The Designer Himself!

A dream come true would be a massive shipment of vintage Halston, one of our favourite designers at Closet. The pictures speak for themselves, ever outfit is fabulous but what is our favourite? Carrie's outfit worn on the campaign trail in Sex and the City, channeling Jackie O takes the cake and we're about to see a whole lot more Halston when Sex and the City 2 opens in June.

This Week's Iconic Dress: Liz Hurley in That Dress!

One of last century's most famous little black dresses would have to be the Versace number Liz Hurley wore to the 1994 premier of Four Weddings and a Funeral. Held together with large gold safety pins, the dress went on to make Liz Hurley's star shine bright throughout the 90s.

This Week's Iconic Dress: Princess Diana and that Wedding Dress

As a young girl growing up in the 80s I was completely infatuated with the late Princess Diana, especially her wardrobe. I remember flicking through my Mum's Woman's Days and New Ideas which were jam packed with pictures of Diana, and being absolutely in awe of her outfits. In 1985 she even visited our tiny country Victorian town and I had the honour of handing her flowers and shaking her hand ( I still remember her green tartan outfit in detail). A momentous occasion for a 12 year old!

Diana's wedding dress was a beautiful big meringue of ivory silk taffeta, and set a trend for wedding dresses in the 80s for puff ball sleeves and the bigger the better dresses. Designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, it was highly criticised for how creased it looked when she stepped out of the carriage, but as a young girl watching the wedding coverage on TV I thought it was beautiful. Surely an iconic dress of the 20th century.

This Week We Covet Sofia Coppola's Wardrobe

Surely no other contemporary does Parisian chic quite like Sofia Coppola. Her classic, gamine style is always perfectly understated and she never follows the pack, but has evolved a look of her own. It's no surprise she has been Marc Jacob's muse for quite sometime now.

P.S. Many, many thanks to The Soul Princess of Oslo for the Beautiful Blogger Award. I will pass it on tomorrow X

This Week's Iconic Dress: Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch

We love fashion history and icons at Closet and with that in mind we have decided to start a weekly post about the most iconic dresses/outfits of all time. Each week we'll feature an iconic outfit or dress made famous by it's wearer, whether it be from a movie, television or a red carpet event.

To start off we are featuring the Marilyn Monroe white halter dress, possibly one of the 20th century's most famous images, made even more famous when she stepped over the sidewalk grate in 1955 on the set of The Seven Year Itch.

Also we'd love to hear your thoughts on who you think has worn an iconic outfit, so please leave a comment.
