5 Memorable Fashion Moments From Holiday Classics
Not my favorite moment from A Christmas Story, but gets honorable mention.
The holiday season is in full swing and now comes the avalanche of new and old holiday movies. Everyone has a favorite with memorable moments that tug at our heartstrings or make us laugh out loud. My favorite moments tend to center around the clothes, go figure.
Here is my list of 5 of my favorite fashion moments in holiday movies.
A Christmas Story In my opinion, one of the best holiday movies of all time and a must watch every year in the Luter household. Even though Ralphie is the star, little brother Randy steals the show more than a few times.
Fashion moment: Randy's all in one snow suit dilemma.
Honorable mention: Ralphie's bunny pjs from Aunt Clara
The Sound of Music I'm not sure when The Sound of Music became considered a holiday film, but I'm all for it. Maybe because it's set in the the Alps with all the snow?
Fashion moment: Maria makes the children clothes out of the drapes a la Scarlett O'Hara.
20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
Batman Returns If you want creepy Christmas done right, call Tim Burton.
Fashion moment: Michelle Pfeiffer's transformation into Catwoman. The scene comes complete with a few DIY tricks.
Love Actually The movie that launched a thousand American rehashes including New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day and probably Groundhogs Day if they can get it financed.
Fashion moment: Anything Billy Mack wears the entire film.
Honorable mention Juliet's angelic wedding dress and feather fascinator
It's a Wonderful Life Everyone thinks about the moral lessons and holiday sentiment of It's a Wonderful Life, but I think about the fashionista that is Violet Bick. Take another look at the movie and marvel at her wardrobe choices. Epic!
Fashion moment: Violet Bick and the "this old thing" trick
One more...I can't help it.
Edward Scissorhands Another Tim Burton classic with Winona Rider is the perfect teen dream, but Johnny Depp has the original Edward Cullen hair.
