From the elegant, such as Audrey Hepburn’s simple black shift or Princess Di’s never-ending wedding gown, to the quirky, such as Bjork’s Swan Dress or the Liz Hurley safety-pin dress, to the simply unforgettable – such as Marilyn’s famous moment in white in The Seven Year Itch or Madonna’s perilous-having a look conical bustierre.
