21 of the Biggest Beauty and Fashion Moments in Classic Cinema

We go all the way back as far as the pictures themselves to bring you some of cinema’s greatest looks

For the most part, there is something comforting about old movies, films from the golden age of Hollywood, where actresses like Elizabeth Taylor and Judy Garland reigned as queens. The first old Hollywood film I saw was The Philadelphia Story starring Katharine Hepburn. It’s something that I’ve kept coming back to, even years after my first viewing, and was the film that ushered me into my love for classic Hollywood. I was completely entranced by Hepburn’s performance, not to mention the gorgeous looks she’d served all throughout that movie. Whenever I think of a particular actress from old Hollywood, one film of hers comes to mind—the most iconic, the most memorable, coupled by an equally iconic and memorable beauty and style moment. 


After all, beauty back in the day was influenced mostly by movie stars. These women didn’t follow style; they dictated it, and it reflected in society. As Amanda Krause wrote for Insider: “In the early 1900s, for example, lips were the focal point of the face, and were often lined in sharp shapes. But by the 1950s, it became more common for women to wear rounded pouts in bright-red shades. Similarly, popular eye makeup has changed drastically; minimal colors were worn in the ’30s, and pastel eye shadow was popular in the ’80s.” Here, we go through some of classic cinema’s greatest looks, as seen in some of its greatest stars.
