’s your dream job? I’m still not sure, I just KNOW that I’m

supposed to be in television and media. I’m one of those people who wants to be good at everything so I have a choice!

favourite fashion magazine? Back in the day, I used to read LOOK magazine weekly! Now I don’t read most magazines because the content is so extremely focused on women’s physical appearance and celebrity sex lives and scandals that it’s so uninteresting to me. I watch a lot of vloggers and read blogs instead

contouring yay or nay? Yay on Drag queens, Nay otherwise.
