25 Grease-Inspired Innovations

From Motorcycle Babe Captures to 50s Rebel Menswear

— August 3, 2012 — Fashion
These Grease-inspired innovations show how the iconic film remains a strong influence in fashion and pop culture.

The film, which was set in the 50s, featured some incredibly memorable styles, songs and actors. John Travolta set the precedent for men in leather, and the pink ladies made a strong case for highly coordinated clothing. Continuing to show through in modern photo shoots and fashion lines, these innovations highlight the best of the best in terms of the film's lasting legacy.

The film itself is a piece of history that will never get old, and given the cultural importance of the movie, it's no surprise that it continues to entertain people of all ages and generations.
