favourite five. iconic fashion in film.


Ilsa Lund. Ingrid Bergman. Casablanca. The feminine pieces in Bergman’s wardrobe are to her menswear inspired accents, what the romance is to the melodrama of the story line; an undisputed masterpiece.


Holly Golightly. Audrey Hepburn. Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Where the little black dress was born…..not to mention the morning after the night before.


Séverine Serizy. Catherine Deneuve. Belle de Jour. French films not your thing? Ne fait aucune différence [makes no difference]. The fashion is more than enough.  Though you might be distracted by the [r rated] subject matter.


Annie Hall. Diane Keaton. Annie Hall. Say what you will about Woody Allen [but not here, that’s not what this post is about]; there is no disputing his character creating genius. The androgynous perfection of Keaton’s wardrobe in this film is as monumental as her performance.


Andie Walsh. Molly Ringwald. Pretty in Pink. I wonder if John Hughes had any idea how influential his films would be on the style of an entire generation of teenage girls born in the early 70s?
