25 Most Iconic Outfits Of All Time
SC rounded up the most iconic outfits of all time, that are widely recognised and popularly awarded legendary status.
Marilyn Monroe’s billowing white dress is the first thing that comes to mind the moment we think “iconic dress”.
Another one of Monroe’s outfits that has been revisited several times in pop culture is her “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” dress. Madonna, most famously, replicated the outfit in her Material Girl video.
Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s black dress is perhaps the most popular of all her looks.
Funny Face saw Audrey Hepburn wear scores of Givenchy outfits but the drop-waist wedding dress is, inarguably, the most iconic of them all.
Elizabeth Hurley’s Versace dress that she wore to the premiere of Four Weddings And a Funeral created quite a storm in the fashion world and since then, different variations of it have been worn by different celebrities.
Madame Chanel was the best advertisement for her label, as nobody wore suits with more panache than the lady herself. We believe it was Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel who was iconic rather than the Chanel Suit.
While we think the entire Corolle collection by Christian Dior (famously called “The New Look”) is iconic, this dress seems the most popular, appearing in several publications over the years.
Jackie Kennedy’s pink suit by Chez Ninon (an exact replica of a Chanel Suit) that she was wearing when her husband was shot remains one of the most famous outfits of all times.
Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress. The name says it all.
Princess Diana won the hearts of all Americans when she took to the dance floor with John Travolta. The world sighed as she twirled prettily in her midnight blue off-shoulder gown.
Kate Middleton’s wedding dress by Sarah Burton is one the most beautiful wedding gowns we have ever seen.
Kate’s wedding gown is said to have been inspired by Grace Kelly’s that she wore when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco. Kelly looked ethereal in her lace gown with a full skirt.
Carrie Bradshaw’s famous pink tutu dress made a tiny cameo in the movie when Carrie and her girls are packing up her sizeable closet.
Jean Harlow’s long shimmery gown in Dinner At Eight defines the eveningwear of the whole decade of 1930s.
Michelle Obama’s inauguration gown by a then relatively unknown designer, Jason Wu, remains one of his best creations.
Cher Horowitz was hardly Clueless when it came to clothes and her outfits (all knee socks and tartans) defined the era’s elite fashion.
Molly Ringwald’s prom dress in Pretty in Pink was a genius DIY by her character using an old dress.
Google “Madonna” and one of the first images you’ll get is her outfit in Like a Virgin.
Twiggy in a shift dress is quite easily identified as an iconic image from the colorful 60s.
Barbara Streisand made red carpet history when she wore a sheer suit to the Academy Awards in 1969.
Jennifer Lopez’s barely there dress caused quite the scandal in 2000, when she wore it to the Grammy Awards.
Olivia Newton John’s bodysuit from Grease is what she is best known for (apart from her infamous “Physical” video).
The Mumtaz saree has spawned several versions and variations since the Bollywood actress first wore it in the movie “Brahamchari”.
Princess Diana’s little black dress, that she wore to an auction in 1994, signified her independence from the royal family.
Angelina Jolie literally put her best foot forward when she appeared on the Oscars red carpet in a velvet gown with a thigh high slit in 2012.
