Movies and fashion have had one of the longest and most successful marriages in history. They share an unending love story, that when reflected on the grand canvas called cinema, truly works miracles. It almost seems as if, fashion is incomplete without talking about their impact in the movies.
Just like some movies leave a lasting impression and make your heart bleed with love, fashion too has a similar effect. But we have the option to be biased; we love some styles just a little bit more than the others. Take for example the stunning white halter neck dress designed by William Travilla, the one worn by Marilyn Monroe in the movie The Five Year Itch. Little did the then 29-year Monroe know that the scene where she stood over a subway grating with the train passing by and blowing her dress up would make such an impression in cinema and fashion. Instantly the dress and the actress became huge hit sparking off several, if not unproven, claims and law suits regarding the originality of the dress. But whatever be the reason, popular media’s love, if not infatuation, with Marilyn Monroe and her pretty white halter neck dress is epic.
But that’s not all. There were other famous movie dresses and stars who almost catapulted to the same fame as the likes of Monroe herself. Audrey Hepburn’s pretty black dress from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s is what sparked off fashion’s love affair with the little black dress and Julia Roberts skyrocketed to fame with her movie Pretty Woman clad in a blue and white cut-out dress. And, not just dresses, even accessories made their own mark in fashion history thanks to the overwhelming popularity and the media response like the sparkly ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the movie The Wizard of Oz.
