    Default Cinema's Most Iconic Outfits

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this

    Marilyn Monroe's floaty white halterneck, Dorothy's gingham frock, and Baywatch's red swimsuits: Cinema's most iconic outfits

    • Also featured was Audrey Hepburn's black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's
    • Grace Kelly, Ursula Andress and Jessica Rabbit appeared on list
    • List put together by British Heart Foundation to mark 'wear red' day


    By Martha De Lacey

    PUBLISHED: 07:15 EST, 2 January 2014 | UPDATED: 07:18 EST, 2 January 2014

    The floaty white halterneck dress held down by a giggling Marilyn Monroe as it blew up over a subway grate in The Seven Year Itch has been voted the most iconic screen outfit of all time.


    Monroe's fluttery 1955 costume topped a list of cinema's sartorial highlights, followed closely by the pretty blue gingham frock and ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.

    Olivia Newton-John's famous 'oh, hey there, Danny' outfit, worn at the fairground in the end of Grease - black leather trousers, red mules and red lips - came in at number three, and the red swimsuits favoured by the lifeguards in Baywatch won the number four spot.

    Michael Jackson's red leather Thriller suit of 1983, and animated man-eater Jessica Rabbit's plunging red evening gown all made the top ten.

    The survey was commissioned by the British Heart Foundation to mark the launch of its 'Ramp up the Red' campaign, and indeed red - along with white and black - ranked pretty high as key tones to create a memorable on-screen impression.

    BHF is asking the British public to Ramp up the Red on 7 February by wearing red and making a donation.

    they need something from Gone With the Wind -- either the gorgeous red number or the green "curtain" dress.

    I would have thought that the red opera dress would have been the "iconic" dress from Pretty Woman. It even fits in better with them trying to have a bias towards red to go with the campaign.

    It's funny how I wouldn't wear any of these, except perhaps the "Breakfast at Tiffany" one

    Always adored Grace Kelly's Rear Window outfit. Lovely/feminine/classy.

    I'm surprised the clothes that Theodora van Runkle designed for Bonnie & Clyde weren't included: they started a whole fashion trend!

    Love Marilyn's dress. I'd wear it now. Whorlia's hooker outfit is not iconic.
