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?

Natalie Does Her Best Audrey

In the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Natalie Portman dons the little black dress made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And she makes it completely her own. Check out the gorgeous pictures. [SOURCE]

Natalie wore the 35-year old dress in hopes of promoting style fans to spend more money when it is auctioned off in December. Proceeds from the auction, on December 5, will go to City Of Joy Aid – a charity organization that helps India’s poor. The dress is expected to fetch upwards of $94,000. [SOURCE]

Sigh. If only I had $94,000.

That Classic Look

Today’s starletts and screen sirens are taken cues from the leading ladies of the past.

Take a look:

Scarlett Johansen – Marilyn Monroe

Penelope Cruz – Sophia Loren

Gwyneth Paltrow – Grace Kelly

Kate Beckinsale – Ava Gardner

Audrey Tatou – Audrey Hepburn

The pictures are from a feature on Hellomagazine.com. Each modern day actress is given a detailed comparison to the classic star. You can view it here.
