The Most Iconic Fashion Moments on the Silver Screen

Who can forget the little black dress and mammoth shades made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's? Or how about the white halter-style dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch? Certainly not Female First who named those looks the most iconic in the history of cinema. Following Miss Marilyn we have Keira Knightley's flapper frocks as Cecilia Tallis in "Atonement", Kate Winslet as the balsy yet beautiful Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic followed by Olivia Newton-John's skin tight black on black catsuit for the unforgettable musical "Grease".
Personally I could not agree more with the selection of these ladies as the most momorrable moments. Although I must say I would have assumed Faye Dunaway would have replaced Kiera with her portrayl as Bonnie in Bonnie in Clyde, but ce la vie. The era is still the same (I have a big thing for the roaring 20's) which is good enough for me. What do you think though? Which of these styles is your fave?

I voted for Audrey. There's just nobody quite like her.

Poor Olivia Newton-no one is giving her the love! But she's up against some stiff competition. How can she measure up to Marilyn or Audrey?
