Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will reprise the roles of Eddie and Patsy as this much-loved television series is brought to the big screen for the first time.

To celebrate the release of the film, we take a look at some of the best fashion moments on film.

- Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)

When talking about fashion on film, you really do have to start with Audrey Hepburn's little black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

The Givenchy dress with black gloves, big statement jewellery, and sunglasses has become an iconic style from the film and is as famous now as the movie itself.

Not only is Holly Golightly an iconic film character, but the little black dress became a staple of every wardrobe - not to mention, Hepburn looks amazing in it!!!!

- The Seven Year Itch (1955)

Sticking with the dress theme, and it was an all-white number that stole the show in The Seven Year Itch.

Marilyn Monroe remains one of the greatest cinematic icons of all time and this film saw her deliver one of the most memorable moments of her career. The Seven Year Itch went on to be one of her most successful films.

- Annie Hall (1977)

It was back in 1977 when Woody Allen teamed up with Diane Keaton for romance/comedy Annie Hall. As well as being in the director's chair, Allen also starred in the film.

But it was Keaton - who took on the title role - who made the greatest fashion statement throughout this film.

With baggy trousers, waistcoats and ties, Keaton captured a wonderful androgynous look. Men's clothing became a major trend for women because of this movie.

- Atonement (2007)

Keira Knightley is an actress who always looks fantastic on screen but it was Atonement when she really made a fashion statement.

The Oscar-nominated actress took on the role of Cecilia Tallis in the adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel of the same name. The film saw Knightley reunite with Pride and Prejudice filmmaker Joe Wright.

Early in the film, Knightley stepped out in an emerald green dress in a truly stunning film fashion moment. Designer Jacqueline Durran went on to be nominated for the Best Costume Design Oscar.


- Clueless (1995)

There is no movie that celebrated fashion of the nineties than Clueless, which was released back in 1995 - yes, it was over twenty years ago.

Alicia Silverstone and Stacey Dash took on the central roles of Cher and Dionne and rocked some brightly coloured plaid suits and knee-high socks.

The fashion, especially the plaid, has become such a huge part of the film and is one of the most-loved aspects of the film.


- Grease (1978)

There is no musical that has endured like Grease, a film that is as popular today as it was when it was released way back in 1978.

Olivia Newton-John took on the central role of Sandy and she undergoes a terrific transformation throughout the film. She starts off as the girl next door wearing charming dresses that should innocence.

Of course, the film ends with her in some super sexy black leather pants and terrific heels - it is one of the cinema's most iconic film costumes and Newton-John is a knockout.


- Rear Window (1954)

Alfred Hitchcock delivered some fab films during his career and truly was the master of suspense. In 1954 he gave us Rear Window, which was his second collaboration with actress Grace Kelly - who had previously starred in Dial Me For Murder.

Grace Kelly was one of the most beautiful actresses of her day and lit up the big screen anytime she was on it - no matter what role she was playing

She has some wonderful costumes in Rear Window but the full white skirt with the black fitted top was a major highlight. Costume designer Edith Head went on to win an Oscar for her work on the film.

- The Fifth Element (1997)

Luc Besson was in the director's chair for The Fifth Element back in 1997 and it was Jean Paul Gaultier who designed the costumes for the film.

The designer created a wonderfully futuristic look for the film's costumes and it was Milla Jovovich who wore one of the film's most famous... of course, I am talking about the white bondage style outfit.

The costume left very little to the imagination but Jovovich, who took on the role of Leeloo, carried it off in style.

- The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

It was ten years ago when The Devil Wears Prada, which was based on the novel of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, was brought to the big screen by director David Frankel.

While Meryl Streep looked fabulous from start to finish as magazine editor Miranda Priestly, it is Anne Hathaway's character who undergoes the biggest transformation.

Hathaway takes on the role of Andy, who is looking for some journalism experience and had no real interest in fashion. She transforms into Miranda's chic assistant as the job starts to take over her whole life.
