Drop Dead Gorgeous is a 1999 comedy mockumentary film following a group of young girls in the fictional town of Mount Rose, Minnesota. They have all applied to compete in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess Pageant, but the problem is that someone would literally kill to win.
The film starred up-and-coming and already established actors including Kirstie Alley, Ellen Barkin, Kirsten Dunst, Brittany Murphy, Denise Richards, Amy Adams, and Allison Janney.
A true gem, this cult classic remains one of our favourite ’90s films – the satisfying ending to see karma bit back is the cherry on top.
Written by Lona Williams and directed by Michael Patrick Jann, Drop Dead Gorgeous was released in June 1999 and surprisingly didn’t make its budget back at the box office.
For a film filled with such ugliness and murder, this single Drop Dead Gorgeous tattoo we found is absolutely beautiful. The stylised piece by @goldlagrimas is representative of the moment when Kirstie Alley’s character believes she has gotten away with her crimes and her daughter (Denise Richards) is making her first appearance as the pageant winner. Just mere moments later the float explodes in flames, killing the daughter and revealing the mother’s truly evil actions to the entire town.
Rather than looking at the float in utter horror, you’ll look upon this tattoo in awe of how beautiful it is…
