Molly Ringwald wants to find the polka dot prom dress she wore in cult 1980s film 'Pretty In Pink'.

The actress played high school senior Andie Walsh in the coming-of-age of movie in which her character creates her own unique pink prom gown.

Molly, 50, kept all the costumes she got to wear in the 1986 John Hughes-penned film except for the iconic dress she wears in the story's climax, and she wishes she could now get her hands on it.

Speaking to InStyle, she said: ''I kept all of the costumes from that film - except for the prom dress. Back then I hated it so much, but now, it's the one thing from all of my films that I would love to have.''

Molly has revealed that 'Pretty In Pink' costume designer Marilyn Vance created three versions of the high-necked dress and she hopes one day she can get her hands on one of them even though she has no idea what happened to the garments.

She added: ''I'd love to see that dress again!''

Molly - who is married to writer Panio Gianopoulos, with whom she has three children, daughter Mathilda and twins Adele and Roman - keeps all her other movie outfits in storage boxes to preserve them but there is a bag from 'Pretty In Pink' that has made it into her everyday wardrobe.

She said: ''There was this little pink bag with a little wave pattern on it that I carried in one of the scenes and I always loved it, so I still keep it out. Just recently, my daughter was going somewhere and I let her borrow it - she was very excited about that.''

Molly starred in 'Pretty In Pink' - which was directed by Howard Deutch - alongside Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer, Annie Potts,

James Spader and her fellow 'Brat Pack' member Andrew McCarthy.
