I hope you are all keeping well.
Good costumes can make a film enjoyable, but great ones can make it truly iconic and incredibly memorable. There are an array of amazing costume designers who have created stunning works of art, from Keira Knightley’s green dress in Atonement to Audrey Hepburn’s LBD in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Lily James’ Cinderella ballgown took 20 people and 500 man hours, using eight skirts. Over 111,000 Swarovski crystals were added for necessary fairytale charm. Her Swarovski glass slipper weighed just over 1kg.
Quite possibly the most famous little black dress of all time, Hepburn’s costume was designed by none other than Hubert de Givenchy (founder of Givenchy) and was worn in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The moment that Vivian truly transforms into a sophisticated and elegant lady is marked by this amazing brown spotty dress, which she wears to the races. Complete with a stunning straw hat and belt which cinches in the waist, this is a classic movie favourite.
It’s the Vivienne Westwood dress that kicked Carrie’s suit’s little ass, and it’s the most memorable costume from the film. The large silk white gown is the piece Carrie is dressed in when Big leaves her jilted at the alter; setting off the synopsis for the entire first movie.
Before she became one of the most influential designers in history, Coco Chanel stuck to the basics: crisp white shirts, black blazers and chic fabrics. If you are yet to watch this film, do it now, even if only for the fashion.
Audrey’s first collaboration with Givenchy proved just as impressive as all those that followed. This stunning white strapless ballgown with gold detailing totally stole the show in Sabrina.
This full-length yellow silk gown that Composure Magazine’s Andie Anderson wore during the end of How to Lose a guy in 10 days captivated fashion fans all over the world
Just as memorable as Vivian’s elegant brown and white spotty dress (if not more so) this phenomenal red dress.
