Amber von Tussle

Amber von Tussle is the secondary antagonist of the musical Hairspray.  Played by Brittany Snow in the 2007 movie and Cameron Dove in the 2016 live television special, Amber is a blonde beauty who often makes fun of Tracy Turnblad.  Hairspray is set in 1962, providing you with plenty of opportunities to recreate some classic vintage looks.  Finding exact matches for these kinds of costume pieces is almost impossible, so if you’re having trouble, be sure to focus on the classic silhouettes of the ’50s and ’60s to make your own one-of-a-kind look.  Though the most iconic looks for this character may be her chosen costume for the Miss Teenage Hairspray competition, there are plenty of vintage looks to choose from throughout the film or special, so don’t limit yourself and get creative!
