  2. ORANGE: Wynonna Judd's hair

    "Why not THE WIZARD OF OZ?" you ask. Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize everything on my list had to be WHITE. Also, I'm LIVING for a 33 year-old Diana Ross playing Dorothy.
  4. GREEN: Mr. Green from the film version of CLUE
    600001 5cbd78ce c01c 4960 896c f4728682ca28
    "I work for the State Department and I'm a homosexual... I feel no personal shame or guilt about this." Mr. Green with the lead pipe in the anywhere.
  5. BLUE: Blue Jasmine

    600021 176c991f 2811 4843 8837 af356a1c204d
    "Won't you be my neighbor?" is Polari for "Your place or mine?" Indigo isn't on the flag because Prince Tuesday is too shy.
  7. VIOLET: Rita Moreno and George Chakiris in WEST SIDE STORY
    600031 2ed43dc4 c4fd 43ce a491 fcd8902d237a
    "Smoke on your pipe and put THAT in!" 💃 And by "that" she means her Oscar and her Emmys and her Grammy and her Tony. George just looks hot as sin.
