25 most iconic film looks

 This week, MarieClaire.com showcased their 25 Most Iconic Film Looks of all Time.  From Vivien Leigh's Scarlett O'Hara to Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra to Audrey Tautou's Coco Chanel, I agreed with most of the ladies on their list. These few particularly stand out in my mind, as each of these styles are quite relavant today...
Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly- the epitome of the LBD

Diane Keaton's Annie Hall- classic menswear

Marilyn Monroe- this image is just plain iconic!

Jennifer Beals' Alex Owens- the 80's are back...

Alicia Silverstone's Cher Horowitz- knee high/thigh high boots & socks=big fall trend

A few iconic looks I think MC left out?  Well...
Reese Witherspoon's Elle Woods- I'd never say go head to toe pink, but this look is unforgettable!

Kate Hudson's Penny Lane- boho wanderer, hippie chic

SJP's Carrie Bradshaw- unmistakable looks from SATC movies 1 & 2

Check out more on Marie Claire's list for the rest. 
Are there any other iconic looks you think of from the movies?

  1. Definitely some iconic looks. The Clueless one resonates because I remember being 12 or 13 and desperately wanting to be Cher Horowitz.

  8. Ah, this is perfection - and I LOVE you for featuring Elle Woods. Who can resist all that pink? :P

  9. I dress similar to Audrey Hepburn sometimes...hard not to when pointy flats and skinny pants are so popular right now. My coworker always makes fun of me. She hates pointy shoes. I tell her "she wasn't a style icon for nothing!"

  10. Definitely agree on all accounts! Every so often, I think, what would Annie Hall wear? Love Diane Keaton's style in that film so much

  32. I love this list! I agree with most of it, but I'm with you, where is Penny Lane? Carrie Bradshaw I can sorta see, because the movies weren't as big as the TV show, but Penny Lane needs to be on the list! And Annie Hall is one of my favorite movies EVER! This post reminded me that I need to watch it again, it's been too long!
