Movies With Most Inspiring Fashion Style

How much can you tell about a character from their clothes? Quite a lot, it turns out.
Some films have costumes which become famous only because they’re so beautiful. Without a word of dialogue the wardrobe choices of a character can tell you who they are. Costume may refer to the style of dress particular to a nation, a class, or a period. In many cases, it may contribute to the fullness of the artistic, visual world which is unique to a particular theatrical or cinematic production. The most basic designs are produced to denote status, provide protection or modesty, or provide visual interest to a character. An instantly recognizable outfit can make dressing for Halloween easy, and film can not only reflect the fashions of a decade, but dictate them.

For example let’s see the Audrey Hepburn outfit in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: The little black dress, the cigarette holder, the tiara, the trench coat, the swinging 60’s orange coat and the pink rhinestone-studded cocktail dress. So many iconic images in one film.

Those movies are filled with tons of style inspiration, so here is our choice of 15 films with top costume design which is positively ingenious…
