Iconic Fashion Moments That have Shaped Your Wardrobe
If you're a fashion enthusiast, you're probably already jumping out of your comfy Birkenstocks at the news: Australia's Fashion Week is here!
It's a time when we celebrate the best and brightest the fashion industry has to offer, and with all the stunning collections being unveiled before our very eyes, it's hard not to get a little hot under the collar.
But before you dive into the shows headfirst and start losing your mind over the new season trends, let's take a breather and pay tribute to some of the iconic moments of fashion history.
From Claudia Schiffer's runway style to Princess Diana's revenge dress, these legendary looks have shaped the way we dress, behave, and even think.
So, let's take a stroll down fashion memory lane.
Little Black 'Revenge Dress'
For all the fans of Princess Diana (or The Crown on Netflix) we had to first start our throwback tribute with the Little Black Revenge Dress, worn on the evening Prince Charles admitted to his affair with the now Queen consort, Camilla.
THAT Dress on Elizabeth Hurley
Cut out dresses have not been a recent style revelation, as the iconic Elizabeth Hurley first stepped out in this stunning dress for the premier of Four Wedding & A Funeral (what an iconic film that was too!).
Matching Double Denim
Ah, the early 2000s. A time of questionable fashion choices, funky haircuts, and of course, matching sets. But there was one duo that truly embodied the spirit of this trend - Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Who could forget the iconic moment they stepped out in a matching double denim outfit? It was bold, it was daring, it was...actually, quite hilarious. Yet, we can't deny that it was also a little bit cool. There's something about matching sets that just makes us feel powerful and in control. So, even though we may cringe at some of the fashion choices from that time period, we can't help but admit that Britney and Justin were ahead of the game.
When Fashion Meets Technology
As if Bella Hadid wasn't already stylish enough, the designers at Coperni decided to take things up a notch and sprayed an outfit onto her. Yes, you read that correctly - SPRAYED. This fashion moment may not be popping up in your local stores anytime soon, but it was certainly iconic. Fashion meets technology in a way we never expected, and we were here for it!
Even Kim Reuses Past Outfits
Oh, the Met Gala, where fashion is art and art is fashion, and celebrities showcase their artistic expression through their outfits. But who would've thought that a new trend would emerge from last year's event, where everyone's talking about the dress pre-owned by the legendary Marilyn Monroe? None other than Kim Kardashian rocked the iconic piece, and it seems like she's opened the door to an environmentally friendly fashion statement - reusing past outfits.
Rihanna's Maternity Style
Hello there, bump! This icon knows how to break fashion rules and dress her bump with confidence and flair. She's proven that maternity style doesn't have to mean dull and drab. From comfy sweats and oversized jackets to slinky dresses and sky-high heels, there's no limit to what you can rock when you're preparing for a new addition to your life.
The Ultimate Chanel Dress
It has always been one of our favourite runway styles, but seeing this style recreated for Sofia Richie's recent wedding has us falling in love with this style all over again!
