Cher and Holly Golightly are the ones I've noticed, but I wasn't paying that much attention to what actresses are wearing until recently. Now it's the first thing I see, and one night some movie channel was playing some old Serbian movies, and in them both girls had some great outfits, but since the movies are old, can't download them or find images...

interesting post!

a side order of style said...

From the top of my head I'd say Alice from resident evil. I mean she kicks ass in style. Definitely not functional at all but she does look good. You've pretty much stated a lot I would have picked too

Adele said...

Cellar Door said...

Amelie is cute. And there's loads of b&w flicks. And Kristen Dunst in Marie Antoinette...

This is such a great original post, my favourites are empire records, buffy and alice in wonderland for sure :D

Romany said...

I agree with all of these (despite not seeing all of these movies lol)! You have great taste - and you know my stance on the Clueless fashions. ;)
My favourite film outfit ever...hmmm that's a tough one...I don't I can pick just one, but some of Rose's dresses (and, that coat...) from Titanic are definitely up there. Ah I can't think of any! Give me a second, I'll let you know when I've decided lol.

laughs at the hooker pic or julia roberts.
i love sandy in grease. I aunty made an a-line skirt for me, just like the ones they wore in grease. I also tied a small scarf around my neck to top it off. lols.

KATLIN said...

Wow, I've never thought this before, but that look from Pretty Woman is actually appealing to me! Haha, maybe the bandage dresses/cut outs trend is influencing me!
