Alex said:
At the dance Pam Dare and Lulu Pegg greet each other when Pam arrives (1:32.37-47):

Pam: “Oh! You look marvelous!
Lulu: “You look great too!”
Pam: “Where’s the other earring?”
Lulu: “It’s the thing!”
Pam: “Listen, I want to talk to the group. You gonna come with me?”
Lulu: “Yeah, but why?”
Pam: “Come on, I’ll tell you.”

This is a conversation between two named female characters (we learn both women’s full names earlier in the film) that is not about a man, so it passes all three parts of the Bechdel test.
