Despite being born and raised in poverty, there are some women who have become icons of fashion based on their dazzling outfits. One of these is the future Princess of Monaco, who made headlines in her strapless, green dress. Others are renowned for the stories behind their iconic looks. If you’re looking for a story with an enduring impact, look no further than the films of Elizabeth Taylor and Catherine Deneuve. These films feature countless stunning costumes and have left us spellbound.
In the movies, the most beautiful dresses often come from the red carpet. The first to make this list was Halle Berry, who launched the naked dress craze. Another iconic dress is the mesh embroidered gown worn by Michelle Williams to the 2006 Academy Awards. It matched her bold crimson lip and was one of the most photographed looks of the year. And last but not least is Heath Ledger, who was nominated for Best Actor in Brokeback Mountain.
Another one of the most iconic dresses was worn by Princess Diana on her wedding day to Prince Rainier of Monaco. The dress was made of ivory taffeta and covered in sequins, lace, and more than a thousand pearls. The original dress cost $115,000 and inspired many copies in the years that followed. Today, the dress inspires brides to create a unique look for their big day.
