Generally, after watching a John Waters movie, I start screaming “JOHN PLEASE MARRY ME ADOPT ME CAN I BE YOUR FAG HAG?” and carry on doing so for a few days. Put it this way, if I watch too many John Waters movies, my neighbours are going to call the police.
The best thing about John Waters is that he also has the best sense of style, which transpires in his films. So without taking it too literally and dressing everyday like Divine, I think a few elements of my wardrobe are directly inspired by his aesthetic.
This is what I found to recreate the general trashy 50s & 60s style from his movies… Add a lot of red lipstick, a crazy bouffant hairdo & some attitude and BOOM!
