Over the years we have seen some truly exquisite gowns worn by some truly fierce, influential women from award parties to simple evenings out and iconic movies to fashion shows, our eyes have been blessed with some stunning pieces.
Going back right to the beginning the most iconic gown would have to be Marilyn Monroe’s ivory pleated ‘subway dress’ from the much-loved 1955 The Seven Year Itch movie which sold for an incredible $5.6 million in a 2011 Beverly Hills auction. A dress that emits grace and class.
One of the first bold steps regarding colour, in the fashion world, was worn by the very talented Nicole Kidman, to the 1997 Oscars. One of John Galliano’s first big commissions for Christian Dior, the unusual colour of, the limey/yellow tone was an extremely risky choice for the designer, which definitely paid off! This form-fitting chartreuse column gown is worth a hefty $2 million but we can safely say it is truly worth every dime.
Taking it back to the movie screen, Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress from the cult classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is not only a fashion staple in history but showcases elegance and sophistication.
The world of women’s luxury fashion is constantly evolving but we can safely say some of the most classic and iconic pieces will never fade away if anything they are shining brighter than ever!
