Fashion and film go hand-in-hand. Here, Luxe Models take a look at what we agree are some of the most iconic fashion moments in the history of the film industry.
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Back in 1954, Audrey Hepburn had everything going for her. From the moment she stepped out of that yellow cab in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, everyone knew they were witnessing a big moment in fashion. The dress even has its own Wikipedia page – that’s how famous it is! A modern icon was born.
Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits
One of the first sightings of jeans from a Hollywood star in a film, this look from Marilyn in 1961 was legendary in its own right. And they weren’t just jeans; they were high-waisted, straight-cut Levi’s that the blonde bombshell teamed with a white shirt. Marilyn is well and truly the first jeans icon.
Grace Kelly in Rear Window
Full skirts and pearls were the epitome of regal elegance when Grace Kelly appeared in Rear Window 1954. A classic thriller, this film showed the close bond between her and co-star Edith Head. They both worked to create the look for Grace, whose black velvet and white tulle dress would become famous around the world.
Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan
Madonna’s signature look of the ‘80s was from Desperately Seeking Susan. It’s believed that she got the part in the film because of her personal style, as much as her acting skills. Madonna started the look in the video for Like A Virgin in 1984, then continued it in this film; layered mesh tops, religious jewellery, cut-off gloves, bangles, leather jackets and ripped tights. The definition of ‘80s style.
Gwyneth Paltrow in The Royal Tenenbaums
A regular for Halloween, this look from Gwyneth Paltrow is a modern day classic. Gwyneth made faux fur coats and military-sleek bobs de rigueur after her 2001 turn as Margot Tenenbaum. Margot’s style was inspired by Peter Sellers’ film The World of Henry Orient, according to the film’s costume designer, as she sketched it and they obliged.
