The Most Creative Costumes In The History Of Cinema
For life under lockdown, movies have pretty much become the de facto form of escapism. At this point, you may even be feeling like you’ve seen just about every movie you’ve ever wanted to see. (Is it just me, or is it surprisingly easy to burn through Netflix’s entire roster in a single weekend?) Thankfully, there is a wealth of cinematic gems to reconsider if you’re a style-conscious film buff. Over the years, several famous fashion designers have turned their hands to creating costumes. Christian Dior was among the first French couturiers to make his mark on Hollywood, dressing Marlene Dietrich for the silver screen back in the 1950s. Then there was Hubert de Givenchy, the man responsible for Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, easily one of the chicest moments in movie history. More recently, Miuccia Prada designed the extravagant flapper-style party looks for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby in 2013, while Raf Simons was invited by Luca Guadagnino to craft a sophisticated Milanese society wardrobe for I Am Love.
