Iconic Movie Dresses

As a result of watching old movies last month, our minds quickly went to fashion. So the only logical step for us was to pick our favorite iconic dresses from movies.

We can picture a lot of them re-interpreted for the present day, and we think they still make an impact when you see them.

Audrey Hepburn in "Sabrina"

Sure, Audrey Hepburn's LBD in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is noteworthy, but this Givenchy gown is stunning and convenient because of the detachable train. It's perfectly '50s, but it can still work for today. Remove one or two elements, namely the black ruffle trim, and it looks red carpet ready.

Marilyn Monroe in "The Seven Year Itch"

Before we even fully knew who Marilyn Monroe was, we saw plenty of copycats that imitated the famous scene white dress scene. That alone is enough to consider it iconic, but it's also a really chic, timeless dress.

Grace Kelly in "To Catch A Thief"

Finding a pretty outfit worn by Grace Kelly is easy, but it's hard to pick just one because she wore so many iconic outfits. In the end, we chose this beautiful blue gown from "To Catch A Thief" because of the way it looked on camera. Also, there was even a Grace Kelly Barbie wearing the dress, and that is about as good as it gets.

Elizabeth Taylor in "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof"

She may have been rejected while wearing this slip, but at least she looks great. The white dress she wears in the movie is very pretty, but it looks very similar to the one Marilyn Monroe wore.

Vivien Leigh in "Gone With the Wind"
The curtain dress may have inspired another iconic dress, but it's the dress she wears at the picnic that really shows off Scarlett O'hara's spirit. She doesn't care if she will freckle, and she's set on getting the attention of every guy in attendance.
