There is no way one can separate Hollywood and glamour. Right from the onset of the Hollywood film industry, movies have depicted Hollywood's glamorous and fashionable people. The glamorous world of Hollywood takes you far away from the harsh realities of life. The world of the movies is a magical place to lose yourself to, and fashion takes us closer to this glamorous world of the movies.
Nothing spells glamor than the vintage movies. From the outfits to the makeup to the hair, everything screams glamor with a capital G. Let's find out some of the most glamorous movies that spill the sass with generous dozes of glamor. We can still appreciate these movies and the reason is clearly because of the glamor quotient.
Marlene Dietrich is the beauty who splashes the movie Morocco with glamor and chutzpah. It is a romantic drama about a cabaret singer, the man she falls in love with, and of course, the complications that stem from the relationship.
Of course, nobody can forget Marlene's dresses and the way she chooses to flaunt them. The film was famous for its bold portrayal of the chief protagonist and, of course, was much before its times. Considering it was released way back in 1930.
This 1975 film had Dietrich again, which shows that she has been a part of not one but several vintage glamorous movies. This is also one of the movies that celebrate women's beauty in the true sense of the word, as women also get to celebrate their androgynous side. While earlier they weren't quite comfortable for women wearing men's clothes. This film set a precedent that it was okay to wear what you wanted and gender-fluid clothes.
Gone With the Wind
It is another movie released in 1939 and represents old-school Hollywood glamor like no other movie. Gone With the Wind has some iconic dresses, and one dress that stands out even today is the emerald green curtain dress. However, it is not the only one, there are more than a few priceless fashion moments.
Walter Plunkett, a renowned period customer, was the visionary who created fashion moments that can still hold an audience with its quintessential fashion fervor. More such examples will be Scarlett's wedding dress. Twin Oaks barbecue dress, the red Ashley Wilkes birthday dress, and more.
This 1946 film starring Rita Hayworth stars as a sultry femme fatale in 1946, Gilda. The film was intriguing enough with its plot and premise. However, the fashion moments in the film successfully enrapture you. The costumes are bewitchingly glamorous, and you can watch this film just because of its glamor quotient. While each outfit was glamorous, what takes the cake is the black strapless and satin gown created by costume designer Jean Louis.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Gentleman Prefer Blondes starred Marilyn Monroe and featured one of the most popular dresses ever in movie history. Yes, we are talking about the shocking pink gown from Marilyn's musical number, Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend. The satin and strapless dress had a straight neckline complete with a big bow on the back. It had long matching gloves lots of diamonds, and the look has been often reprised, the most popular one being Madonna's Material Girl music video.
Sabrina was one of the most popular classic romantic comedies starring Audrey Hepburn. It is a coming-of-age story about a young girl from France with a makeover. Hepburn's stunning wardrobe was thanks to Hubert de Givenchy that was part Givenchy and part Edith Head. One of the keys looks worth mentioning is the black cocktail dress with a boat beck and a black and white embroidered ball gown.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Breakfast at Tiffany's was another one of Audrey Hepburn's iconic films in which Givenchy provided all the fashion inspiration you may need. Here too, the black gown takes the cake as Hepburn pairs the dress with a tiara a beaded bib necklace, not to forget the stunning long black gloves. The dress was a gift from the Givenchy's and did perfect justice to Hepburn's character's style. It is arguably one of the most popular dresses ever Marilyn's pink and white dresses. This dress is probably the most famous movie costume jostling for primacy with Marilyn's pink costume in Diamond's Are a Girl's Best Friend. So, which one is your absolute favorite on the list?
