The Cast of Damsels in Distress on Their Favorite Things for Spring

The mere phrase "damsels in distress" sounds like something out of a fairytale, innocent maidens in need of rescue. But in director Whit Stillman's irreverent new comedy of the same name (out this weekend), his four damsels are actually doing the saving—saving their classmates at fictional Seven Oaks College from bad dressing, boring parties and poor hygiene.

Since the characters they play look like such collegiate ideals, we asked the four stylish stars of Damsels in Distress—Greta Gerwig, Carrie MacLemore, Analeigh Tipton and Megalyn Echikunwoke—to fill us in on their favorite beauty products, stores and pieces for spring.

Greta Gerwig plays Violet, the ringleader of the group who decides to take new student Lily (Analeigh Tipton) under her wing. Violet and her friends volunteer at a suicide prevention center as a part of their "Youth Outreach" where they pass out donuts and teach tap dancing to ward off depression. She hopes to invent a dance craze.
