We always remember classic Hollywood movies that are recognized for some things, some for the great direction, some for the immaculate screenplay, and some for the memorable acting by the protagonists or the other actors in the films. But that's not all the course movies are incomplete without memorable costumes.
Most of the movies you see have the actress wearing a stunning or an amazing gown that made it to the preserves of the Hollywood hierarchy. Here are some of the most iconic dresses that are beautiful, stunning, and right down iconic.
The perfect little black evening gown dress as worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's was a dress that went on to achieve cult status. Breakfast at Tiffany’s went on to be a runaway success and surprisingly everyone who saw the movie came out of the movie hall talking about the little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore with so much flair.
The dress was a Coco Chanel-inspired outfit and was all about cashing on the little black dress that came into the spotlight in the 1920s. Hubert de Givenchy was the designer behind the timeless sartorial wonder that combined elegance and oomph with equal measure. Fashionable women still like to feel a little like Audrey Hepburn when they wear a little black dress. No wonder it is mandatory to have one if you would like to get to the upper rung of the fashion ladder.
There's everything right about the dress, the chick, almost delicate and sensual quality of the dress that lends a Parisian flavor to the dress. Whether it was just that dress or the way Audrey Hepburn wore it, we can't quite put the finger on it, but it has made it to the hallowed world of Hollywood Fashion and is going to stay there forever.
People were enamored by the beauty and the vivaciousness of Julia Roberts in the film Pretty Woman. Her style evolves in the film from being a streetwalker to a woman who becomes comfortable with her newly-found upper-class chic sense of fashion and status, she owns all the looks and how. You could almost find yourself humming a pretty woman walking down the street when you see her acing her fashion game buying clothes from chic tony stores enjoying the moment of discovering the beauty of fashion.
While there are lots of dresses that she wore in the film that is still remembered with a great deal of fondness and wistfulness, we think the red off-the-shoulder scarlet dress with a sweetheart neckline stole the show. We could almost mimic the sheer look of awe that Richard Gere gives her as she comes walking down the corridor towards him. It's one of the most glamorous dresses ever, period. Marilyn Vance, take a bow.
Kate Winslet looked her gorgeous best in the movie, Titanic. She chose a smoothly feminine dress that is understated yet alluring. The free-flowing fabric and the feminine touch made Kate look ethereally beautiful. While she looked stunning in all the outfits she wore in the film, Rose's red beaded beautiful formal evening gown stands the test of time and fashion trends. It was the one she wore to the stateroom to dance it out with Jack. or the one dress she wore when she first met Jack, yes it was Kate Winslet's exquisite red chiffon dress that was a much-talking point. It was designed by Deborah L Scott and took close to 1,000 hours to sew. It is one of the most remembered and one of the most copied dresses ever.
Constance Wu had many an iconic fashion moment in the film, Crazy Rich Asians, It could easily be called one of the most fashionable films ever made and Constance's stunning outfits could contribute enormously to that statement. But the dress that stood out for most of us was the one in the makeover scene when she wore a princess-like blue outfit.
We don't know what exactly works for the dress, is it the copious amounts of tulle or frills? We just know we had a fashion jaw-dropping moment when we saw the film and that scene. Yes, it deserves to be on the list with many of the classic dresses we have named here.
