Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This movie may be hard to follow and understand, but once you watch it, what will stick with you most is Kate Winslet's everchanging hair color. From blue to fire red to shades of green towards the end, you will probably end up being inspired to color your hair when you're done watching this 2004 psychological thriller. Besides her hair, her outfits are also extremely fun and colorful. One of my favorite outfits is her light blue ringer tee paired with camouflage cargo pants and pigtails.
Crazy Rich Asians
