Geek Of The Week: Andie Walsh

In the 1986 movie Pretty in Pink, Molly Ringwald plays Andie Walsh, a geekier and not-so-popular girl in high school. Andie spends most of her time with the insecure and nerdy Duckie who has a huge crush on her. But when the rich and popular Blaine asks her out, she puts their differences aside and goes on the date. Andie knew she was special and deserved everything life had to offer. Her confidence was her best weapon against societies pre-conceived judgements. Now this is what I call geeky chic!

I completely agree. She should have ended up with Duckie...

When I was a kid, I loved the prom dress she made out of the other prom dresses. Now I realize that it was a shapeless, ugly sack. Also, I totally think that Andie should've ended up with Duckie instead of boring liar Blaine. I still love this movie, though.
