I have always paid close attention to what characters are wearing on the screen. It’s such an important visual guide to a character and is often used as a definite way to demonstrate character development. For example, the classic character ‘glow up’ where they go from showing no skin, in very boring outfits to becoming the bell of the ball. The first example which sprung to my mind was Andy in The Devil wears Prada.
These are just a few of my favourite outfits from some movies:
- The iconic green dress from Atonement.
This beautiful satin dress was designed by Jacqueline Durran and it earned her an Oscar nomination in 2008. I remember seeing it for the first time and falling in love with the colour and shine. It is certainly a dress I have taken inspiration from at university balls and formals.
2. The Famous Penny Lane Coat.
One of my favourite movies contains the effortlessly cool Penny Lane and her Anita Pallenberg inspired wardrobe. Her coat, for me, being the most iconic.
3. The suit wearing Annie Hall.
Did this movie lead to me stealing my dads ties? It certainly did. Unfortunately I did go through an awful stage when I was around 10 of wearing a tie and a waistcoat in public and unironically.
4. The angel Juliet.
Might have to recreate this beautiful outfit for Halloween. I don’t feel the need to explain the significance of this dess, the fish tank scene explains it all.
5. The stylish Mr Gatsby.
He can certainly wear any suit well, but I think his suits were carefully chosen throughout the movie which supplemented his character.
