Pretty in Pink

Andie is an outsider at her school from the wrong side of the tracks. She gets asked out by Blaine, a rich and popular boy at her school. They fall in love, much to the disapproval of their fellow classmates. Andie has a best friend named Duckie who is secretly in love with her too. Steph, the rich "mean guy" of the school has always liked Andie, but she would never go out with him. Out of jealousy, Steph threatens to make Blaine unpopular. Blaine gets scared and tells Andie he can't take her to the Prom.
