Pretty in Plaid, John Hughes RIP

Here’s how I learned about the John Hughes news today. I logged onto facebook and at least seven friends had quotes from John Hughes movies (heavily favoring Sixteen Candles, and why wouldn’t you) as their status updates. Of course, tragedy notwithstanding, I immediately thought of Jake Ryan, every girl who turned 16 in the 80’s ultimate. Even 25 years later, Jake Ryan is timeless—as is his plaid. Which brings me to Breakfast Club‘s John Bender, another gift from John Hughes. Admit it. Bender was hot. Even with the whole earring situation (are those real diamonds, Claire?). But especially because of the plaid.


  1. poor John Hughes. He was a great addition to the entertainment industry in will be missed.

  2. I loved those movies, sad to see another iconic figure pass away too soon!
