For whatever reason in 1982, Hollywood made a sequel to Grease starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. The film unrealistically takes place two years after the first film and follows Sandy’s cousin, Michael, and his experiences trying to acclimate to the iconic Rydell High. Of course, there are T-Birds and Pink Ladies which Michael attempts to join by becoming a mysterious, motorcycle riding bad boy. Michelle Pfeiffer plays Stephanie Zinone the Pink Lady whom Michael falls in love with.
The movie is comically bad, but one of those movies I can’t resist watching. Even Netflix recommends it to me with immense judgement. The songs are questionable and are much bigger ear worms than the original. But there is one thing the film has going for it: Stephanie’s style. For 1961, her style certainly doesn’t fit the bill. It definitely has 1980s looking pieces and inspiration. Stephanie dresses a bit more masculine and relaxed than a girl in 1961 would have, and there are many more sequins. One of my favorite looks is Stephanie’s “Cool Rider” look because it is all black and simple but edgy. See the video at the bottom
While Grease 2 isn’t the best movie in the world, Stephanie’s style is one thing to admire about it. Plus it’s incredibly easy to pull off many of these looks today with more modern pieces and still look incredibly cool.
