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.

"I love playing characters because you get to do what they would do and dress how they would dress. I love the way Violet dresses—those longer skirts are so flattering. I remember many times looking around [at the rest of the cast] and we all said, "Why don't more people dress like this?"'
