6 Iconic Fashion Moments in Film

When it comes to bringing us the best of the sartorial world, fashion and film will often go hand in hand. Here are some of the most iconic fashion looks to appear on the big screen throughout the decades.

Rear Window (1954)

In this classic Hitchcock film, socialite Lisa Fremont (played by Grace Kelly) dresses in a series of exquisite couture dresses while trying to impress her photojournalist boyfriend. Oh, and Edith Head is the creative genius behind each of Kelly's styles.

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is another no-brainer. The little black dress, big pearls and wayfarer glasses of Holly Golightly have long been considered a fashion classic and still continue to inspire whole generations of fashionistas.

Love Story (1970)

Set on the Harvard campus in the 1970s, Love Story is a movie that screams classic elegance. Jennifer Cavalleri (played by Ali MacGraw) woos both the audience and the preppy Oliver Barrett IV (played by Ryan O’Neal) in her wardrobe of camel trench coats, striped scarves and knitted bobble hats.

Clueless (1995)

While Clueless is often considered to be one of the best teen coming-of-age comedies, it is really the over-the-top fashions of Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone) that keep us coming back to it again and again. And now, many of those classic 1990s looks are coming back into style.

The Seven Year Itch (1955)

Who hasn’t seen the image of Marilyn Monroe standing on top of a subway vent while the air is blowing up her flowing white dress? Even today, this is considered to be one of the most iconic moments of both film and fashion.

Bonnie and Clyde

Berets. Pencil skirts. Tweed. Pinstripes. In Bonnie and Clyde, a pair of Depression-era outlaws dress to the nines (their elegantly minimalistic style has been replicated by many a fashion designer ever since!) while committing a series of robberies and killing sprees.
