Sex And The City 2

Sex And The City 2

The Sex and the City ladies are back on the big screen this week with the second movie, two years after the success of the first.

But with any Sex and the City movies comes fabulous fashion as the lovely ladies never wear any outfit twice.

So to celebrate the release of the movie we take a look at some of the most iconic fashion to grace the big screen.

Holly Golightly - Breakfast At Tiffany's

Holly Golightly is, without the shadow of a doubt, Audrey Hepburn's most famous role and it was that little black dressed that has stood the test of time.

The actress was dressed by Hubert de Givenchy in a basic black dress with long black gloves top that off with a mini-tiara and a set of pearls and an iconic image was born. 

Reservoir Dogs

With the movie Reservoir Dogs the world saw the great directing skill of Quentin Tarantino as the film still remains one, along with Pulp Fiction, of his best works.

The movie brought together a great cast of Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen and Chris Penn.

But the gangster film brought an iconic fashion statement as the black suits, white shirts and skinny ties became as a cult a trademark as the movie itself.

The Girl - The Seven Year Itch

Nobody can forget Marilyn Monroe's white halter neck dress from 1955 movie The Seven Year Itch.

Tom Ewell gets quite an eyeful when her dress rises a little more than expected by a blast from a subway grate.

Even fifty years after the movie was released that moment remains one of the most famous movie snapshots cementing Monroe as a icon.

Tony Manero - Saturday Night Fever

The seventies were in full swing when Tony Travolta strutted his stuff on the dance floor in Saturday night Fever.

With a catchy soundtrack the movie was a mammoth hit and before long men were on the dance floor with their replica white suits trying, sometimes without much success, to be Manero.

The white suit in the movie has become as famous as the movie itself and was an iconic image of the seventies.

Cecila Tallis - Atonement

Ok so Atonement is the most recent movie that has made the list but Keira Knightley's performance as Cecilia Tallis in the adaptation of Ian McEwan's novel saw her move from girl roles to women staking her claim as a serious actress.

Her green satin halter gown, gathered and wrapped at the waist and ending in a long train was the costume highlight of this very classy movie.

And this movie might only be two years old but it's a dress that is one of the standout costumes in recent years.

Sandy Olsson - Grease

'Tell me about it stud.' Are the words that turned the character of Sandy from little high school girl to full blown hottie.

In a low-cut top and skin tight Lycra pants, that poor Olivia Newton-John had to be sewn into, she sent pulses racing at the end of Grease in 1978.

The film went on to be one of the biggest musical of all time and remains as popular today as it was thirty years ago.

Sex and the City 2 is out now.
