Marilyn’s white dress voted Most Iconic Costume


It featured in Marilyn Monroe’s best-known movie moment, so it’s no surprise that her white halterneck dress has been voted the most iconic screen costume of all time.

The William Travilla dress worn by Marilyn in the 1955 film, Seven Year Itch, earned its place in history by billowing around the actresses thighs as she stepped on a subway grate.

The dress was closely followed by Judy Garland’s gingham dress in The Wizard of Oz and Olivia Newton-John’s famous black pants from the final scenes of Grease.

Fourth and fifth places were given to the Ursula Andress bikini from Dr No, and  the black Givenchy dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
