Top Icons in Movie Fashion

What makes a movie iconic? The performances? The special effects? The music? sometimes it's as simple as the clothes that the characters wear.

This week model turned actress Diane Kruger returns to the big screen with her new movie Anything For Her. So to celebrate the release of the film FemaleFirst is taking a look at some of the top fashion moments on film.

Driven mostly by the ladies some of those classic outfits on the big screen have gone on to drive fashion for generations.


Top fashion moments:

1. Holly Golightly - Breakfast at Tiffany's

The role of Holly Golightly is, without the shadow of a doubt, Audrey Hepburn's most famous role and it was that little black dressed that has stood the test of time.

The actress was dressed by Hubert de Givenchy in a basic black dress with long black gloves top that off with a mini-tiara and a set of pearls and an iconic image was born.

2. The Girl - The Seven Year Itch

Nobody can forget Marilyn Monroe's white halter neck dress from 1955 movie The Seven Year Itch.

Tom Ewell gets quite an eyeful when her dress rises a little more than expected by a blast from a subway grate.

Even fifty years after the movie was released that moment remains one of the most famous movie snapshots cementing Monroe as a icon.

3. Cecilia Tallis - Atonement

Ok, so Atonement is the most recent movie that has made the list but Keira Knightley's performance as Cecilia Tallis in the adaptation of Ian McEwan's novel saw her move from girl roles to a woman staking her claim as a serious actress.

Her green satin halter gown, gathered and wrapped at the waist and ending in a long train was the costume highlight of this very classy movie.

This movie might only be two years old but it's a dress that is one of the standout costumes in recent years.

4. Rose DeWitt Bukater - Titanic

It become the biggest grossing movie of all time back in 1997, yes it really was twelve years ago when baby faced Leo and Kate graced the big screen on a doomed love affair.

But it was Kate Winslet that shone in her array of beautiful dresses, designed by Deborah L. Scott. Rose is shrugging off her uptight upper class upbringing to enjoy a night in the company of Jack in this beautiful crimson and burnt orange gown.

5. Sandy Olsson - Grease

'Tell me about it stud.' Are the words that turned the character of Sandy from little high school girl to full blown hottie.

In a low-cut top and skin tight Lycra pants, that poor Olivia Newton-John had to be sewn into, she sent pulses racing at the end of Grease in 1978.

The film went on to be one of the biggest musical of all time and remains as popular today as it was thirty years ago.

i agree so hard with all of these. !!!! feeel free to post pictures of ones you think this list missed, or just add on! everyone loves pictures of fancy ladies
