The LA Times Magazine has rounded up the 22 most iconic dresses in movie history … according to self-professed fashion pundit Freddie Leiba, anyway. There are, of course, the stalwarts that have deservedly made every such list time and time again: the Jean Harlow Dinner at Eight, Audrey Hepburn’s Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, both of Marilyn’s prettiest pinks (Niagara and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes) and, everyone’s favorite prom dress, Liz’s From Here to Eternity. From the modern end of the cinematic spectrum, there is Sharon Stone’s essential Basic Instinct number (a resounding hell yeah) and Demi Moore’s strappy black Indecent Proposal (a resounding hell no … come on, we’re talking of all time, here!)
There are, however, some curiously glaring omissions: No Grace Kelly? No Scarlett O’Hara?
Freddie Lieba, are you sure you’re gay?

Travel back in time and check out Kay Francis in Early Warners Brothers films ( before Betty Davis was crowned queen). Kay and her clothes are sensational.
