Hollywood’s Most Iconic Dresses Ever In A Movie


There isn’t a single Hollywood classic we know about where there isn’t a particular dress that started a whole new fashion trend worldwide. Show stopping dresses aren’t uncommon when it comes to Hollywood movies. But certain dresses developed their own fan following and are regarded as iconic dresses of all time.

We have made a list of the top 41 classiest movie dresses to date. From the gold gown Vanessa Bell Calloway wore in Coming to America to Whitney Houston’s most glamorous Queen of the Night costume, this list features all those sartorial choices of Hollywood starlets that fans still rave about.


Fay Wray’s White Gown- King Kong (1933)

In this scene, although the character played by Fray Wray is going through extreme distress, but we still couldn’t stop praising her choice of attire. The white gown featuring a sweetheart neckline became so popular that it is still part of the King Kong franchise. Every sequel made of the 1933 classic featured the same dress, which speaks volumes about this dress’s iconic status.


Jean Harlow’s Slipdress & Fur Stole- Dinner at Eight (1933)

We remember Harlow as the original blonde bombshell of Hollywood. In the movie Dinner at Eight, Harlow played the character of Kitty Packard and made it an icon with this art deco silk slip dress, which she paired with a white fur stole. This look of hers is the perfect example of vintage glamour.
