If there is anything constant in the fashion world, it has to be change. What may be ‘in’ today, may be ‘out’ in a season or two. It has always been fascinating to observe how quickly the fashion world evolves, and as a result of which we get new trends.
Having said that, some clothing styles are so elegant, chic and versatile that their charm remains practically unchanged, unaltered and fashionable for decades.
Today, we have decided to take a look at the most unforgettable and iconic dresses from the movies that have shaped the course of couture in recent times.
Marilyn Monroe – The Seven Year Itch (1955)
This legendary ‘flying’ dress, despite its simple design, continues to retain its iconic status even today.
Audrey Hepbern – Sabrina (1954)
Audrey Hepbern’s character did win hearts and so did her white ball gown.
Elizabeth Taylor – Cleopatra (1963)
The golden low-cut lame dress that Elizabeth Taylor wore, had a gold cape made from thin strips of gold leather. The cape sold at an auction for $59, 375 in 2012.
Audrey Hepbern – Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
It was after the film’s world premiere that the sleveless black dress became iconic and made Audrey the epitome of glamour.
Vivien Leigh – Gone With The Wind (1939)

Sex And The City in particular has been a fashion guide to many. What we learnt from Sarah’s vintage flower dress is to never be apologetic for our unconventional taste.
