Dressed to Impress

Entertainment Weekly has a new photo gallery of the best and most memorable dresses seen in the movies. The gallery includes some of my favorite movie fashions, such as:

  • Audrey Hepburn’s black Givenchy dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
  • Keira Knightley’s green dress in Atonement
  • Grace Kelly’s dress in Rear Window.

But I think the list needs some additions. Such as: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Vivienne Westwood wedding gown from the Sex and the City movie. (There was a BIRD on her head.)

Rachel McAdams disasterous spring fling dress from Mean Girls (she couldn’t fit into a size 1,3 or 5) Sissy Spacek’s prom dress from Carrie. Got any favorites to add to the list?
