Duckie from “Pretty in Pink”

Jon Cryer as Duckie in “Pretty in Pink” is another of the sweet cute boys of the ’80s, and he had a lot of style to make him stand out. He always had the best hair, the best shoes, the best jackets, and the best accessories (aside from Annie Potts’ equally iconic record shop manager Iona) in that movie. In a perfect world he would have dialed it back a bit (to avoid slipping into stalker territory) and ended up with Andie. I like to imagine he went to college, matured a bit, and found a girl who could appreciate and match his style and sweetness.
