'Can I still borrow your underpants?'

Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald met up at the 36th AFI Life Achievement Award tribute to Warren Beatty a few weeks ago in Hollywood. No telling if they chatted about a possible "Sixteen Candles" sequel, something Molly has been talking up for years now.

"It was something that I definitely wanted to do, but John Hughes wasn't interested, and I didn't feel comfortable doing it without his involvement," she recently told the media. "If we can get John to agree, I think it would be great. ... To me, the movie is '80s perfection."

Speaking of Molly, she's back in the spotlight again these days. And not for her signature red hair, film roles or enduring label as the "freckled face of the 80s" -- it's for a new reputation: Fashion diva.

The Los Angeles Times recently profiled Molly on the eve of her debut on TV's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." In it, the writer follows Molly on a shopping trip during her return to L.A.

"I never thought of myself as a style icon," Ringwald tells the Times. "I wore all that vintage because my parents kept me on an allowance ... My style was based on necessity."

With the return of 80s nostalgia and fashion -- along with an economic recession -- we'll all be "going vintage" again. (Click here to read the full article.)
