Eye Candy: 10 Pastel-Colored Films

So Pretty/Very Rotten, Jane Mai and An Nguyen’s book of essay essays and comics that explore their relationship with Lolita subculture, is now available. We first learned about the book on The Paris Review, where the authors discuss the movement’s connection to the “romantic, decadent, and aristocratic parts of the Rococo era.” The candy-colored palette of Lolita fashion is such a visual feast and reminded us of several visually stunning films that use a pastel color scheme to evoke an emotional response from audiences. From fairytale-esque narratives to sickeningly sweet social subtext, here is a visual diary of ten pastel movies we love — just in time for those delicious summer sunsets.
