We're All Painted Up Like Trash for John Waters's Cry-Baby (1990)
Play • 49 min

To celebrate the newly opened John Waters: Pope of Trash exhibition at the Academy Museum here in LA, Marie and Blaire are paying tribute to their favorite Filth Elder with Cry-Baby! We talk about the work of the late Van Smith, the costume designer for all of Waters's movies, the enduring style icon that is Wanda Woodward, and the timeless appeal of a black leather jacket. We also discuss the VMAs, Gilmore Girls fall fashion inspo, the search for a good pair of pants for hip-hop dance class, and more!
