Let’s Hear It For The Girl

-------

Marilyn MonroeToday’s sci-fi epics (ahem, Hunger Games), throwback flicks (The Wolf of Wall Street being the latest, with its portrayal of down-and-dirty nineties bankers), and witty dramas (Blue Jasmine, anyone?) have some pretty impressive wardrobe teams. But when it comes to the most iconic on-screen ensembles, the films of yore take the cake. According to a poll conducted by the U.K.’s British Heart Foundation (it held the study to promote its “Ram Up Red” campaign, which raises awareness about heart disease), Marilyn Monroe’s William Travilla-designed white halter frock (yes, that one) from 1955′s The Seven Year Itch was at the top of the list. In second place was Judy Garland’s blue gingham dress and ruby red slippers from 1939′s The Wizard of Oz, and Olivia Newton-John’s second-skin black look from Grease, Ursula Andress’ white bikini in Dr. No, and the ebony Givenchy gown Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s came in at third, fourth, and fifth place, respectively. As for the win, we’re sure Ms. Monroe—or rather, her character, The Girl—would think it’s “just delicate.”
