Cinema's Most Iconic Fasion Moment

We ask fashion designers to share their favourite fashion moment or style statement from the movies

“Tippi Hedren in The Birds. Alfred Hitchcock insisted that Hedren wear only blue or green clothes throughout the film. For the famous crows chase sequence, when costume designer Edith Head had to create a green dress, that allowed Hedren to run in it, she re-designed the green eau de nil suit she had done for Grace Kelly in Rear Window, taking inspiration from Chanel’s new suits at the time.”
