No, I'm not talking about the movies. I'm talking about the fashion! All hail the red carpet and Joan Rivers! (Guilty pleasure confession: I love watching Fashion Police!) Who cares how well you acted in the movie, it's all about how you look and "Who Are You Wearing?".
Thinking about tonight's grand entrance of the glamorous movie stars at the Academy Awards got me waxing nostalgic on how the movies costumes influenced the general public.
For instance, did you run out and buy a sweatshirt only to rip it all up and wear it ala "Flashdance"? Were you styling a tight white t-shirt like Stanley (i.e. Marlon Brando) in "Streetcar Named Desire"? Or did you simply add an accessory or two to your everyday outfit like the Wayfarer sunglasses Tom Cruise wore in "Risky Business"?
Looking back I can see there were a few movies that greatly influenced how I dressed then and how I dress today. Here are my top 5 iconic movie looks of all time.
5. Karen Lynn Gorney "Stephanie" - Saturday Night Fever
4. Melanie Griffin "Tess McGill" - Working Girl
3. Julia Roberts "Vivian Ward " - Pretty Woman
2. Diane Keaton "Annie Hall" - Annie Hall
1. Audrey Hepburn "Holly Golightly" - Breakfast at Tiffany's
Your turn. What movies or movie characters influenced your fashion choices?
