Rear Window, 1954

Grace Kelly was a fashion icon back in the '50s. The pistachio-green suit with a white, silk halter neck underneath is so chic and timeless. The overall design appears to be loosely based on the silhouettes of Cristóbal Balenciaga and includes statement pieces of jewelry like a pearl necklace, a half-veiled pillbox hat, and a chunky charm bracelet.

The Misfits, 1961

In the classic scene from The Misfits, when Marilyn wrestles with Clark Gable to save a horse, her clothes are strikingly simple. She wears a total denim outfit, a white shirt, and cowboy ankle boots. So casual and yet timeless.

Faye Dunaway’s era wardrobe of slinky midi skirts, knitted sweaters, silk printed scarves, cardigans, the windowpane checked suit, jaunty berets and the iconic honey gold bob oozes sex appeal. Her wardrobe is so classic, she could go to Fashion Week and fit right in this week!


Grease, 1978

Another enchantment for the eyes and fashion lovers. Olivia Newton-John’s second-skin pants moment is iconic! The curls and the black leather jacket add grunge but sexy touch.


L'Enfer, 1994

Emmanuelle Béart in L'enfer gives us these 90s vibes with mini printed dresses, gold hoops, and silk hair scarfs! This film is so French and so is its outfits – ageless, effortless, and sexy.


The Mask, 1994

Clueless, 1995

Cher and Dionne's outfits are still relevant in 2020. Clueless was one of the defining films of the 90s that both showcased and inspired some of the decade's biggest trends like baggy pants, slip dresses, mini skirts, and over-the-knee socks.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s retro riviera style inThe Talented Mr. Ripleyis always on our minds when it comes to dressing for summer. Her knitted blouses, full skirts, and espadrilles would be worn today without a doubt.

The perfect white T-shirt tucked into straight leg black trousers, a boxy leather jacket, classic vans, a pair of tiny sunglasses and – here’s where it gets interesting – a beret. Perfect combo for running errands.


Jawbreaker, 1999

There was no better way to end the best decade ever than with Courtney Shayne. She wore the best that Contempo Casuals had to offer. This movie is iconic because it mixes '50s silhouettes with an '80s color palette!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 2019

Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate rocks a black turtleneck with a white miniskirt. If you want to go for this Swinging 60s style, don’t forget a pair of knee-high boots. Love the happy yellow and orange colors that reminds us of the Californian sunshine.
