Fashion on the big screen

We remember them for their movies, for their great acting in them, or for their femininity and elegance…But it’s true that sometimes we just can’t help but bring them in mind for their iconic dresses and looks that have greatly influenced women’s style since they first appeared on the big screen.




Possibly the most characteristic film costume of the 30s was the white evening gown with ruffled sleeves created by Adrian for Joan Crawford in the 1932 film Letty Lynton. Macy’s, the New York department store, is reputed to have sold a million copies of it.



Rita Hayworth’s strapless black satin dress designed by Columbia Pictures costume designer Jean Louis has inspired countless red carpet copies.(Gilda – 1946)



Marilyn Monroe appeared in a shocking pink dress designed by William Travilla in one of the most famous scenes of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)




Grace Kelly’s dress designed by Edith Head in Rear window(1954)



Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch(1955) while her white dress is blown by the air of the grate.



Grace Kelly in Edith Head’s ice-blue chiffon cocktail dress in the movie To Catch a Thief(1955)



Audrey Hepburn in one of her famous black dresses by Givenchy in Breakfast at Tiffany’s(1961).


In Annie Hall(1977)  Diane Keaton’s   “androgynous chic” influenced women who started wearing men’s ties, waistcoats and wide-leg pants.



Sharon Stone in a white short shift dress by Ellen Mirojnick. No further comments… ;)(Basic Instict – 1992)



Nicole Kidman’s red satin gown in Moulin Rouge(2001)



Keira Knightley’s emerald green silk gown, designed by Jacqueline Durran(Atonement 2007)


 What about you? Which one is your favorite?
