Starstruck: pink and purple tutu
Gillian Armstrong’s effervescent rock musical comedy Starstruck features outrageous costumes designed by Terry Ryan and Luciana Arrighi and influenced by the kitsch aesthetic of early 1980s music videos.
Jackie (played by Jo Kennedy) wears the pink and purple tutu and blue tights at the final performance in the film at the Opera House. The costume is made out of a dress belonging to Jackie’s classically stylish mother Pearl (Margo Lee). Pearl giving the dress to Jackie is symbolic of her love and greater acceptance of her daughter by the end of the film.
The bodice and tutu take Jackie’s 80s style to new heights with echoes of prom queen, new romanticism and new wave. The tutu is made up of two tulle skirts – each of them multicoloured, with sequins.
