3. Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Costume designer Edith Head
Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
No list of fashion films could possibly be complete without Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this film is that its fashion continues to be emulated today. Over half a decade later, women are still sporting dark-lensed, black framed sunglassses, liquid-lined cat-eyes and, possibly the most recognizable image from the film, the Givenchy created Little Black Dress. Even Audrey’s haute hair style is still much sought after.
4. Desperately Seeking Susan – Costume designer Santo Loquasto
Rosanna Arquette and Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan
Securing her place as a fashion icon, Madonna showed off her personal style in this classic 80’s flick. And it wasn’t just Rosanna Arquette’s character who was desperate to dress like the Material Girl. The release of this film saw women and girls from all parts of the globe sporting fingerless gloves, rubber bracelets, and “Boy Toy” belt buckles.
