Chico’s on Monday night took over Joe’s Pub in Manhattan’s SoHo for an event to announce its re-branding. The evening’s entertainment featured Molly Ringwald warbling gamely in a white lace dress. Known for her teen roles in the films “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and “Pretty in Pink,” Ringwald “is boldly redefining herself as a singer,” said Diane Ellis, Chico’s brand president, who connected the dots by saying that Chico’s is taking bold moves to reinvent the brand.
“I turned 50 years bold in February,” Ringwald told the crowd, adding that Chico’s “seems very in sync with my own life. I’m really happy to talk about the brand. I’m wearing it. It’s very empowering.”
