We all love our denim so it’s no surprise that when it makes an appearance in the movies, it can become an iconic look that we want to copy. It’s easy to find hundreds of male actors in jeans on the silver screen but not so easy to find females in statement outfits. Those I did find however are certainly worth emulating. Iconic stars, iconic movies and iconic denim – let’s take a look at the best denim looks in the movies
Of course, the most iconic image of Holly Golightly is undoubtedly her little black dress and oversized shades, but when Audrey Hepburn beautifully sings Moon River at her windowsill, she is rocking a pair of blue denim jeans. It shows a really sweet contrast between the two sides of Holly’s fashion.
Thelma & Louise is one of the greatest feminist movies of all time, featuring two amazing women in their prime. When it comes to running from the law in the desert, both Sarandon and Davis have never so good, and their trusty denim jeans go a long way to helping them kick ass and look great at the same time!
When it comes to denim fashion, has double denim ever so good as it did when Marilyn Monroe rocked it for her role in The Misfits? Tragically, The Misfits was to be Monroe’s final film appearance, but we’re thankful that it gave us such an iconic denim look from an iconic fashion idol.
Farah Fawcett, and the rest of Charlie’s Angels for that matter, showed audiences that not only was denim a sturdy and convenient material for crime fighting and spy antics, but it was also something that could look amazingly fashionable! Who didn’t want a pair of flares after watching that show!?
Never has such little clothing caused such a big stir! When Catherine Bach showed the world her pair of tiny thigh skimming cut offs, it’s safe to say that the world of denim fashion changed forever!

In Erin Brockovich, Julie Roberts showed us that you can be a strong, independent, system fighting, life changing woman, all while wearing a tight fit denim skirt! Her Oscar winning performance in this movie is seriously one of her very best.
