If you ever believed that you and your friends could lift the weight of a human body with only a combination of your index and middle fingers, some candles and heavy chanting, then you were probably a big fan of The Craft in the ’90s. That being the case, you definitely remember saving up for deep purple lipstick like Nancy wore in the movie. Yes, The Craft and the popularization of witch culture (eventually bleeding into fashion), saw many a pubescent girl with smudged purple lips that most likely looked more bruised than broodingly occult.

It’s been a while since Nancy and the girls did their magic, but once the spell was cast, there was no turning back. Now, witch inspired lipstick has been the calling card of many a movie star, pop singer and fashionista. Most recently, we saw Lorde clean up at the Grammys while wearing a rich shade of deep plum lipstick, and rocking a decidedly witchy vibe in her monochrome outfits and long black hair.

In celebration of our favorite witches, Lorde’s iconic Grammys wins, and the fact that we just can’t get enough plum shades on our lips, we’re taking a look at some of the best witch inspired lips of the past few years. These are some babes who know how to exfoliate.

The Fault In Our Stars Trailer Is Making It Very Hard To Type Through Our Tears

“I can’t picture it as a movie, but I’m also very very close to the story, and I’ve been working on it for 10 years, so for me it’s a novel.

“I can’t picture it as a movie, but I’m also very very close to the story, and I’ve been working on it for 10 years, so for me it’s a novel. But if the right people come along and can picture it that way, that would be awesome,” that’s what John Green told me back in January 2012, on the day his book, The Fault in Our Stars, hit shelves. Well, after seeing the trailer, we are pretty sure that “the right people” came along to turn this devastating book about kids living with (and adamantly not just dying of) cancer.

I’m going to take a minute to flip back through the novel and see just how many of the lines in the trailer are quotes directly from the book, because there are a lot of them. That alone does not make for a good adaptation, mind you. But there are other things that give us clues that Ansel Elgort, Shailene Woodley and director Josh Boone really get this story. There’s that moment when Hazel calls herself a “grenade” and Gus kinda gulps in response… and there is, of course, one of everyone’s favorite quotes: “OK?” “OK.” If there are typos in this post, I apologize. There’s some dust in my eyes.

Which brings me to one more thing that John Green said in that interview, which feels like it happened so long ago. I asked him if he was ever tempted to write a story that is, well, a little bit less heart-wrenching?

“You have no idea how sad I wanted it to be,” he said. “My responsibility is to try to tell true stories. To me a true story is always hopeful, but never simply, uncomplicatedly happy.”

Now back to watching this trailer 560 times more as I wait for the movie’s June release.

15 Years Later: She’s All That Cast Remember That Epic Prom Scene

The year was 1999 and it felt like anything could happen: Following a string of successful teen films in 1998, the teen era was officially back. To help kick things off in the final year before the Millennium was She’s All That, a sleeper hit that featured an ensemble cast, including Freddie Prinze, Jr

MSDSHAL EC004 The year was 1999 and it felt like anything could happen: Following a string of successful teen films in 1998, the teen era was officially back. To help kick things off in the final year before the Millennium was She’s All That, a sleeper hit that featured an ensemble cast, including Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook. The film told the story of a girl with a ponytail, Laney (Cook), who became the subject of a bet that Zack’s (Prinze, Jr.) scheme to turn any girl into prom queen. The success of She’s All That introduced fans to a pre-Fast & The Furious Paul Walker, made Prinze the most desirable young man in Hollywood, and thanks to the iconic scene of Cook walking down the stairs in a little red dress, everyone was singing Sixpence None The Richer‘s “Kiss Me.” On the 15th anniversary of the film’s release, Dulé Hill, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe and Clea DuVall share memories from the set, dancing at prom and working with Walker.

Dancing At Prom

The film’s most iconic scene is undoubtedly the prom sequence, during which everyone performs that same choreographed number led by Usher. The cast reveals that the scene required weeks of prep and was choreographed by Adam Shankman, the now-famous movie director and reality competition judge.

Jodi Lyn O’Keefe (Taylor Vaughan): ”We all just know this routine?!” Dulé Hill (Preston): “The choreographer was Adam Shankman [Rock of Ages, So You Think You Can Dance].” Clea DuVall (Misty): “I only worked with Rachel. I popped in, was an asshole to her and just left. So I never got to be part of the fun high school stuff.” O’Keefe: “It was a lot more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Most of my laughing happened then. I did not do the greatest job the first couple of times through that routine. I was down on the ground more than I wanted to be.” Hill: “I don’t know what conversations Freddie Prinze had [with producers to get out of it]. It’s funny because they had myself, Gabrielle Union and Lil’ Kim doing a lot of the dancing. We’re like, ‘Wait a second, are all the black people doing the dancing?’” O’Keefe: “I just remember I had to do it. I was front and center. You know what’s funny though, I must not have been that great because you’ll notice I only landed in the dance scene for about two seconds. I had to learn all of that.” Hill: ”I remember when Usher came in, we had to shut down filming. We had to stop so he could do his DJ thing at the prom.” O’Keefe: “When you think of a high school prom you don’t think of that. I thought it was one of the greatest parts of the movie. I had such a great laugh over it.” Hill: “To me, that scene falls in line with that type of film. We’re not doing August: Osage County.” — Up Next: Being on set, working with Paul Walker and M. Night Shyamalan
