In the ever-changing panorama of fashion, Hollywood and its wonderful breed of costume designers have had a pivotal part to play. Although it’s fast and changes with every season, there are some classic pieces of fashion that just cannot be replaced or replicated. 

These pieces of history are so iconic that at some point in your life you’ve either dreamt about wearing them or have had an identical one made. Be it Marilyn Monroe’s white halter dress or Audrey Hepburn’s classic black dress, it’s just too hard not to want them for yourself.

Presenting 11 of the most drool-worthy fashion pieces that never fail to weave their magic: 


Marilyn Monroe’s white dress in The Seven Year Itch

A classic Givenchy, this black dress has set many hearts racing. And it’s certainly every woman’s must-buy.

Rachel McAdams’ wedding gown in About Time

Usually people wear white on their weddings, but not Rachel. She wore a simple red dress for her wedding scene in About Time. It’s definitely on my must-have dresses list.

Lily James’ dress in Cinderella 

There has been many a Cinderella movies, but none like this one. The movie, the cast, and of course, the dress. Made by the gentle wave of a wand, adorned by blue butterflies and the galaxy, this dress is just too good to miss out on. 


Jennifer Lopez’s green Versace dress

Though the dress raised many eyebrows and set many hearts pumping a little too much, it definitely had an edge. And let’s agree to the fact that JLo carried it like a boss! Did you know that it was this dress that made Google start Google Images? Apparently, the search for JLo’s picture was so high that a separate section for images had to be created on Google’s homepage. 


Gotta have ’em all!
