Have you spent the past 27 years wondering where Molly Ringwald got the amazing knee-high boots she wore in The Breakfast Club? Yes? Well the star has recently joined Twitter, and one of her first acts as a member of the Twitterverse has been to reveal the source of those killer polo-style riding boots.
In response to a fan question about her character's wardrobe, Ringwald tweeted:
John Hughes and I went shopping downtown Chicago and I think we got almost everything at Ralph Lauren. Def. the boots!
There you have it folks: Ralph Lauren, purveyor of all things preppy chic. And welcome to Twitter, Molly.
