“Just because people are cliquey and snotty is no reason not to like them.” Whether she’s dishing out advice on who to hang out with or sharing secrets on how to style platform jellies, Quinn Morgendorffer, Vice President of the Fashion Club and avid reader of Waif magazine, rarely steers a gal in the wrong direction. In this edition of Fashion in Film, we’ll explore how Quinn, younger sister to the insufferable Daria, trailblazed her way into becoming a posh pop icon.
Debuting in 1997, the MTV series Daria was noted by fans and critics alike for its dry wit, quirky characters, and its championing of an outsider – but forget that! All of that pales in comparison to the wisdom dished out by Quinn, Daria’s popular younger sister, in each episode.
Since her first day at Lawndale High, Quinn was a hit with the cool kids – and quickly rose to the highly coveted position of Vice President of the Fashion Club. Despite the fact that Daria was constantly trying to ruin Quinn’s life by not doing her sister’s homework and ratting her out to their parents, Quinn managed to maintain her glamour and sophistication – no matter the situation. Not only did Quinn master her own flawless look each day, but she was always the first to help those less fortunate in the fashion department by offering her styling services.
From its quintessential 90’s trends to its dynamic credits, which feature various characters from the show dressed in often outlandish garb, it’s pretty obvious why we’re head over heels for Quinn (OK, maybe Daria, too!).
Is there an animated character whose fashion sense you can’t get enough of?
